As with previous years, the latest version of iOS will not only appear on Apple's next smartphone, but in current models already available to consumers. But you never know Apple never fails to surprise anyone.

Plus, there's always a chance that Apple will introduce some new hardware.

WWDC 2018 is where Apple typically lays out its software plan for the next year.

A few days ahead of the famous event, the only thing known for sure is that Apple will outline the main updates coming to its various operating systems (macOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS). There are rumours that Apple will be doing some form of integration between iOS and macOS apps, but it's not confirmed if we will actually see this announced at WWDC 2018. The company is expected to launch the next version of its iOS operating system, iOS12, new MacBooks and cheaper variant of HomePod. This will let users monitor they usage of the iPhone, iPad, control time spent on an app. Apple iOS 12's Digital Feature will be in the settings app. Apple iOS 12 could also see a redesigned lockscreen with more detailed widgets supported.

Bloomberg reports that there will be updates to ARKit, the framework the company released a year ago to help developers build augmented-reality apps. This may or may not necessarily be a whole new variant with new designs but maybe just a more sophisticated upgrade. In any case WWDC 2018 is kicking off tomorrow so hopefully we'll have more details to share then. But with a 1 billion iPhone user base under its belt, Apple will surely look to catch up its voice assistant with newer and more AI-enabled features so as to compete with Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant.
