Predictions for Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (2018 Edition)

Tech Industry
These are the top five predictions for Apple's World Wide Developer's Conference. How do ou rank predictions? I don't know how you would do it, but that's my fault for not consulting you. I'm sorry for letting you down. Anyway, we'll be ranking these from most likely to happen to least likely happen. Let's get to it. At number 5, OS updates for all things. This is pretty much a given since it happens every year. Expect to see a new version of Mac OS and iOS with snazzy bells and whistles. Although, I think a lot of people may just be happy with iOS if it were a tiny bit less buggy. Maybe we could see a multi-user mode for iPads? Watch OS and TV OS are also due for some updates. Which will likely happen at the event. [MUSIC] Coming in at number 4, we will see Siri improvements. At Google IO, Google showed of Duplex, a new feature coming to its Google Assistant. In the demo, Duplex was capable of having a conversation with a human being in an eerily natural way. Amazon's Alexis is also still Chugging along. Then there's Siri which is kind of stuck as a punchline at times. Apple will probably have some kind of answer Google and Amazon this year. That brings us to number three, a new iPad Pro. In March, Apple brought pencil support to the regular iPad. The pencil was one of the distinguishing features of the iPad Pro line. So Apple needs to rev the iPad Pro to set it apart. What else is left to improve? How bout that smart connector. Right now there are just a few smart connector accessories. Or maybe a mini pencil accessory that's housed within the iPad Pro, Apple you can call it the golf pencil. Perhaps we will see the iPad Pro get face ID. Something will change on the iPad pro. Number two, new Mac hardware. Last year, Apple unveiled the iMac Pro with spec buffs for the regular iMac and its laptops. Before that, you would have had to go way back to 2013 to find the last time Apple showed off new Mac hardware at WWDC, 2013 is the year the Mac Pro turned into that garbage can version. Reports say a new Mac Pro will arrive in 2019. Would Apple give us a preview this early? Maybe. Then there's the Mac Mini, which has gone several years without an update. Does Apple even remember it made the Mac Mini? I don't know. And the number one least likely thing to make an appearance at WWDC is a new iPhone SE. The original iPhone SE arrived in March of 2016. Apple did release higher capacity iPhone SE model sin March 2017. However, the SE remains relatively the same as the original release. Rumors say this could be the time we will see a new SE but here's the problem with that. This is a developers conference. What use is a new iPhone SE to them? Also, what kind of improvements could it have compared to the original SE? If you add face ID to the SE, won't that tick off people who bought the iPhone 8 or 8 plus? Apple traditionally introduces new iPhones in September, but again, the SE was introduced in March. So Apple could do whatever it wants whenever it wants. We just don't think it's likely a new SE will show up just yet. A big thanks to Scott Stein for letting me pick his brain for this episode. What do you wanna see at Apple's event? New iPads? A new Apple Watch or are you still holding out hope for an Apple Car or a television made by apple? Let me know. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and we'll see you online. [MUSIC]
