A leak might’ve revealed when Apple plans to hold its biggest event of 2018

WWDC 2018 Date

It goes without saying that Apple's annual September iPhone event is the company's most hotly anticipated press conference of the year. The iPhone is one of the most successful consumer electronics products in history, and people spend the entire year waiting for new iPhone models to be made official in the late summer. In terms of size, however, there's another Apple event that is far larger than the company's iPhone unveiling each year.

We're talking about the annual Worldwide Developer Conference, or WWDC, of course. Apple kicks off WWDC each year with a big keynote, during which the company unveils the next versions of its various software platforms including iOS and macOS, and there are even a few new products unveiled here and there. We still have a while to go before Apple sends out invitations to WWDC 2018 and confirms the dates for the show in the process, but an Apple blog did some detective work and likely revealed exactly when the conference will take place this year.

Concept: Creating a more immersive HomePod store experience with AR and Apple Music

Prior to the release of HomePod earlier this month, many potential readers and Apple customers were eager to hear just how good the $349 speaker would sound. On launch day, we stopped in at several of Apple’s retail locations to see HomePod in person, bringing you photos of the store displays. Demoing a speaker in a noisy environment is no easy task, and while HomePod’s performance is admirable, the difference between your home and a busy store is still markedly obvious. Augmenting HomePod’s in-store display experience could help compensate for the shortcomings of a less-than-ideal testing environment. Here’s how it could be done.

Windows 10 on ARM limits (briefly) confirmed: No virtualization, no OpenGL

As spotted by Paul Thurrott, Microsoft briefly published a document that enumerated the major differences between Windows 10 for ARM processors and Windows 10 for x86 chips. Though the document has now been removed, a cached copy is still available.

Many of the differences are predictable consequences of the different architecture. Windows 10 for ARM is a 64-bit ARM operating system. It can natively run both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM applications (though the SDK for the latter is currently, and temporarily, incomplete). As such, drivers for the operating system need to be 64-bit ARM drivers; existing 32- and 64-bit x86 drivers won't work.

This isn't a surprise; 64-bit x86 Windows can't use 32-bit drivers, either, even though 64-bit Windows can generally run 32-bit applications without even requiring any kind of emulation. This will mean that ARM Windows has limited hardware support relative to x86. It will also pose a problem for some games that use drivers for their copy protection.
