Apple WWDC 2016 keynote liveblog (iOS 10, WatchOS 2 and more)


Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC, pronounced as 'dub dub dc' by all the cool kids) kicks off with a keynote featuring Apple's superstar executive team on Monday, June 13th at 1PM ET / 10AM PT.

WWDC 2016 will take place at a much larger venue than the usual Moscone West site, as this year Apple has opted to host it at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

What can we expect? Here are the main topics of discussion and the ones that are not likely to happen:

  • New iOS 10 to be unveiled
  • But no new iOS devices (no iPhones or iPads) expected
  • WatchOS 2 with more independance to be unveiled
  • But no new Apple Watch hardware
  • New Siri functionality
  • New Apple Music features
Of course, this being Apple, you can always expect a surprise, or two. That's why we recommend you to tune in our live blog to see what happens.

Kudos to Cook for his words about the Orlando tragedy.

SOS is a good feature add to the watch.

There is nothing really new or will be:( Apple is about something big but it will not be phones or gadgets,they effort in 90% goes on the car project!

iOS 10 is looking awesome at the moment! Please, a file manager!

Don't see that coming. Watching the stream now and as a iPhone and iPad owner, its very disappointing. I am sitting on my upgrade to go with the 6S Plus replacement or Note 6.

That was underwhelming. iOS 10 looks a complete mess, and there's no dark mode or anything which feels like a new feature. Woo for coding.. on a touch screen... sounds like heaven... What a pointless keynote. Send out an e-mail next time please, Tim.

I also like the Swift Playground announcement. That's a great idea.
