Apple has just announced the dates for its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024. WWDC will take place from June 10 through June 14, 2024. A special event will be held at Apple Park in Cupertino, California, on June 10, and we expect to see the reveal of iOS 18, iPadOS 18, watchOS 11, tvOS 18, macOS 15, and visionOS 2.

WWDC will be free for all developers online. Developers will be able to access a variety of online sessions and labs that will showcase the latest advancements in software across all of Apple’s hardware.

The keynote should also be available for anyone to watch online through a livestream on the Apple Developer app, Apple’s website, and Apple’s YouTube channel. Apple will also be sharing videos and information throughout the week.

Though WWDC 2024 can be enjoyed online, Apple will also hold a special in-person event for developers and students, but space is limited. For a chance to attend, you’ll have to apply via Apple’s lottery system (information is available on the Apple Developer site). Those who are selected to attend will be able to watch the event in person, meet Apple team members, and participate in special activities like the State of the Union presentation and Apple Design Awards.

Normally, Apple holds its Swift Student Challenge once the WWDC dates are revealed, but this year, Apple did the challenge early. The winners for the Swift Student Challenge will be revealed this week, on March 28. The winners of the challenge will be able to attend the special event at Apple Park, and 50 Distinguished Winners will receive an invitation to Cupertino for a three-day experience.

More information about WWDC 2024 will be shared with developers through the Apple Developer app and website.

The iPhone 15 lineup — which includes the standard iPhone 15 and the iPhone 15 Pro — is the iPhone at its best. It's the latest series of iPhones available today and the default choice if you're buying a new iPhone in 2024.

But it’s not the only choice of iPhones you can purchase. In fact, Apple still sells the iPhone 14, iPhone 13, and the iPhone SE on its website. You could also find other iPhone models available – refurbished or new — from other retailers or carrier stores.

Apple’s new iPad Pro and iPad Air just got delayed

It seems like the countdown to the next iPad reveal has been stretched out a bit more, though not by an earth-shattering amount of time. So far, we’ve heard rumors of a late March or early April reveal, but that likely won’t happen, according to a new report from Apple insider Mark Gurman.

In his latest Bloomberg report, Gurman says the next Apple tablets should arrive in early May, and he cited the speeding up of production at Apple’s suppliers. Interestingly, production-related challenges apparently pushed back the launch of the new slates across the Pro and Air lineups.

We now know when Apple is adding RCS to the iPhone
The iPhone 14 Plus held in a man's hand.

Last November, Apple made a surprise announcement when it confirmed that RCS was coming to the iPhone in 2024. It's something iPhone and Android phone users alike have been waiting years for, but there was just one small problem: Apple never said when in 2024 RCS was coming. Thanks to Google, of all companies, we now have a better idea of when RCS is heading to the iPhone.

As spotted by 9to5Google, the Android website was recently updated with a new page dedicated to Google Messages. If you click on the "See more features" button for the section talking about RCS, there's a section titled "Better messaging for all" with the following text: "Apple has announced it will be adopting RCS in the fall of 2024. Once that happens, it will mean a better messaging experience for everyone."
