It’s a function that Google’s Android Q is also likely to pack, meaning Apple can’t be seen to be left behind.
Elsewhere, the lock screen is expected to be more dynamic, mimicking Android’s richer features and allowing users to access the likes of Health and Music straight from the first screen they see when they pick up their device.
There's also talk of having the ability to lock specific apps behind Face ID, as well as split screen view and picture–in–picture mode.
iPhone 11 plans laid bare
While Apple hasn’t revealed a new iPhone in June for the best part of a decade, it’s likely to drop some broad hints about the iPhone 11 at WWDC.
Not least because the iPhone XS has failed to live up to expectations and it needs to build hype ahead of its September iPhone launch.
Base code for iOS 13 should reveal plenty of secrets, with screen sizes and camera plans laid bare.
Recent rumours suggest the iPhone 11 Max will have a much–needed triple lens camera, while the successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XR will stay the same size but pack improved screens.
We don't have deals for iPhone 11 yet. But when we do, here's where you'll find our pick of the best iPhone 11 contracts.
AirPower at last
It’s been hinted at for months, but could WWDC finally see AirPower given a release date.
The wireless charging mat was first unveiled in September 2017, but has been held up due to rumoured issues with slow charging and overheating.
Apple could make a big play of faster wireless charging at WWDC, so what better place to finally name the date for its wireless charging product?
New AirPods have been in the offing for months. But analysts believe that any imminent update will focus only on the wireless charging case and support for Hey Siri activation that Apple has been touting since 2018.
AirPods 2 are likely to be a more complete update, with noise cancelling and improved audio tech, making them a must for AV nerds as well as the masses.
An accessory launch would sate the need for new hardware at WWDC too.
More news about Apple's TV streaming service
Apple is set to launch a rival to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video on 25th March. However, original content is likely to be slim or nonexistent when it rolls out.
WWDC is the perfect opportunity for Apple to show off exactly what it has planned for the autumn, when its own brand shows are expected to come online.
Throw in tweaks to Apple TV and this could wind up being a key focus of the 3rd June keynote.
