Apple in the Enterprise: A Strategic Guide

Once a pariah in the enterprise, Apple has quietly emerged as a darling of executives and professionals because of the ease of use of the iPhone and the iPad. We look at how the influx of Apple devices is changing the tech landscape in business.

This year's conference was moved from San Francisco, Calif., to a location closer to Apple's campus to make it easier for Apple employees and engineers to attend and spend time with developers. In total, the conference will run from June 5 to June 9.

Apple has traditionally used the event to unveil the next version of the company's operating systems. This year we should see iOS 11, macOS 12.13, watchOS 4, and an improved tvOS.

Bloomberg previously reported iOS 11 would receive a refreshed user interface for the first time since 2013.

Beyond new software updates and enhancements, recent reports have tipped WWDC as the stage where Apple will announce its Amazon Echo competitor. The Siri speaker, for lack of a better, will give users the ability to interact with the company's digital assistant, possibly with a built-in camera.

Occasionally Apple has also used the WWDC stage to announce minor updates and refreshes to hardware products. Currently, the iPad Pro line is overdue for an update, for instance.
