Those who prefer the big screen experience are also in for luck as the event can also be watched live on the Apple TVs. However, that applies to only the 2nd and 3rd gen Apple TVs running tvOS version 6.2 or later. Things are a lot simpler with the 4th gen TV that qualifies for the event right away.
As we have already reported, the new iOS 10 is much-anticipated during the event. Additionally, the biggest change here could be a revamped Apple Music and Apple News apps. Apart from these developments, the OS itself might undergo a few tweaks to make it look and feel pleasing to its users.
Another significant announcement expected at the event could be the launch of the Siri SDK, which will enable developers to integrate the Apple’s digital assistant into more apps or services. It will lead to a far bigger role for the assistant that so far was localized to only the iOS platform. However, Siri is also expected to debut on the Mac platform.
There’s a rumor that Apple might contemplate renaming its operating system from OS X to simply MacOS. There could also be updates announced for the tvOS and watchOS. However, there aren’t any hardware launches expected except iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
