Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) kicks off shortly, and the Cupertino, California-based company is likely to unveil a string of new software updates, and could potentially surprise everyone by revealing new hardware at the event.
V3 has run down what could be unveiled at this year's event:
While there are no concrete announcements that are known about just yet, the event, which is scheduled to begin at 6pm (BST) , 10am (PT), 1pm (ET), is rumoured to be where Apple launches iOS 11 - the operating system for which its new phones - potentially a 7S, 7S Plus and a 10-year anniversary special edition iPhone will all be based on.
The new iOS could be the end for 32-bit apps - which are apps released before 2013. Other rumours focus on a ‘dark mode' display, updates to Siri, iMessage and Facetime, and to Apple Pay which could let users transfer money between iPhones.
After the enormous success and buzz surrounding Amazon's Echo (often mistakenly called Alexa - the name used by people to control the device), and Google Home, Apple could release its own version of the device. Bloomberg had reported that Apple had been testing a voice-controlled smart home device, but that was last year, and not much has been said since.
Apple Files App
Developer Steve Troughton-Smith spotted that the iOS App Store currently has a placeholder listning for an Apple app dubbed Files. Onlookers have suggested that this is yet another development in Apple's approach to file management. Essentially, it means consumers will get a more Android-like file browser, enabling easier sharing between apps.
iPhone SE 2
While Apple is extremely unlikely to announce its special 10-year anniversary iPhone, or indeed a 7S or 7S Plus, it could launch the iPhone SE 2, the second iteration of the popular, smaller version of its latest handsets. The original SE, which stood for Special Edition, was the same size and shape as an iPhone 5 and 5S, but came equipped with the same specs as the iPhone 6S. The rumour mill suggests that the latest model could be a smaller version of the iPhone 7, with an all-glass back that closely resembles the iPhone 7's jet black.
Apple could release the latest version of its other operating systems, MacOS 10.13, WatchOS 4 and TVOS 11.
If it was to surprise us all with hardware releases; Apple could unveil a bigger iPad Pro, new MacBook models or a 4K Apple TV.
What will be of most interest is what iOS 11's features could mean for the upcoming iPhone launches in September.
