All the news from WWDC 2023: Apple Vision Pro, iOS 17 and MacBook Air

The famous tech company's Worldwide Developers Conference took place on Monday and featured many surprises that seem straight out of the future.

Few events have generated as much anticipation and buzz as Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2023). Held Monday, it presented some of the new products that the company will be launching in the coming months and surprised everyone with virtual reality glasses, iOS 17 and many other fascinating gadgets.

Apple Vision Pro

The biggest news was Apple Vision Pro, Apple's new virtual reality glasses. They will go on sale in 2024 and will be priced at $3,499.

Unlike their competition, they chose to integrate the glasses into reality rather than trying to recreate it, thus allowing adaptation to different environments in a more organic way. In addition, it is designed to work differently for different uses.

One of its most striking features is that it adapts at all times to one's environment while using the glasses. They allow users to consume multimedia content in different applications and also to navigate in Safari with a completely adapted interface, capable of simulating a movie theater.

In Tim Cook's words, it is the first operating system that, instead of looking "towards," allows us to look "through." This software, which can be controlled with hand gestures and is capable of recording panoramic videos, was named visionOS and is compatible with iOS and iPad applications.

iOS 17

The new operating system was another highlight of WWDC 2023. Among its improvements are receiving calls, which will have personalized screens for different contacts, with the possibility of choosing a photograph, emojis and name with a personalized font.

In another technological leap, it will be possible to make real-time transcripts of conversations.

The interface will not change much with respect to iOS 16, so it will be quite intuitive when handling the device, although the photo application will feature significant improvements, such as allowing you to convert photos into stickers and add stickers to our own photos.

One of the most anticipated improvements has to do with the keyboard. Now, corrections will be more accurate, adding real-time suggestions for words that could replace others in the sentence.

As for AirDrop, iOS 17 will introduce NameDrop, through which addresses, contacts and other data can be shared. Another new feature is Journal, an intelligent application that selects music, podcasts and various entertainment that might be of interest to users. Apple promises that the data will be protected and that not even the company will be able to access it.
