According to a report by 9to5Mac, latest information in the rumor mill is pointing to the possibility that Apple might not be doing any kind of hardware-related presentation during the upcoming and highly anticipated World Wide Developers Conference 2016.

Instead, the event, rumors said, will be heavy on announcements regarding Apple’s software for different platformsthe iOS with the long rumored iOS 10 and possible upgrades and changes to the watchOS and tvOS. The MacOS for Apple computers is also expected to see some changes and new features if not an entirely new version introduced at the event.
