Siri for apps: At the WWDC 2016 keynote, Siri is likely to hog some limelight with reports stating that Apple my open up its digital assistant for third-party developers. With the Siri SDK (software development kit), developers may be able to make their apps and services accessible through Siri. Yelp is believed to be one of the one of the partners Apple is working with for Siri integration.

iMessage for Android: Apple is reportedly planning to expand iMessage to Android with an aim to capture the messaging market. Apple did it with the Apple Music app, and the move of bringing iMessage to Android could be a further push to ensure its services are not just restricted to iOS, but available across platforms. Along with new built-in encryption software, iMessage could also gain support to transfer money using Apple Pay.

Apple Pay: The Apple Pay payments service is expected to break free from apps and expand support to mobile websites too. The move could also eliminate the need of having to enter billing and credit card details every time while buying something on websites.

Apple Music: The Apple Music service is also due to get some much-needed upgrades. As reported before, new upgrades will focus on making the service more intuitive with new features, a refreshed user interface with black and white color schemes, and more. The refreshed Apple Music app is also likely to gain lyrics support.

Siri-connected speaker: Apple is also likely to reveal its Siri-integrated home speaker that will directly take on the likes Google s upcoming Google Home speaker and Amazon Echo. However, not enough details are available at the moment.

OS X with Siri integration: While the new OS X 10.12 is likely to bring along new features and improvements, there are also rumors that it may no longer be called OS X. Some rumors also point that the new naming scheme could be on the lines of macOS. Apple is also likely to add Siri integration to the new macOS, which will make the virtual personal assistant available across all Apple devices be it iPhone, iPad, MacBook, tvOS or WatchOS.

WatchOS and tvOS: WatchOS for Apple Watch and tvOS for Apple TV are also due to get new features, software refinements and more. While details about the change log are scarce at the moment, Apple may announce some new app development guidelines for developers.
