iOS 16: these features are expected to be shown
Most likely, Apple will introduce iOS 16. In fact, the mobile operating system probably won’t appear until the fall along with the next iPhones.
It is not yet clear until which device variant Apple plans to support iOS 16. Last year, all devices compatible with iOS 14 could also switch to iOS 15. This time, the iPhone 6s and the first iPhone SE could be abandoned. But that is not yet clear.
According to Gurman, Apple’s most trusted source for forecasts, the update should be “pretty significant” overall, even if there won’t be a redesign.
Above all, notifications should be the focus this time and see some changes. Health tracking will also be supplemented by new features, it is said.
New health features in watchOS
In line with this, there should also be major adjustments to the health features of watchOS, the Apple Watch operating system. It is not known if an upcoming model of the watch can also collect other health data.
Finally, according to rumors, one should be able to count on new features for iMessages. If that’s all, we’ll see tonight.
iPadOS 16: Are real windows coming?
iPadOS has been treated as a separate operating system for some time, though of course it’s still closely related to iOS.
But in recent versions of iOS, Apple has increasingly built separate features for the larger screens, especially when it comes to multitasking. According to Mark Gurman, Apple will continue down this path with iPadOS.
Expect innovations in the area of window management and multitasking. Professional iPad users in particular would thank Apple for that.
MacOS: More adjustments to the M1 platform
A new version of the operating system on the Mac side is also pending. There is always a lot of guesswork here as to what the version will be called. 9to5Mac reports that a company believed to be owned by Apple has renewed the rights to two potential names: “Mammoth” and “Monterey.”
Apart from that, according to Gurman, some system applications will be reviewed. Also, system settings need to be adjusted to more closely match iOS. Experience has shown that there are still some innovations to come.
Colorful Macs and maybe RealityOS?
In addition, there will surely be some news for watchOS and tvOS, the Apple TV platform.
But it’s more interesting: Does Apple also show new hardware? It seems that. There are at least a few new Macs to be introduced this year. Experts assume that Apple could show the new revised version of the MacBook Air.
Gurman suspects the biggest redesign in over a decade, with a completely overhauled design, maybe even a notch on the screen. According to Gurman, new colors are also conceivable. He pats on a dark blue and champagne gold.
