The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) by Apple is a highly anticipated event for tech enthusiasts, developers, and Apple fans. Besides software updates, Apple often unveils new hardware at WWDC. However, this year is expected to be different.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, known for his accurate Apple predictions, there will be no hardware announcements during the WWDC 2024 keynote on June 10. Gurman stated in his recent Power On newsletter: “There’s no hardware slated to be announced at WWDC unless Apple unexpectedly previews a new device launching later.”

As always, Apple keeps its plans confidential, and surprises could still be in store.
