Apple has confirmed that it will hold a keynote to open its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at 10am Pacific Time (6pm UK) on 4th June.
The news comes via official invites, which have been sent out to media in advance of the annual gathering.
iOS 12 for iPhones: everything we know so far.
Apple is widely expected to show off its plans for iOS 12, with back end improvements to security and stability and group FaceTime chats rumoured for inclusion.
The California-based company was said to be plotting an overhaul of iOS’s homescreen and other major upgrades, but these are now thought to have been pushed back until 2019.
This is thought to be down to a series of failures with iOS security and headline–grabbing issues such as the iPhone’s excessive battery drain.
New iPad Pro models could also be unveiled at WWDC, with some Apple-watchers also claiming Tim Cook and co will use the event to reveal its heavily tipped iPhone SE 2.
The latter has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, with reports suggesting it could feature an iPhone X–style notch and wireless charging.
