Apple is set to launch its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday to announce the latest platforms, technologies and tools, including iOS 17.
The weeklong event will kick off June 5 at Apple Park located in Cupertino, California, beginning with a keynote address, followed by State of the Union in the afternoon, and the Apple Design Awards in the evening. It will be held both online and in-person.
The event also offers developers the chance to learn about the latest technologies, tools, and frameworks coming to Apple devices, and the chance to speak with experts, engineers and designers.
“WWDC is one of our favorite times of the year at Apple because it’s an opportunity to connect with the talented developers from around the globe who make this community so extraordinary,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations.
What will be announced at WWDC 23?
According to Bloomberg, Apple will debut a mixed-reality headset, a new 15-inch MacBook Air, and a new operating system iOS 17, which will feature a journaling app, and a return to widgets for the Apple Watch.
Apple typically unveils the latest version of iOS ahead of the launch of a new iPhone in September.

The anticipated VR headset
Apple boasts to have the world's largest augmented reality platform with a number of apps available in their App Store. So it makes sense for them to finally launch a mixed-reality headset, first of its kind for Apple, Bloomberg reported. The headset will be used for communication, video, wellness activities, gaming, and will cost $3,000. Apple won't start selling the headset for at least a couple of months, and may launch it between December and early 2024.
