What Is Apple Likely to Announce Today at WWDC 2020?

The future of Apple will be unveiled at the 31st annual Worldwide Developers Conference [WWDC20]. The five-day 2020 event is set to kick off on Monday, beginning with a special keynote address.

Apple has kept quiet on what new surprises are in store for product users, but the rumor mill has been running rampant for weeks with tech lovers and reporters speculating everything from the new iOS 14 software for the iPhone and iPad to new upgrades for macOS and tvOS and possible design changes for MacBook, iMac, Mac Pros, Apple TV and Apple Watch.

Perhaps the biggest change Apple may finally shed light on are the rumored Mac Chips that power processors in Mac computers. Apple initially relied on chips provided by Intel to power Mac hardware, however, a Bloomberg report in early June claimed that Apple had created its own processors built with the same technology that's used in iPhone and iPad chips. The new technology could resort in thinner designs for the new Macs—which are expected to release in 2021—including a potentially quieter cooling fan. The new chips may also sustain battery life for longer.

For the first time ever, any and everybody can tune into WWDC20, which will be held completely online. Apple is expecting more than 23 million people to tune in virtually to the keynote event and Platforms State of the Union address as well as the multiple engineering sessions and developer forums scheduled throughout the week now that viewers can watch via live stream.
