But then developers, designers and media from all over the world will participate in this year’s WWDC online, which will also be the biggest WWDC conference ever held by apple.
From the previous WWDC developers’ conferences, this year’s WWDC is mainly in the version update of IOS, ipados, Mac OS, watchos, tvos and other full platform operating systems. In addition, in the past years, Apple has great potential to bring new hardware to WWDC. Some time ago, the new 2020 IMAC and the new Mac with ARM CPU are likely to be announced on this WWDC.
In terms of software, IOS 14 and iPad OS 14 are coming, and IOS 14 will be compatible with all devices that can run IOS 13, which means that old users like iPhone 6S can also update. In IOS 14, Apple may add a list style screen view on the basic application grid, and the arrangement of icons will also be based on the frequency of use or Siri’s suggestions.
The iPad OS 14 will support global mouse operation. According to the external media message, it can be seen from the exposure code.

If Apple succeeds this time, Apple will use ARM processor in more MAC products in the future.
