What We Know So Far

We don't yet know what Apple will announce at WWDC 2023. Here's what happened at the most recent event.

As expected, software announcements were the stars of the 2022 event. Here are some of the most notable:

iOS 16

iOS 16 will have a new lock screen with a new look and enhanced personalization options, such as photo shuffle and widgets on the lock screen.

New features are coming to Messages, with edit message, undo send, and mark unread being the most notable. SharePlay will be available in FaceTime and Messages.

Apple Wallet now includes Apple Pay Later and Apple Order Tracking.

Apple Maps has been redesigned with a new look and new features, such as cycling, lookaround, and multi-stop routing.

There are also improvements coming to Spatial Audio that allow for personalization of audio on AirPods.

iPadOS 16

iPadOS 16 will have updates to make apps function more like those on a desktop. Reference Mode allows for a consistent workflow between the iPad and the Mac. Virtual memory swap and display scaling provide enhanced capabilities for power users, and Stage Manager provides more organized workspace management.

watchOS 9

watchOS 9 has several new clock faces to choose from. Its fitness app now comes with Running Form Metrics.

In addition, it offers enhanced health capabilities including Sleep Stages and a Medications app.

macOS Ventura

A new operating system, MacOS Ventura, comes with several new apps, such as Stage Manager, which lets you focus on the app you're using without distractions.

Spotlight gets a boost and now allows quick look. It can also search images and live text, and run a timer.

Also enhanced are the performance of Safari and expanded features for Mail, which offers undo send, scheduled send, follow up, remind me, and a more powerful search function.

New MacBooks Powered by M2

The new M2 chip takes Apple's power-efficiency focus even further than the M1. It offers 100GBs of unified bandwidth, 24GBs of memory, an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, and a next-gen media machine.

The MacBook Air with the new M2 boasts a thin, durable, all-aluminum design and weighs only 2.7 lbs. It comes in silver, space gray, starlight, and midnight. It has a 13.6" liquid retina display, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, 3-mic array, 4-speaker sound system, and Force Touch trackpad.

The 13" MacBook Pro with the M2 comes with 24GB of memory, an 8-core CPU, 10-core GPU, and 20 hours of video playback.

Both machines are expected to be available in July 2022.
