Linkly is a curated list of interesting products, topics and talking points from the world of design and technology. Last week was all about Google, so we only thought it was fair to give Apple a go too. WWDC is only a few weeks away and we've curated a list of predictions our team at Bilue are hoping will turn into a reality at this years event.

Siri Smarts

There is speculation that Apple is planning on releasing a Siri SDK to allow developers to tap into Siri functionality and open up clever possibilities for apps inside the iOS ecosystem. We’re really interested in seeing how this might change how people interact with their devices and if talking to Siri in public becomes more conventional.

Apple Music Changes

This article makes mention of a colour scheme change from magenta to black and white, larger album artwork images, smart playlist functionality and a moments style feature where you can track what music you were listening to at particular points in time or place. Apple loves to pull the heart strings!


We're all super excited to see what is unveiled at WWDC. If you have more to add on the topic, we'd love to hear your thoughts and predictions!
