Welcome back to WWDC. This year, we're expecting Apple to make some wide-ranging announcements, from slight tweaks to major overhauls.

Leaks ahead of the event have suggested big news coming about Siri. For one, expect the voice assistant to launch on Mac. Rumor has it Apple may also open third-party app integration for the service, marking a major, long-awaited change in how it operates.
