The inaugural WWDC22 keynote will take place on June 6, and unsurprisingly, this will be Apple’s opportunity to reveal to developers and the rest of the world what its future operating systems will look like. In his Sunday newsletter, Mark Gurman gives some details on iOS 16 (codename “Sydney”), watchOS 9 (“Kincaid”), macOS 13 (“Rome”) and tvOS 16 (“Paris”).
On the iOS side, we can expect significant improvements for notifications, which had already received with iOS 15 regular summary functions during the day as well as Concentration mode. iOS 16 will also be the subject of new health monitoring functions. On the other hand, no change planned for the interface.
iPadOS 16 would benefit from a new multitasking interface, which had however been redesigned with the previous version. Obviously, that wasn’t enough. This rumor also recalls the floating windows heard in March.

Finally, watchOS 9 would offer major improvements for activity and health monitoring. Hallway noises may tell us more by June 6…
Gurman writes that iOS 16 should incorporate many references to rOS, the augmented reality headset operating system that Apple has been developing for years. Originally, this product should have been unveiled during the world conference of developers, but finally the event would take place rather at the end of the year, or even next year.

Apple’s AR device would be launched during the iOS 16 cycle anyway, assures the snoop of Bloomberg. Maybe the manufacturer will want to raise the sauce by then, why not with a preview of rOS to bait the developers.
Still in terms of hardware, WWDC22 could be the time for the presentation of two new Macs, one of which will probably be the MacBook Air. New Mac minis (M1 Pro?) and 24-inch iMacs are also in the works, as is a refresh of the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
