Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2021 is only a handful of days away now and the trickle of rumors continues to flow in the lead up. Not a lot is yet known about the changes Apple will bring to its operating systems, including iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS 12 and watchOS 8. However, we do know that new hardware is likely and now new information from the Wall Street Journal is pointing to major upgrades for certain apps.

Chief among the apps to gain significant new functionality are the Safari browser, the Health app, Maps and iMessage. The latter has been getting significant teasers throughout Apple’s pre-event media hype with lots of iMessage-related imagery. According to the rumor mill, Apple is expected to bring more social media-related upgrades among the changes. Safari is expected to gain additional privacy features, which isn’t particularly surprising given Apple’s renewed privacy push of late.

The Maps app may not necessarily gain a lot of additional functionality, but its current features including indoor mapping, public transport information and cycling routes could be expanded to other markets. The Health app is thought to be picking up food tracking capabilities to help user’s stay on top of their daily intake as well as monitor calorie burn. Still not a lot of detail about the changes to the operating systems themselves, but we only have to wait till June 7 for everything to be officially revealed.

Buy the Apple Watch Series 6 44 mm from Amazon for just US$359, a saving of US$70.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
