What to expect at WWDC 2020 |
WWDC is Apple’s annual opportunity to unveil the latest for its software platforms. This year, we expect to see the announcement of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, macOS 10.16, and watchOS 7. There is also the possibility of new hardware in the form of a redesigned iMac, but last-minute rumors suggest we’ll have to wait until later this summer instead.

The WWDC 2020 news will kick off with a Special Event Keynote at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. It’s during this event that we expect the announcement of things like iOS 14 and macOS 10.16.
Following the Special Event Keynote, Apple will hold its annual Platforms State of the Union address. This will take place at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET and be available on-demand via the Apple Developer app and Apple Developer website.
