iOS 16, WatchOS 9 To Get “Major Upgrades” At WWDC 2022, Gurman

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, iOS 16 and watchOS 9 will get “major upgrades” at the WWDC 2022 event. He made the statement while predicting some upgrades to expect at the event scheduled for June 6.

For iOS 16, Gurman expects some “fairly significant enhancement across the board, including an update to notifications and new health-tracking features.” Gurman is also not expecting a significant redesign of the iOS interface.

For iPadOS, Gurman expects a likely new iPadOS multitasking interface. This is because iPadOS 15 made it difficult for users to use multitasking capabilities.

According to Gurman, Apple Watch “may get major upgrades to activity and health tracking.”

Apart from the OS upgrades, Gurman states that Apple is unlikely to announce anything about its Mixed Reality headset.

“As far as I know, a full-blown introduction of the mixed-reality headset is still probably out of the question in June, but I am told that beta versions of iOS 16—codenamed Sydney—are chock-full of references to the headset and its interactions with the iPhone,” Gurman explained in his Power On newsletter.
