Apple WWDC 2018: all of the rumours from the iOS 12


The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018 takes place June 4–8 in San Jose, California.

Apple is expected to expected to make big news at WWDC 2018 with the launch of iOS 12.

Seeing the latest mobile operating system update for iPhone and iPad makes sense for WWDC – most attendees are software developers. But what we'll see out of it is suddenly a big mystery in 2018.


iOS 12 was due to see an intriguing home screen redesign and tweaks to core apps like Mail, Camera and Photos, but that’s said to have been shelved in favour of stability improvements. Apple was also said to be prepping a way to make both first- and third-party iOS 12 apps easier to port over to Mac computers. But that might delayed to iOS 13, too.

Yes, iOS 12 could be less exciting due to its security and performance focus, likely because of how many iOS 11 problems there have been. The latest is the frightening-sounding 'black dot' bug. It's a lot of bad PR for Apple going into WWDC.

Rumours indicate that iOS 12 will still have new features, including the continued push of Apple’s Augmented Reality (AR) ambitions and the still-surface-deep Health app. Parental controls will probably also be in the spotlight, especially after recent concerns over childhood phone addiction.

We think that Animoji might show up in more places in iOS 12, such as in FaceTime and on a new iPad Pro 2018. 

Then there are the more long-shot features: an always-on display for the iPhone X would be a great way to show off the OLED screen technology, grouped notifications replace the current chronological notification mess we have now, and we hope that Apple will offer the ability to change cameras settings directly in the camera app instead of having to dig through one phone settings menu after another.

Unfortunately, with security and performance taking the lead roles in iOS 12, we may see the company push the more exciting features to iOS 13, like a paid subscription to a premium version of Apple News, in 2019. At the very least, we're hoping that iOS 12 will improve the recently erratic keyboard autocorrect.
