Apple has scrapped plans to reveal any new hardware at WWDC tomorrow, according to leakers Jon Prosser and Max Weinbach who shared the information on Twitter.



While WWDC is usually a software-driven event, until now leaks had strongly suggested the announcement of new hardware, particularly a redesigned iMac with iPad Pro design language. Other rumored hardware announcements were AirTags, AirPods Studio, and a refreshed Apple TV.

WWDC events sometimes have no new hardware reveals, as was the case in 2018. Last year, Apple used WWDC to offer a preview of the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. It is possible that Apple has faced supply chain issues this year, and may have decided to postpone hardware announcements until its manufacturing situation improves. It may also be the case that Apple simply did not have any hardware announcements planned for WWDC.





Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has also said he does not expect any hardware announcements at WWDC. Prosser and Weinbach are serial leakers, and both caution in their tweets that the information is somewhat uncertain.

Apple will livestream the WWDC keynote and we will be covering the event on MacRumors.com and through our MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Guessing to focus purely on software...
I'm not sure if I am the only one, but I could not care less about software. My iPhone can call, text, receive email, and browse the web. I don't understand Apple's heavy focus on software thinking they have accomplished the impossible. Spoiler alert, it may be half-assed, but Andriod did it first.

It’s a developers conference. If you couldn’t care less about software, the conference wasn’t for you anyway.

Still think we might see an unveiling of the rumored 24" ARM iMac (and maybe a 13/14" ARM MacBook Pro), but no consumer availability dates (I expect both will first launch to developers when they do start shipping).
