iPhone maker Apple’s grand annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set to take place in the heart of San Francisco, much to the excitement of Apple fanboys and developers. The Cupertino, California based company will be sharing updates on the 2016 iPhone, Mac, Siri and many more exciting things starting at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. Until then, let’s take a look at what Apple is expected to unveil at the 2016 WWDC.

It seems like the theme of this year’s keynote is software, software and even more software.

iOS 10

Apple is bringing big improvements to its mobile device operating system, iOS 10. Rumors have it the next OS will have an all-new interface, Siri will get more control and Apple Music will get a big update. With iOS 10, and Apple’s new OS X update, Siri is said to be making its debut on MacBooks.

Soon Apple users may be able to use Siri across a wider variety of apps as Apple is planning to open up its voice-enabled assistant to third-party developers.

After the controversy surrounding the FBI and the iPhone 5c of San Bernardino shooter, it is expected that the new iOS will have improved security as the security agency was able to crack open the device without Apple’s help.

 

Also, Touch ID fingerprint sensor may debut on Apple Mac devices.

WatchOS

The watchOS 3 could get upgrades to improve its performance and battery life.

Apple could make more iOS apps work on the Watch as well. Rumors have it that Apple will tweak the interface of Watch OS 3 and provide more customization options.

iMessage will come to Android

Speculation has it that Apple is planning to introduce iMessage to Android. Now Android users will be able to use this app from Apple as well.

Entertainment factor

Being held at a musical venue, San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, it can be assumed that there would be another band performance like the last time around when One Republic performed at the Apple event. Who would it be this year? Leave your best guess as a comment below.
