Apple on Tuesday sent out invites to press for WWDC, confirming the conference’s date and start time. Festivities kick off on Monday, June 4, at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET). Mark your calendars now, because this year’s event is expected to be a doozy.

The Cupertino company’s opening keynote should see Apple unveil new software and possibly even fresh hardware, including the iPhone SE 2 and a smaller HomePod under the Beats brand. The unveiling of iOS 12 is especially anticipated given how difficult the release of iOS 11 was.

Apple was expected to introduce a home screen redesign in iOS 12, along with other UI tweaks, but the myriad problems in iOS 11 reportedly caused the company to reevaluate its priorities. The release of iOS 12 will now reportedly focus mainly on optimization, which hopefully means there will be far fewer bugs this time around.

Apple is also expected to introduce new updates for macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. This year’s WWDC is shaping up to be an exciting one for Apple, and we’ll find out exactly what the company has planned in a few weeks.
