    Pretty much every WordPress template needs to use the have_posts() and the_post() functions of the main query to work, so rather than making developers do this:

    global $wp_query;

    while ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : $wp_query->the_post();


    The have_posts() and the_post() functions are made available as shorter ways to deal with the main query:

    while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();


    It’s sort of a form of ‘syntactic sugar’, just to make development a bit easier.
