Apple has sent out invites for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2019. As always, the invite holds key to some of the announcements that will happen at the event. WWDC 2019 is scheduled to take place at 10 am PT on June 3rd, in San Jose, California. Highlights of the event will be the upcoming iOS 13 and the all-new MacOS.
That apart, the WWDC invites hides some clues on what else might be revealed at the event. Last year Apple had been criticized for not catering to creative professionals, and this time around the Cupertino company seems to be making amends. This year Apple has sent out different invites. The invites include five illustrated drawings each of an Animoji character: monkey, robot, skull, alien and unicorn.
A new Mac Pro on the cards?
The invite features Animoji of a monkey with its skull exploding to reveal icons of the camera, musical notes and a paintbrush. Last year, Apple had stated that it was going to deliver a major update for the Mac Pro, that was slated to be released in 2019. In all likelihood, the picture of a monkey with creative icons coming out of its brain might be suggesting a new Mac Pro.
Blending the Apple OS’es together?
We have been hearing tales of how Apple wants to take its continuity feature to the next level. The WWDC invite features a caricature of a robot with an iOS calculator icon exploding from one end and a MacOS launchpad icon on the other. Perhaps this is hinting at a unified MacOS app development platform.
It would be awesome to see iOS apps being ported to MacOS. The rumour mills have been ripe about how Project Marzipan will blend the macOS and Apple OS together.
The invite also features a skull with joystick and bowling pin exploding from its head. Last year Apple had announced that it will feature more than 100 exclusive games developed by studios from across the world. The game arcade will be available on all Apple devices including iPhone, iPads, Macs and Apple TVs. It is also worth mentioning that Apple might be adding Apple Pencil support to more devices.
