Apple last week revealed the dates it will hold the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year. And for someone who has been following this conference for years, it won’t be rocket science to guess that it will be announced. At WWDC, we mainly see Apple introducing new OS versions for different platforms. This year, we should get our first look at iOS 15, tvOS 14, watchOS 8, iPadOS 15, and macOS 12. But new operating systems aren’t the only announcements at WWDC. This time, new announcements related to hardware and chipsets are also expected. So here is a short list of those.
AirTags are probably the longest rumored Apple products that have yet to see the light of day. These Bluetooth beacons were supposed to arrive last month, but it never happened. A lot has been leaked about Apple’s AirTags, including how it works based on the UWB (Ultra Wide Band) and U1 chipsets and the circular design with the size of a bottle cap. We may see this happen at WWDC 2021.
The redesigned iMacs have also been the subject of leaks and rumors recently. Considering the fact that two new iMac models were found in the latest beta of macOS and tipsters have also mentioned that new iMacs are coming soon, WWDC might just be a conference where Apple plans to present it to the world. . The company recently ditched a few basic iMac models.
