So what will WWDC 2018 actually include? Apple is expected to focus on its new software instead, which will be "devoted to making users want to pick up Apple gadgets".

At the event, the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to debut new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS, alongside a few hardware surprises that could include refreshed Macs and iPads. Software updates focused on Digital Health, AR, and integration of macOS with iOS are probable; however, major new software features like a redesigned Home Screen, AI for Photos, and file management for iPad have purportedly been postponed as Apple works to improve the reliability of iOS and macOS. Another upcoming mode lets you drop objects into an area and have them virtually remain in place after that.
