Liveblog: Apple’s WWDC 2018 keynote is on June 4

While a new SE model that combines the best elements of the iPhone 5S and iPhone X would undoubtedly be cool, it's unlikely Apple will announce a notched iPhone SE anytime soon.

On Monday, Apple will hold its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose.

These may not be that spectacular this time around though, as an Axios article indicates that Apple is aiming for stability over new features for these versions, after troubles with software bugs with iOS 11.

Like Google's previously announced 'Digital Wellbeing" features for Android, Apple is said to be working on something called "Digital Health' that shows you how you've been spending your time on your phone. We expect to hear some sort of confirmation from Apple at the WWDC 2018 event scheduled to kickoff on June 4th.

It's been a tight ship over there at Apple, so for the first time in a long time, we know nearly nothing about what will be announced at an Apple Keynote. It's also become an embarassing truism that Apple is bad at AI, at least in comparison to Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

Games With Gold Titles Revealed for June 2018
Actually it's not a game at all, it's a pack of skins, characters and other gubbins for free-to-play title Smite . Transform your vehicles mid-race from auto , boat, and plane as you try to win on land, sea, and air.

The software update won't be available to the public right away, but is expected to be released later this year. According to the report in Bloomberg, the Digital Health feature will include a number of tools which could help Apple iOS users to see how much time they are spending on their devices. Google made a similar announcement at its own I/O conference earlier this month.

It is interesting to see the two biggest technology companies introducing features to curb tech addiction.

Siri isn't an operating system in a traditional, literal sense: It's a feature which spans all of Apple's products, and which mostly lives in the cloud rather than running on the devices themselves.

Rumors suggest that Apple's plans for iOS 12 will make this refresh a bump, not a jump, a fine-tuning that fixes past problems and buffs up the quality of day-to-day use. The company may launch a wireless charging pad called the AirPower that it announced past year. It could be discussed this year-or Apple could wait until next year's macOS release to talk about it. But we think there's a good case for new hardware come Monday, and on this week's CultCast, we'll tell you why.
