Apple releases fifth beta for iOS 11.3

Apple releases fifth beta for iOS 11.3

Just a few hours ago, Apple has officially announced its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018 will start on 4 June until 8 June 2018. We are expected to see some new MacBooks and possibly new and refreshed iPads as well as future developments for the Home Pod, Apple's Siri enabled smart speaker. This year, Apple is likely to bring iOS 12 along with latest versions of macOS, tvOS and watchOS.

This year, Apple is rumored to update its iPad Pro lineup with an iPhone X-style design with narrower bezels, and even the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera that's used for FaceID and Animoji, according to a report from analyst Jun Zhang of Rosenblatt Securities obtained by Macworld. But, of course, WWDC is most notable to the public because it's one of two major events where Apple unveils new products and developments.

Apple chose its developer conference in June to announce new iPads in 2017, so it may well do something similar this year. Developers who are interested in attending would need to first register for the event and the registration process will be open until Thursday, March 22, at 10am PT.

Apple has confirmed the event will be live streamed via the WWDC app for iPhone and iPad as well as the Apple Events app for Apple TV. That's what a Bloomberg report into Apple's new processors claims (see more details below). Apple will select and update developers on their application status a day later on March 23 at 5 p.m.

Apple will also once again be offering WWDC Student Scholarships, providing eligible students with the a complimentary ticket and lodging at the conference.

Preview versions of the respective operating systems have traditionally become available to developers (and more recently the public) in the immediate aftermath of the event.
