June is always about WWDC for Apple and that is the case again this year. The WWDC is Apple's annual conference for developers, where the latest developments in software (and sometimes hardware) are discussed. As Apple fans, we learn what's new in the latest iOS update, while developers learn how to improve their apps and what new features are coming. The WWDC 2023 has now been officially announced via a press release, with a date. WWDC 2023 will be held from June 5 to June 9, with the important keynote on Monday June 5.

WWDC 2023 date announced: June 5

During the presentation on Monday, June 5 around 7:00 PM Dutch time, Apple will discuss key announcements from WWDC. At least we can expect the unveiling of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10 and more there. Apple highlights the most important improvements for the new features, after which the first beta for developers is released shortly afterwards. During the rest of the week, Apple will discuss how to implement the new features in apps in various sessions for developers. Sometimes some extra useful functions pop up that are not discussed in the presentation. The keynote can be followed via a live stream and at iCulture we will of course report extensively on it, also during the rest of the week.

But it's not just about software. This year we expect a large part of the presentation to be about hardware. Apple's long-awaited mixed reality headset, possibly named Reality Pro, will finally be unveiled here according to the most reliable sources. Apple originally wanted to do that this spring, but that unveiling had to be postponed until WWDC. There is no confirmation yet that Apple's headset will finally be shown. But everything points to it really happening in June.
