Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

As many readers already know, Apple will be holding it's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Keynote on June 4, 2018. The event begins at 10:00 a.m. PDT / 1:00 p.m. EDT and will be streamed live at https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2018/.

While we don't know much for certain about Apple's plans for the WWDC 2018 keynote, it is very likely that Apple will unveil iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5. For a complete look at what to expect at the WWDC 2018 Keynote, check out this round-up from Mac Rumors.

As has become the norm for us over the last few years, we will be doing in-depth coverage of the WWDC 2018 Keynote and related announcements here on AppleVis. We will be watching the live stream and tweeting the announcements as they happen on the @AppleVis Twitter account. Later in the day, Alex Hall will post a recap of the event from a blindness perspective. Finally, we will be recording and releasing an episode of the AppleVis Extra shortly after the Keynote.

What are your hopes for iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5? What other announcements would you like to see at the WWDC 2018 Keynote? Let us know in the comments!

#1 Announcement about improvements for voiceover gig and iOS 12.

Hello,
I would like to here announcement improving accessibility for iOS 12 on the WWDC keynote and I would like to hear Tim Cook talk about accessibility improvements for iOS 12.

#2 Remaining Bugs Being Squashed?

I guess my only wish for tomorrow's Apple event is for the few remaining VoiceOver bugs on the Mac to be squashed. But even if that doesn't happen, it's fine with me. I don't consider any of them to be show-stoppers. As far as iOS is concerned, I don't know. I just got my first iPhone a couple months ago and have been exploring it bit by bit, and am pleased with what I've seen or heard thus far. If the iPhone does contain VoiceOver bugs with the current release, I have yet to find them. I was actually kinda wondering if I'd hear of any bugs at either of my iPhone tutoring sessions, but no such luck. I just want to get to the point where I'm using the thing more.

#3 New voice over

Hoping there is going to be some new voices

#4 WWDC

Well nothing regarding accessibility. But they never do talk about it. Siri short cut is nice but nothing about fixing issues with understanding your request. Hope those who will test 12 beta will report bugs and issues.

#5 my wishes

I hope Apple brings back the delete all button in the mail app for inbox and other folders.
I'd also like to see improvements to the image disscription feature. Maybe in ios. 12, Vo. will finally disscribe Gif.'s.
Also, I hope they fix a bug that's kind of annoying. When I move apps, and I flick down to hear an option on where to place an app it'll say: drop (name of app)--- drop ready without telling me where it's going to drop it. It's like Vo. interrupts itself. Anyone else experienced this? After a few tries, I can usually get it to tell me before or after a certain app.
Maybe they'll fix the news app and put unread back on stories you haven't read. In all, it's just a few small things that are not really show-stoppers, but just small annoyances.
