Apple has numerous announcements planned for its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

As rumored, Gurman believes that Apple's mixed reality headset will be the star of the show; however, the company will also unveil new MacBooks and new software updates for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Altogether, the company is planning to unveil:

● the Reality headset, the first major new Apple product category in nearly a decade
● a new xrOS operating system and software development kit
● new MacBooks
● iOS 17
● iPadOS 17
● macOS 14
● a major watchOS 10 update

Changes to iOS, iPadOS, macOS and tvOS are expected to be minor. However, watchOS 10 will allegedly get a bigger enhancements including an updated interface.

In regards to the Reality headset, Apple is reportedly preparing a clear story for how developers will want to use it. Much of the weeklong conference will be used to showcase the headset's App Store and accompanying tools. It will likely go on sale several months after its unveiling, in time for the holidays.

Reiterating his previous reports, Gurman says Apple is working on a 15-inch MacBook Air, an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, an entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, a refreshed 24-inch iMac, the first Mac Pro with in-house chips, and updated high-end MacBook Pro models. He expects all of these to go on sale this year or early next year. While Apple has two Mac Studio follow-ups under development, the timing on these is unclear.

Although some new MacBooks will get announced at WWDC, it's believed these models won't have new M3 chips and will use something similar to the currently available M2 processor.

Finally, Apple's software updates are said to lay the groundwork for future devices. For example, iPadOS 17 will prepare for OLED displays coming next year, iOS 17 will prepare for sideloading of apps next year, and watchOS will reveal much about the next generation Apple Watch.
