The event will kick off at 10:00 PM, Pakistani time.

If a new MacBook is announced, it's likely to be more powerful with a new processor and other performance upgrades. Reports have suggested that Apple will not launch any new hardware at the event. Moreover, Alibaba (BABA - Free Report) and Xiaomi are notable competitors in this space due to strong demand for their products in China. Will virtual assistant Siri be able to catch up with archrivals Assistant from Google and Alexa from Amazon? And, of course, the latest macOS, tvOS, and watchOS updates will be unveiled. Further, it is expected that iPhone SE 2 will be launched during the event.

But like anything else in Apple's world, this is all speculation based on rumors and comments from a slew of unidentified sources who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans.

If you can't watch along live, we have a live blog showing you exactly what Apple is announcing as soon as it happens.

You can expect a lot of talk about Siri, privacy, security, stability, and augmented reality, though. Then last month, it added new software tools to allow Android users to set time limits for apps and make the screen automatically turn grey when they're ready for bed.

Even though such a presentation is considered improbable by some, a few Apple fans expect more details regarding a future iPad Pro created in the iPhone X style, with thin edges and very large display with a notch.

That's not to mean it won't bundle any new features, though.

Apple is expected to debut tools to help people stare at their phones less, and their loved ones and sunsets more.

Per data from Nasdaq (as of June 2017), Apple's share price dropped nine out of 10 times in early June, over the 2007 to 2017 period, (except 2014).

Nonetheless, the stock recovered eventually and returned nearly 845.7% during the same 10-year period, significantly outperforming S&P 500's gain of 62.8%.

As for iPad, Apple could unveil new devices with the firm's latest A11 processor, already used in the firm's latest iPhone handsets.

WWDC runs June 4-8, 2018, in San José, USA. The screenshots also suggest the addition of a dedicated news application to the platform. Users with old Apple TVs can simply turn on their devices.
