Apple WWDC 2018: What to expect, livestream and more

As per the rumours, it is also expected to add Siri support for the email and navigation to HomePod. It could be the same small form factor as the iPhone SE, but with an "all-display" front and Face ID technology found in the iPhone X. It will be interesting if an iPhone SE 2 is launched. The new version will be more stable with performance improvements, revamped iBooks experience, a handful of health and parental control features and a tracker to help cut down time spend on a phone.

We'll have a hands-on with Measure later today to showcase how it works.

Mark Gurman, one of the industry's most respected Apple insiders, reported on Bloomberg that Apple will reveal a "Digital Health" feature for iOS 12 today. All of those predictions fall in line with the previous speculation that Apple is planning to use WWDC to introduce new versions of its software platforms, which focus on stability and overall enhancements rather than wild new features and the introduction of more chaos.

Last year, the customers of Apple experienced many serious issues in its devices.

According to Apple engineers working on the new addition, the tools will be placed in a menu accessible through the Settings app.

Apple's World Wide Developer Conference kicks off next week, but reports claim that those hoping to see some new hardware at the event will be disappointed.

Notably, the trend in Apple's share price is positive this year, which increased 1.8% to close at $190.24, near its 52-week range on Jun 1.

Currently, Apple carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

Zacks has just released a Special Report on the booming investment opportunities of legal marijuana. If you have been looking forward to it, here's when the event will start.
