Leaker Predicts WWDC Details: A14, macOS Big Sur, Redesigned UI, iPadOS Improved Hand Writing
In a last minute series of tweets, leaker L0vetodream has posted a number of last minute predictions about WWDC 2020. Apple's WWDC kicks off on Monday morning with a live stream. A previous series of rumors suggested we'd see no new hardware at WWDC, which @L0vetodream agrees with saying "There will be no hardware tomorrow and Im sure Jon is right".
Beyond that, the Twitter account shares some details about the upcoming announcements. Most specifically, L0vetodream specifies "macOS Big Sur" as the name for macOS 10.16 which will also include a "redesigned UI" and "huge update" for Safari.
The other predictions are somewhat more vague, with this year being the "year of A14", Apple's own custom processor. The A13 presently drives the latest iPhones. tvOS and HomeKit
integration are mentioned as well as watchOS updates including sleep and "hand wash monitoring function."
iPadOS is described with a redesigned Sidecar
-- Apple's feature
to turn an iPad
into a secondary monitor for a Mac. Finally, "improved and enhanced hand written input is also predicted.
L0vetodream has previously had accurate predictions
and normally writes their predictions in this sort of vague style.

Overdue, when you receive a phone call and if hijacks your screen, ?♂️ You have to sit there like a idiot waiting for the call to stop, before returning to what you were doing.
hopefully rumor of widgets on home screen is true, be nice to see a refresh of the UI.
THANK YOU, APPLE! I’d take that and some bug fixes and call it iOS 14. Lol.
