WWDC 2023 ended at this time, and Apple has already moved on from iOS 17

WWDC often focuses on software program updates, however this was a wierd yr for Apple. Alongside iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS Sonoma, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17, not solely did Apple unveil three new Macs, nevertheless it additionally revealed the “way forward for spatial computing” with the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional and the visionOS working system.

Apple reserved 46 minutes for discussing Imaginative and prescient Professional throughout the WWDC, quarter-hour for brand spanking new Macs, and an hour for all 5 different working system updates. That solely reveals how little have been these software program updates, despite the fact that there was a factor or two value noticing with iOS 17 and watchOS 10.

In January, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman already reported that this is able to be a weak yr for software program updates as Apple was placing all its efforts into the Imaginative and prescient Professional announcement. Nonetheless, because the WWDC 2023 formally ended at this time, the corporate has already up to date its web site with solely {hardware} on the entrance web page and no point out of upcoming techniques.

This modification was noticed by designer Parker Ortolani on Twitter. Though iOS 17 will land method earlier than the Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional, which is anticipated to hit the US by “early 2024,” Apple has most popular to highlight this product, alongside new Macs and iPhone 14 Professional fashions, reasonably than the brand new working system updates.

Curiously sufficient, Apple is spotlighting the 15-inch MacBook Air alongside beforehand introduced {hardware} in all different international locations.

Whereas it’s comprehensible that software program bulletins don’t keep for longer on Apple’s fundamental webpage, it’s value noting that the corporate plans to maintain momentum by sustaining the Imaginative and prescient Professional because the headliner of the US retailer because the Cupertino agency expects this product to be its subsequent smartest thing.

That stated, WWDC 2023 is lastly wrapping up, registered builders are already making an attempt iOS 17 and the opposite working techniques, and we’re nonetheless left with a number of questions relating to Apple Imaginative and prescient Professional – which I assume will take a very long time till we hear extra about them.
