I know this is trite in 2021, but I had to look back and see what happened last year. In February, MWC and Facebook’s F8 conference were cancelled and I began wondering if WWDC would go ahead as planned. With a full pandemic year behind us, my naïvety feels quaint.
Unsurprisingly, this year’s conference will also be online-only and it will still be free. This will not be Apple’s first product announcement this year — there is some new hardware coming next month — but the software side is often more exciting because it means new capabilities for your existing stuff. I’m looking forward to seeing what is new across the board but, in particular, in iOS 15 and MacOS 12.
