‘Really excited for incredible WWDC’, Tim Cook tweets hours before annual dev conference
WWDC 2020: Apple will host its annual developers conference tonight.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is gearing up for the company's first big event of the year later today. Cook will deliver the opening keynote at what will be the company's first-ever virtual developer conference.
Hours before the WWDC 2020, Cook tweeted an Apple Animoji saying, “Hello developers! I am really excited for an incredible WWDC. See you all online very soon.”
During his keynote, Tim Cook is also expected to address diversity and racial discrimination. Cook and Apple are among the top tech executives who have been quite vocal on the matter.
Apple's WWDC 2020 is going to feature a slew of important announcements including the launch iOS 14 preview, new iPadOS, watchOS update, and lots more. The company is also rumoured to introduce a new hardware tonight, most likely a new iMac with upgraded specifications and design.
One of the biggest announcements expected at the WWDC 2020 is going to be the ARM-based devices. The move will mark Apple's split from Intel which has been its partner for almost 15 years. Apple could announce one laptop model and one desktop model that will use the new chip.
Apple's conference for developers comes at a time when voices against the company's app store policies have grown louder. The developers have sought Apple to slash its cut from the in-app purchases. Apple levies 5% to 30% cut of the sales developers make through the App Store, which is one of the biggest mobile app stores in the world.
