    Are you excited for Apple WWDC 2018 ?

    One of the most exciting dates in the Apple calendar is WWDC -short for WorldWide Developer Conference- which is a week-long summer event for software developers. But it's also the venue where Apple make some of their biggest announcements of the year for the Mac OS. 
     

    When will WWDC 2018 take place?

    WWDC will be held from 4-8 June 2018, in San Jose. The venue is the McEnery Convention Center.

     

    Expected Announcements ?

    As usual, Apple will announce updates to their software platforms like iOS (v12), macOS (v10.14), watchOS (v5) and tvOS (v12) which will all get stage time during the keynote with details like new features.
     

    Software & services:

    With regards to new features, whilst Apple seem focused on security and stability this time, one of the most exciting changes that we are expecting is MacOS being able to run iOS apps. So I am really excited about this, and cannot wait to see how the apps will scale.

     

    Hardware

    Even though this is a software event, but history has shown that we can expect hardware announcements too, and so we're hoping to hear some more details about the upcoming Mac Pro update, but so far it's not yet been confirmed if it will be launched this year or in 2019. Apple's also said it will launch a new screen to go with the Mac Pro, so expect to see more about this at WWDC.

     

    We're also hearing rumours that Apple will launch a new 13inch MacBook at the event. The surprising aspect to this rumour is that it's said that this updated MacBook will come in at the equivalent price of the MacBook Air - in fact, the idea is that this new Mac laptop will be a MacBook Air with a Retina display. Read more about the new MacBook Air rumours here.

     

    We also think that Apple could reveal an update to the MacBook Pro, and maybe also a 2018 MacBook at the event. There may even be a new Mac mini coming. We are particularly excited that the new MacBook Pro could ship with 6 cores!

     

    A Chinese site - without much of a track record in this area, so take this with a pinch of salt - thinks we'll get a new iPhone SE. That would be a surprise but isn't completely unprecedented: the iPhones 3G, 3GS and 4 all debuted at WWDC keynotes. Actually, we think a iPhone SE2 might be in the works - but we think we will actually see it sooner than WWDC.

     

    There is also the expectation that Apple will unveil a new iPad Pro with Face ID and a bigger screen (made possible by reduced bezels and the removal of the Home button) this June.

    MacBook Air based on ARM architecture! Or at least the announcement for it, due for release with Xmas? Counting down the days ...

    well at least macOS 10.14 will not be a merger of IOS and MacOS. (but the apps will be cross compatible) so we won't have to jailbreak our hacks.

    I just wonder what cpu architecture will become obsolete on the new os.

    I am rooting for the Dell D630 Nvidia to make it unscathed :) but highly unlikely.

    Still those old core 2 CPU's work in recent OS X versions very well ? Yep, it might not be a merger and might take a while, but we get the taste of some of iOS apps.

    I hope to see a new redesign of macOS, maybe some improvements at the theme, and a better performance behind the curtains.

    @AllanMaybe it (redesign) will happen in 10.15

    Apple is not doing much with macOS, sadly. iOS is all they focus on and iOS 11 still sucks on my iPhone.

    • Greetings...Acquired an HP Z1 (Xeon E3-1245/Quadro 1000m) and have installed Sierra 10.12.6 via Clover method. Presently I’m only able to boot to a display w/ nv_disable=1, and have installed the Nvidia web driver. I’ve tried a number of Clover parameters including “inject Nvidia” and “nvda_drv=1, both instances rendering a black screen. . I’ve tried a few different Smbios profiles but am afraid I’m shooting in the dark. Is EDID input required for this GPU, as I have heard that some users have gotten it to work with Sierra. Thanks. 
    • This is screenshot, now i have sound but lose microphone. Have my laptop the bluetooth and thunderbolt 3? debug_27207.zip
    • ok @EMlyDinEsH, I'll waiting
      thank you very much
    • That just mean the pci.ids in the DCPIManager app is out of date. Mainly cosmetics, nothing more. If audio is working already, you are good to go.
    • Mr Jake Lo   Audio already worked in my laptop but i see unkown in dcpimanager
    • (Unkown Codec) in dcpimanager does not necessarily mean audio is not working as it shows the same on most of my Hacks. Stick with layout-id 28 as it's supported for Lenovo Legion Y520 by vusun123, similar to yours. Have you tested audio, make sure to enable 'Play feedback when volume is changed" in Sound preference if you're testing audio that way.
    • Dear Jake Lo ;   Regarding issues    Audio ; tried to inject config.plist bylayout (3, 11, 28 ) Still (Unkown Codec) in dcpimanager   Black Screen : i will read carefully tutorial for blank screen and will try
