Apple to debut phone-to-phone augmented reality

The updated operating system might also get a new Digital Health initiative, a bunch of notification management options, ARKit 2.0 with multiplayer features, and cross-platform apps with macOS.

Typically, when Apple upgrades its operating system that powers its devices such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Tv and Apple Watch it focuses on to make people closer to its latest apps and games. Think about it: Do technology companies really want us to spend less time online? Former Facebook president Sean Parker stated Facebook's design exploited weakness in the human psyche to addict users, and said he anxious about what it was doing to kids' brains.

Now the industry giants are putting some of these principles into practice.

Apple also may introduce new ways to help people manage their health and assist apps in the use of augmented reality - the blending of digital images and information with a physical setting through the camera. A new Mac is also a possibility, though not considered likely.

Apple is finally delivering on some promises it made past year about its HomePod speaker, including giving the device the ability to link with another for stereo sound.

"Last year at WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every category on the App Store have embraced inventive ways to engage customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world". A lot of Apple fans weren't happy that the device's new Super Retina HD display comes with a glaring compromise that sticks out like a sore thumb right at the top of the screen.


Writing for Bloomberg, he says "a new suite of gadgets is unlikely" because the MacBooks aren't ready and an iPad Pro with Face ID will also come later. Suffice it to say, WWDC 2018 appears to be a software-centric affair as the company will likely not introduce any new iPads or MacBook updates.

HomePod Apple is not coming slow!

But that device was delayed and generally met with lackluster reviews if you were looking for a capable digital assistant on par with Amazon's Echo and Google's Home products.

Rumors suggest that Apple's plans for iOS 12 will make this refresh a bump, not a jump, a fine-tuning that fixes past problems and buffs up the quality of day-to-day use.

This isn't the first time we've seen an iPhone SE 2 depicted with a notch. iPhone case maker Olixar claimed earlier this month that the iPhone SE 2 will feature an iPhone X-like design. More significant changes will take time.
