Apple's event calendar is all wrapped up for 2023, but 2024 is already shaping up to be a great year for all things Apple. 

Apple always hosts a select number of events throughout the year that we can predict with relative certainty. Each year in September the company hosts its annual iPhone event, where it unveils its next best iPhone, alongside the latest and greatest in Apple Watch. We can expect iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro to drop at that event next year, alongside Apple Watch Series 10. 

Likewise, WWDC will take place in June. Apple's annual developer conference always heralds the next iteration of software for each of Apple's major products. Before then, however, we're expecting an Apple event in March of 2024. Apple often holds a spring event to herald new products from its other lines, notably iPad and Mac, and 2024 is looking pretty special.

We've been told to expect some brand new products at the March 2024 Apple event. Specifically, we can expect a new M3 MacBook Air, likely a 13-inch and 15-inch variant. There's also reportedly going to be a new OLED iPad Pro with M3, and a new M2 iPad Air 6 featuring a new larger 12.9-inch model. Apple Vision Pro is also tipped for launch early next year, so it's possible Apple could confirm the release of the spatial computing headset at the same time. 

WWDC 2024: When is Apple's developer conference?

If Apple sticks to form we can expect WWDC 2024 to take place starting either June 3 or June 10. The company should unveil iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and the next instalments of macOS and watchOS. 

Apple October event: What was announced at the October Mac event?

At the most recent Apple event Apple unveiled its brand new M3 chip, which powers the new M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max MacBook Pro 14- and 16-inch. It also unveiled its new M3 iMac

When is WWDC 2024?

WWDC took place from June 5th to June 9th in 2023 and June 6th to June 10th in 2022 so we anticipate a very similar date for 2024.
