Apple’s WWDC 2016 developer conference is approaching and it is scheduled for June 13-17. There are several reported in-development features and fixes that will be rolled out on your iPhone. They are as follows.

Apps

iOS 10 would have the ability to cover Apple’s stock apps from your Home screen. According to reports, Apple is planning to introduce a standalone app that would give a location other than Siri and third-party apps for HomeKit.

The app would manage accessories using the platform. Reports even suggest that Apple is working on a way to provide users paid subscription content via its News app. It was launched last year along with iOS 9.

App Store

VP of Worldwide Marketing of Apple, who has recently taken over another responsibility of App Store, have confirmed that the company would solve the long-standing issues, especially with search and discovery features.

Apple Music & iTunes

Apple will overhaul the Apple Music as per the report filed by 9to5 Mac, earlier this month. Currently, Apple is working on a new, mostly black and white UI service, noted Mark Gurman. It was criticized by users and press, despite that it managed to hit 13 million paying subscribers in its first year of availability.
