On the other hand, Apple has approved an updated version of the Telegram messaging service, a day after Telegram complained that it had been prevented from getting software improvements into the hands of iPhone owners worldwide.

Previous year Apple rehabilitate the App store for iOS device and so this time it could be Mac App Store's turn. If implemented, cross-platform apps might help solve Mac's app ecosystem problems, and it would also be interesting to see how well iOS apps run on traditional laptops and desktops. In iOS 12, Siri will be able to give suggestions based on past user activities - such as ordering coffee before a morning commute - and add Siri shortcuts in either a new Shortcuts app or in specific partnered apps.

2018 will take place on June 4 in San Jose, California.

Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more. At the event, Apple is expected to announce the next version of its iOS as the iOS 12. It's also typical that any payout mostly goes to lawyers, with customers receiving trivial sums in damages. This implies that developers will have access to a lot of features after the 2018 WWDC, with more changes coming in iOS 12.

Support for third-party watch faces is reported to be part of watchOS 5, along with an enhanced focus on health and activity features but most coverage of the update tends to come in the form of wish lists versus anything concrete.

Fallout 76 might release in just a few weeks
Fallout games aren't known for being delivered in July, but they aren't usually online survival games either. Bethesda may hedge its bets and wait a bit before releasing Fallout 76 into such a crowded retail month.

The latest version of tvOS is called tvOS 12, which is expected to get an update, but it might not be a major renovate over the current gen.

There are various reports, including one from Bloomberg, saying that this year's WWDC will be "hardware-less". On top of that, Apple could refresh the MacBook Pro lineup with newer processors too, like it did past year. So there is also a big chance that the spotted Geekbench listing is meant for a new MacBook Pro to be revealed sometime in the fall.

But there is some speculation that the Apple iPhone SE 2 might be unveiled.

Apple and Google have been going head to head in a bid to attract more software developers to their platforms as they race to introduce more promising augmented reality (AR) tools. So it will be no surprise if this year is another "hardware-less" WWDC.
