Apple WWDC 2018 conference will start tonight at 10.30PM IST. Fortunately we don't have too long to wait, with the WWDC keynote taking place at 6pm next Monday.

The conference gives a peek into the new features that the various kinds of software bring with them and how they could change the whole experience of using your favourite Apple devices.

In any case, you are not compatible and you have first, second, or fourth generation Apple Tv you can watch the event at the Apple Events channel. Fans will also be able to watch the stream on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers as well (MSE, H.264, and AAC needed).

The biggest announcement during the WWDC 2018 is speculated to be the arrival of iOS 12.

Apple will showcase the latest version of watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 as well.

During Apple's WWDC keynote, we're expecting the company to announce iOS 12, which is tipped to feature more customization when compared to previous versions of iOS. It's interesting to hear that Apple might as well name its newest feature "Digital Health" services as it helps you track the time you spend on your apps.

Siri, Apple's voice assistant, is also likely to get some time in the spotlight - an important move after Google wowed (and frightened) the world with a demonstration last month of how well its voice assistant mimics human conversation. Monday's preview could include more on that front. This will let users monitor they usage of the iPhone, iPad, control time spent on an app. Apple iOS 12's Digital Feature will be in the settings app. Apple iOS 12 could also see a redesigned lockscreen with more detailed widgets supported.

This is yet another example of the two companies cribbing from each other. Apple has also introduced the ability to sync Messages across all the Apple devices.

Apple is expected to debut tools to help people stare at their phones less, and their loved ones and sunsets more. That uncertainty has not stopped people from posting sketchy images of screen protectors claiming it to be iPhone SE 2's.

Apple's new wireless charging mat AirPower, which was first announced alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X past year and has been slated for release in 2018, could also make an appearance.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who is consistently well-placed to make accurate Apple predictions, is suggesting that next week's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will have a heavy software focus and will not include any major hardware announcements.
