On Monday, Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, will kick off in San Jose, California.

WWDC is Apple’s opportunity to showcase what it has planned on the software side. At the keynote address Monday afternoon, we’ll likely get our first look at the updates coming to iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers.

Plus, there’s always a chance that Apple will introduce some new hardware. Last year, Apple unveiled a new iPad, an improved iMac, and HomePod, a Siri-enabled home speaker.

This year, Apple is expected to launch new tools to help combat smartphone addiction and improvements to its augmented reality software, ARKit.

Of course, we won’t know for sure what Apple has up its sleeve until WWDC officially begins. Here’s everything you need to know if you want to tune in to the keynote:
