Background

WWDC 2020 was the first Worldwide Developers Conference to be held virtually in an online format, due to the COVID-19 outbreak that temporarily closed all of Apple's retail stores at various times around the world.[6][7] WWDC 2021 was also held online in this manner due to the ongoing pandemic, so WWDC 2022 will be the first event with any form of in-person activity to be held by Apple since WWDC 2019.[2][8]

“Top secret features for WWDC22”

During a demonstration of the Live Text feature of iOS 15 at WWDC 2021, Federighi jokingly leaked a whiteboard listing top secret features supposedly being planned for WWDC 2022, including:[9]

Senior VP Craig Federighi "accidentally" leaks everything.

  • Haircut reminder (use front-facing camera)
  • Personal hologram (video call stand-in)
  • Dog AirPods (AirBuds?? Does Siri speak dog?)
  • Autonomous phone retrieval (Find Me?)
  • Personal stylist feature
  • Scroll to recharge

Federighi's "crack marketing team" had also supposedly been working on names for the next version of macOS, including:[10]

  • macOS Zeppelin
