What to Expect From Apple WWDC 2023
We don't know everything that Apple will announce at WWDC this year, but there have been enough leaks and rumors to make some educated guesses. The biggest news is likely to be Apple's mixed reality headset, which has been heavily leaked online. And if this year is anything like WWDC 2022, we will likely get more info on new developments in Apple's operating systems.
An Apple VR/AR Headset
It's possible that Apple won't announce its new mixed reality headset at WWDC 2023, but there have been enough leaks at this point that everyone is expecting it. According to the latest leak, the headset will supposedly include 5,000 nits of brightness, which is comparable to some of the best 4K TVs.

We don't yet know how much the Apple headset will cost, but we know it won't be cheap. Rumors place the price point somewhere around $3,000. That's twice the price of the Meta Quest Pro, which originally launched at $1,500 before dropping down under $1,000 later in the year.
A New 15-inch Macbook Air
Beyond the headset, rumors also suggest that Apple will be launching a larger 15-inch Macbook Air. These rumors come from a report by Mark Gurman suggesting that Apple has multiple MacBooks in the works. According to the same report, the 15-inch MacBook Air will likely come packing Apple's M2 chip and feature a similar screen to the 14-inch MacBook Pro.
Gurman also reported that Apple will start accepting trade-ins on the Mac Studio and 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro on the same day as WWDC, which would suggest more than just a new MacBook Air.
iOS 17 Reveal and Updates
Considering WWDC is an event for developers, we are also expecting to see the official reveal of new Apple software. This will likely include official reveals of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, MacOS 14, and WatchOS 10.
As for what those software updates will include, we don't yet know everything for sure. Rumors suggest we will see a host of quality-of-life improvements and updates to the Dynamic Island on newer iPhone models. It's unclear if Apple will be introducing anything related to AI, as we saw at Google I/O earlier this year.
