Expectations for WWDC haven’t changed much, except this odd rumor from Mark Gurman:

One standout feature will bring generative AI to emojis. The company is developing software that can create custom emojis on the fly, based on what users are texting. That means you’ll suddenly have an all-new emoji for any occasion, beyond the catalog of options that Apple currently offers on the iPhone and other devices.

This sounds like emoji in the same way that a random audio file without an RSS feed is a podcast. The technical bits matter. Emoji is special because it’s just text and portable everywhere.
