Massive iPhone upgrade incoming – Apple confirms huge WWDC event in June

APPLE is preparing to unveil a massive upgrade for your iPhone.

News of the update will come this June, at Apple's annual WWDC event in California.

WWDC is Apple's yearly developer convention, where app makers gather in huge numbers.

Apple also uses the event to make major announcements about its products.

The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but last year marked the first time WWDC was virtual-only.

Apple's 2021 will also be virtual, due to the ongoing global pandemic.

There will still be a virtual keynote event, as well as educational sessions for app makers.

WWDC 2021 is set to run from June 7 to 11.

Anyone will be able to watch the keynote online – but this has been the case even in previous years.

App makers can get the full WWDC schedule by downloading the Apple Developer app.

It'll be updated with the latest session and speech info in June.

We still don't know exactly what Apple will be announcing in its keynote.

But we'd typically expect to see new versions of iOS, macOS and watchOS – the software that powers iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch.

These free updates bring new features to your current devices.

And they also give hints at what we might expect from future iPhones, which typically launch in September.

It's also possible that Apple could announce new gadgets.

"We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers," said Apple's Susan Prescott.

"We are working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet.

"And [we] are excited to offer Apple developers new tools to support them as they create apps that change the way we live, work, and play."

As part of the event, Apple is hosting a Swift Student Challenge in advance.

From now until April 18, students can submit challenges for the Swift Playground "learn to code" game.

And the winners will receive prizes, including exclusive WWDC memorabilia.
