Apple WWDC 2023 Kickstarts On This Date: iOS 17, Mixed Reality Headsets, New MacBook Models Expected In Keynote

Live streaming

The World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is Apple’s biggest event of the year.

It will be live streamed across different platforms, including the Apple YouTube page and the Apple TV app.

Read on to learn more about the details and all you can expect this year.

WWDC 2023 keynote

As mentioned, the WWDC 2023 keynote will reveal details regarding the new iOS 17 version, watchOS 11 version and the new macOS version among others.

Of late Apple has also brought hardware products to the keynote.

This year the mixed reality headset going by the event teaser seems likely.

A new MacBook Air model may also be teased, with reports suggesting a new 15-inch model.

The keynote will be live on Apple TV, Apple YouTube page and Apple Events page on Monday, June 5 at 10:30 PM IST.

Developer-centric events

WWDC also gives developers a platform so that they can build new applications for Apple products.

The Platforms State of Union will be part of the conference in which developers can get access to the new tools and features that Apple will introduce for its products.

On the same day, Apple will have the Design Awards where the developers are rewarded for their effort and technical expertise.

Mixed-reality headset

This year, Apple is coming up with a mixed-reality headset (which, as is typical, Apple has not publicly acknowledged).

This could be the most significant news at WWDC this year and could most likely be unveiled to the developers first before making the product available to consumers.

New hardware era

The headset could not only blur the lines between Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented reality (AR), but it would mark the start of a new hardware era for Apple. 

It is rumored to be called Reality Pro and will offer both VR and AR experiences.

According to Bloomberg, the headset could cost $3,000 and will reportedly be powered via a new magnetic connector attached to a MagSafe-style external battery pack.

Other highlights

Apple could also announce a new 15-inch MacBook Air.

This would naturally have a larger 15-inch display and also retain the same M2 chip as the 13-inch Air.

A bigger MacBook Air might complement the existing 13-inch MacBook Air model, according to some experts and insiders.
