Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference allows the company to show off what they’ve been working on for the past year and enables developers to get together, network and experiment. This year’s 5-day event in San Jose kicks off on June 5, however before the doors were even opened the tech giant may have let one of their announcements slip through the cracks.
According to The Verge, developer Steve Troughton-Smith claimed that the iOS App Store posted a placeholder listing for an Apple-developed app dubbed Files. While it didn’t say much else, the app reportedly called for iOS 11, which hasn’t been revealed yet. Plus, the icon for the app is a macOS-style folder, The Verge reported.
The outlet went on to say that Apple is giving the iOS’s approach to file management a makeover.
“Ever since the original iPhone was released in 2007, Apple’s mobile devices have abstracted away files wherever possible, leaving the handling of documents to individual apps and cloud services,” according to The Verge.
So what else can you expect from Apple and their much-anticipated event? Many hope to see improvements to the iPad along with iOS file management. A new place for Siri to live, enhancements to the MacBook line, new apps, and more have been predicted.
CEO Tim Cook will take the stage at 1 p.m. EST to give the keynote address. If you’d like to watch it live, head over to Apple’s website to see it via a live stream.
