The WWDC 2020 keynote starts on June 22 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Several reports hint that the company will be ditching Intel in favour of its own chipset.

Last year, Apple announced iPadOS, a special version of iOS made for iPads.

The survey was carried out by Apple through the App Store and was communicated through the portal dedicated to developers where it periodically provides the percentages on the installations, to allow them to develop apps for the most used operating systems.

Apple's iOS 13 update was released alongside the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro updates in September 2019.

For iPadOS 13 the percentage is even higher and it is present on 93% of the tablets presented in the last four years. We have to agree that Apple has the flawless marriage here by having full control over its hardware and software with iOS.

The first ARM-based Macs are speculated to launch in late 2020 or early 2021, so an announcement next week would make sense if that's indeed Apple's timeline. Now, the company might let users pin widgets wherever they want. Safari may automatically translate websites in other languages, much like Chrome does now.

SoftwareThe core of WWDC, Apple, will preview its new software updates, and unveil iOS 14, iPadOS 14, tvOS 14, watchOS 7, and macOS 10.16, aside from showcasing its new development tools. Apple could reveal some hardware, possibly a new iMac.

iPad multitasking features may also feature in the new iOS14. Rumours and speculations claim that watchOS 7 will bring support for detecting and monitoring blood oxygen level as well as sleep monitoring system. A possible change in the default apps is also expected.

As mentioned before, software will be one of the key highlights of the WWDC 2020 keynote.

Rumour has it that an iMac 2020 model will be announced at this year's WWDC, featuring thin bezels and the design language of iPad Pro. While other software under the Apple umbrella have the product name in it, iOS remains the only software to not follow that format.

"WWDC20 will be our biggest yet, bringing together our global developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented way for a week in June to learn about the future of Apple platforms", Phil Schiller, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Apple said.
The new name is expected to fall in line with the rest of the nomenclature of operating systems under Apple. iOS might soon be changed to iPhoneOS. Apple, in its presentations, may reveal the benefits and changes macOS developers would get on ARM-based Mac machines.
