We will be on the ground at WWDC 2018 in San Jose, and if Apple is introducing any new hardware tomorrow, we will definitely be getting some hands on time with them.

Apple iOS 12 is expected to include an update NFC feature on iPhones, and will allow users to unlock doors, verify identity with the same.

CEO Tim Cook will take the stage in San Jose, California, on Monday at its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) to preview new software features for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Apple typically showcases the software updates it has planned for iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. If this sounds familiar, it should - Google is already doing that with Android P.

Given that WWDC is a developer conference, it's become nearly tradition for Apple to unveil a sneak preview of the next version of all of its major software updates.

Apple has been traditionally using the WWDC platform to unveil new iOS as well as improvements in its software and services offerings. The latest iOS update is expected to allow developers to use the integrated NFC chips on iPhones for more functions like unlocking a vehicle or switch on the security system inside your home.

Apple's focus on providing superior software is expected to sustain stickiness of its user-base irrespective of a particular device in the long haul. The company may launch a wireless charging pad called the AirPower that it announced a year ago. Apart from this, the conference is also a valuable opportunity for the burgeoning developers' community to interact with Apple's engineers, and attend workshops that not only help them improve their skill set but also help Apple refine its products.

Will MacBooks be able to run iPhone apps?

The fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV owners will have to download the Apple Events app from the App Store of tvOS for this.

However, Apple is also likely to hold its traditional iPhone event in September to reveal the next version of its smartphone, and the firm could choose to also discuss its other hardware products then. A Dark Mode for macOS is also expected at the event. The new iPad Pro is thus expected to come with thinner bezels to make it look more 2018-ish though a technology like Face ID would be too much to speculate at this moment.
