According to rumours, iOS 16 will introduce Always-On capabilities to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Max handsets.

iPad OS 16

Like iOS 16, iPadOS 16 is likely to include a redesigned lock screen and notification centre, as well as new Focus Mode features. Aside from that, iPadOS 16 is likely to include significant changes to windowing and multitasking functionality, bringing the tablet closer to laptops.

Macbook Air

In terms of laptops, Apple is anticipated to unveil a new MacBook Air at the event tonight. This new laptop will be powered by, you guessed it, an M2 chipset and will be available in space grey, silver, and gold colour options. It is also expected to include a MagSafe power connector and more Thunderbolt connections.

macOS 12

At WWDC 2022, Apple will also unveil a new macOS. macOS 12 Mammoth is likely to have a redesigned System Preferences section as well as the iPhone's Focus Mode functionality.

M2 chipset

On the hardware front, Apple is anticipated to release a new Apple Silicon chipset codenamed M2. While there isn't much information on what improvements M2 will bring over the company's M1 chipset, given that Apple issued changes to its M1 series chipsets a year and a half ago, an update is long overdue.
