WWDC: Up next — What to expect in iOS 12

Apple’s WWDC developer conference takes place next month. Here’s a quick run-down of the latest speculation surrounding iOS 12 — the next iPhone, iPad OS upgrade.

When stable gets sexy

Whispers earlier this year claimed Apple plans to focus on stability in the release. If that’s true, it means we shouldn’t expect too much in the way of all-new features but can expect some enhancements, alongside battery, performance, and security enhancements.

I’m predicting battery, performance, and stability enhancements because the latest claim is that iOS 12 will be compatible with the 5-year-old iPhone 5s. I’m not particularly convinced by that claim or the source. However, any move to support the OS on older devices strongly suggests overall performance and stability tweaks that will be of even more benefit when using more recent iPhone models.

iOS for Macs

Apple CEO Tim Cook has refuted speculation that the company intends to merge its iOS and macOS systems.
