Apple WWDC 2019: What we want?

ByBrielle Wilson 2019-06-03 626

iOS 13, macOS 10.15, Marzipan, Siri, Mac Pro and much more. What has Apple prepared for us this year?

Apple hosts several events a year, but two of them are particularly important for the entire new technology industry. Whether we like Apple or not, it's one of the most important players in consumer electronics. Twice a year, in June and September, everyone is eagerly awaiting the news Apple will present. The World Developers' Conference (WWDC), as the name suggests, is intended for developers and developers who create applications for Apple devices. This does not mean, however, that for the ordinary user this event has nothing to offer. It is quite the opposite. It is at WWDC that Apple presents new versions of operating systems, which are tested in the summer and in the autumn are updated on millions of devices. The second event was the premiere of new iPhone models in September. It is after it that the official stable releases of new services presented in June at WWDC are made available. In terms of Apple's dates is quite predictable and this year once again in a row await us again events before and after the holidays.

WWDC focuses on interactive sessions for programmers, but a few days event begins with an opening presentation. It is here that Apple executives announce upcoming operating systems and reveal new products and services.

In this article we gather all the information about the new products expected this year. Officially we are going to learn everything on Monday, 3 June after 19:00.

The latest information indicates that iTunes may retire in the autumn of this year when new operating systems become available. This information was provided by Bloomberg.

How to watch transmissions from WWDC 2019?

As we have already mentioned, all the novelties are presented in the speech that inaugurates the annual WWDC conference. This year it will take place on 3 June at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time (19:00 p.m. local time in Poland).

You will be able to watch live online broadcasts from California on Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Windows 10, but only with Microsoft Edge browser. If you own Apple TV, you can use it to watch streaming using the Events app.

You don't need to register with the Apple ID to watch the opening speech.

iOS 13

For most users, the most important novelties are always those appearing in the next version of iOS. The system is used on more than a billion devices every day and is by far the most popular operating system in Cupertino and one of the most popular consumer operating systems in the world.

Every year, before WWDC, the internet is full of news about alleged new features in the next release of iOS. It is no different this year as well. Often, most of the information from reliable sources such as Bloomberg and Mark Gurman are confirmed and Apple actually presents features we knew about before, but there are also some new features that nobody thought about.

Here are the new features we expect from iOS 13:

▪ Dark mode

▪ Redesigned and upgraded applications Health, Reminders, Find friends and more

▪ Updated iMessage

▪ New Maps

▪ Improved parental control

▪ New device sleep modes

▪ Changes to CarPlay (in this case we expect a completely new interface)

▪ Improvements for iPad

▪ Mouse operation

▪ Rebuilt file management system

▪ Split View for iPhone

▪ Better handling and management of HomePod speakers

▪ Improvements for programmers - modification of ARKit, increasing the possibilities of using NFC, SiriKit

macOS 10.15

macOS 10.15 has a lot to offer. This could be a great year for Mac. Apple has already revealed some of its plans for the Marzipan project to make it easy to create applications for Macs by reporting existing applications from iOS. In addition, Apple can present UIKit, which will allow developers to create applications for both platforms at the same time.

Once again, Apple is going to refresh some of its system applications. This year we expect to see new applications: News, Home, Voice Recorder, Voice Recorder, Stock Exchange.

We do not yet know the official name of the new system, but it is known that it will be named in honor of some distinctive place in California. Apple has been using this naming system for several years and there is no indication that it will change.

Recent information suggests that Apple is planning to retire the iTunes app. We think it's a good decision. Today, fewer and fewer people are using this media player, and the vast majority of users are only using it to back up their iOS devices and to transfer files between their mobile device and their computer.

If Apple actually decides to delete iTunes, we'll probably see separate apps for Apple Music, TV and Podcasts.

But we're putting aside all the news, because the introduction of Marzipan technology into the MacOS will be a real revolution that the Mac hasn't seen in years. Apple's goal is to allow developers to easily swap existing apps for iOS so that they can run them on Mac computers running Mac OS. This can cause a real spill of all kinds of apps on Apple computers. The ability to use your favorite apps from iPhone or iPad on a bigger screen can boost your Mac sales. We don't know exactly what the whole application customization process will look like, because we have to remember that no Mac has a touch screen, and the entire system is designed to work with a mouse/pad and keyboard.

Rumour has it that the 10.15 MacOS will allow you to use your iPad as a second display. It is also possible that Siri will be able to set alarms and timers on computers. It's also written on the web that iMessage has been completely redesigned to support the features of mobile devices on a Mac.

Koniec iTunes?

A report published a few days before WWDC by Marek Gurman from Bloomberg summarizes the news we can expect on June 3. It contains all the information we already knew about, but Mark Gurman also mentions that Apple may abandon iTunes.

Here is an excerpt from the report:

"iTunes is the way Apple users listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, listen to podcasts, and manage their devices for nearly two decades. This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company will launch a trio of new Mac applications - Music, TV and Podcasts - to replace iTunes. This is in line with Apple's strategy for multimedia apps on iPhone and iPad. Without iTunes, customers will be able to manage their Apple iOS gadgets through the Music app.

Earlier information indicated that iTunes would continue to be supported and offer mobile device management and apps for mobile devices. We believe Apple will abandon iTunes. As a long-time Cupertino hardware user, I don't remember the last time I launched iTunes. I certainly didn't do it this year.

Apple Arcade and Apple TV+

In March this year, Apple organized a special conference devoted to new services, which will debut soon (autumn). Apple Arcade is a service that aims to provide iOS and Mac users with access to many exclusive games through a monthly subscription. New games are likely to be created using UIKit, which will offer new capabilities with iOS 13 and macOS 10.15.

Apple TV+ is another service that was also presented in March. Apple on WWDC will probably not focus on it, but will present new applications that will enable access to it.


Siri is an intelligent voice assistant from Apple. It was first implemented less than 8 years ago in 2011 on the occasion of the launch of iPhone 4s - the first Apple phone with a dual-core processor. Unfortunately, Apple neglected the development of this solution. Siri in 2019 behaves not much better than during the premiere. In relation to the Google Assistant, which was presented late Siri has many limitations. We ignore the fact that the Google Assistant is available in Polish and Siri is only available in English. In addition, the Apple solution is quite choosy in terms of pronunciation, which causes additional complications.

We didn't hear much information about the news to be implemented in Siri. On the Internet I write that Siri on computers has to offer the ability to set timers and alarms, and has to get access to more information. Apple is about to introduce a new freamwork SiriKit, which will enable better use of the voice assistant. We hope that this year's Cupertino company has contributed and we will see significant improvements in the context of Siri.

Mac Pro and new monitor

We first heard the news that Apple is working on a new Mac in 2017. Last year, Apple confirmed between the lines that it was preparing to launch a brand new Mac Pro in 2019. WWDC 2019 is the perfect time to present a brand new workstation for professionals. With the new computer, we'll probably see a monitor as well.

At the moment, we don't know much detail about the new computer from Apple. We know for sure that the company is aware that the previous project, whose appearance resembles a garbage can, did not work. Customers did not like the new enclosure, which made it impossible to install additional drives inside the computer. The new Mac Pro should be a little more conservative in this regard and look like a classic PC. We're also expecting more modularity than we knew from the models before 2013.

On the subject of the new display, the latest rumours suggest that Apple plans to launch a 31.6-inch wide aspect ratio display. It is expected to offer a 6K resolution. There is also talk of a special mini-LED design to offer the features known from OLED screens, while being cheaper to produce. The new monitor is to have an exceptionally wide range of colors.

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro

Apple recently updated its 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with next-generation Intel processors, so it's less likely to launch the new 16-inch MacBook Pro than it was a few months ago. If the company is still planning to launch the production of a new laptop, it is likely to be presented at WWDC.

While the new MacBook Pro laptops have only received new processors and all the changes have ended there, we don't suspect Apple is planning to refresh its laptops just before the new design is introduced.

However, there is one explanation. The new 16-inch MacBook Pro can be what Mac Pro is for desktops. Perhaps Apple wants to create a very efficient mobile workstation that will be positioned even higher than the current 15-inch models? This question will be answered on June 3.
