Liveblog starts in:
At 10 a.m. Pacific time (1 p.m. Eastern) this Monday, June 7, Apple will kick off the keynote presentation at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The company is sure to announce details about the next versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS, but we could also be in for a lot more, including (potentially) new Apple Silicon Macs.
Here at Ars Technica, we’ll be liveblogging the event as soon as it starts and publishing stories about the announcements as they are revealed.
It’s going to be an interesting event. We know a lot less about iOS 15 than we did about iOS 14 before last year’s event, so there are sure to be some surprises.
And it’s worth noting that the event marks the halfway point in Apple’s two-year roadmap to update its entire Mac lineup with Cupertino’s own, custom-designed silicon, replacing Intel. Leaks and reports have said that Apple is working on a successor to the much-lauded M1 chip, destined for higher-end Macs like the MacBook Pro or a replacement for the 27-inch iMac.
We don’t know for sure that the new chip and accompanying computers will be announced at this event, but it seems highly plausible. And there are other mysterious new developments, too: There have been rumblings of a potential homeOS announcement, whatever that might entail, and new HomePods as well.
