Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference starts June 7
Apple announced today that its Worldwide Developers Conference will launch on June 7. The event ends three days later on June 10th. As with last year, the conference will be completely online.
As usual, the first day is the busiest, as it is when the company also keeps its main tone, where it will announce the upcoming development for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. There may also be some hardware messages.
Keynote will be available for streaming from apple.com, the Apple Developer app, the Apple TV app on supported platforms, and YouTube.
Also the first day is Platforms State of the Union for the developers where they can find out about the new tools, technologies and advances from Apple that were announced during the event. This will be able to be streamed via the Apple Developer app and the Apple Developer website.
Apple also holds its usual in-depth sessions and one-on-one labs for developers. These help developers talk to actual Apple engineers, including those working on specific features or APIs, and let them dispel any doubts or confusion they may have about the platform. Members of the Apple Developer Program can request a one-on-one lab consultation with over 1,000 Apple experts. From June 8, session videos will be released daily in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website.
Other events include special activities and events, such as coding or design challenge, and keynote speakers from guest speakers. And finally, on June 10, Apple will also be holding its Apple Design Awards for apps in the App Store.
Like WWDC 2020, WWDC 2021 is completely free for all registered Apple developers.
