On Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. EDT), Apple will kick off its keynote presentation at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The company will certainly announce details about the next versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS and watchOS, but we can expect a lot more, including (possibly) new Apple Silicon Macs.

Here at Ars Technica, we will be live blogging the event as it begins and will post stories about the announcements as they are revealed.

It will be an interesting event. We know a lot less about iOS 15 than we did about iOS 14 before last year’s event, so there are bound to be some surprises.

And it’s worth noting that the event is halfway through Apple’s two-year roadmap to update its entire Mac lineup with Cupertino’s proprietary custom-designed silicon, replacing Intel. Leaks and reports indicate that Apple is working on a successor to the acclaimed M1 chip, intended for more expensive Macs such as the MacBook Pro or a replacement for the 27-inch iMac.

We’re not sure if the new chip and associated computers will be announced at this event, but it seems very likely. And there are other mysterious new developments as well: there are rumors of a possible homeOS announcement, whatever that entails, and new HomePods too.
