They arranged this meeting outside the San Jose Convention Centre Venue and named it as WWDC or Dub-Dub.

What will Apple introduce? This is possibly the most exciting time of year for Apple fans and developers alike. But here are several announcements Apple could make, in our best-guess order of their likelihood.

A new message found in the latest iOS 10 beta update seems to indicate Apple will be killing off thousands of apps and games that haven't been updated to support 64-bit processors. The Feedback app has also spilled the beans on another feature, confirming that Drag and Drop will be coming to the iPad with iOS 11.

LeBron's triple-double not nearly enough for Cavaliers
The Warriors got double-digit scoring efforts from four of their five starters, as well as reserve point guard Shaun Livingston. Stuff that I can easily correct. "It got a little out of control toward the end, but we're not anxious about that", James said.

It isn't yet clear how much Apple will charge for its own smart speaker. Previous year it tried to make Messages young and hip. According to the AMA on Reddit, the Foxconninsider has revealed that the Apple smart glass uses a prism to convey an image to the lens with a resolution of 428×240 and the glasses also come fitted with a microphone for SIRI commands and an accelerometer as well. The company is reportedly working on a social-networking app to rival the likes of Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. In addition to releasing a special iPhone update later this year, a bigger than usual iOS update would also make sense. It would mean a lot to us. The WWDC is more focused on the software, but this time, some are saying that Apple might focus on new gadgets. Apple will also include the virtual surround sound technology to differentiate it from Google and Amazon. It will be an interesting thing to watch at the WWDC 2017. We'd expect to hear more about health and fitness, notifications and watch faces. Daryanani said Apple may also announce an iPad Pro with a faster processor in an attempt to revive its long-slumping tablet sales. Apple may also use the venue to officially announce that an Amazon Prime streaming app for Apple TV will be arriving. "We are amazed at all of the great new apps our developers create and can't wait to see them again next week at our Worldwide Developers' Conference", said Philip Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, in a statement.

Wish list: Breaking up the bloated iTunes app and a cleaner Apple Music experience. Its primary aim is to counter Google Home and Amazon Alexa. The design will be similar to a Mac Pro and will come with a modified A9 chip, the release for the speaker is expected to be in late 2017. It's probably too early.

Some sort of Siri speaker? A Siri-based app called Siri-Smart Speaker, in which its objective in life is to follow user's voice command for controlling appliances, locks, lights, and more. We will get to know more when the conference starts tomorrow morning. Part of the reason could be that there have been many leaks and speculative writings on this subject in recent days. It is something new from Apple.
