For the second year in a row, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will be held as an online event from June 8-12 and free for all developers so they can discover the latest developments with iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
Because of the COVID pandemic, last year’s WWDC was run successfully online with record developer participation and Apple is expecting WWDC21 to exceed last year’s numbers.
WWDC allows developers to learn about new technologies, tools and frameworks that they can use to build the next generation of innovative apps and exciting games.
“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing.
“We are working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet and are excited to offer Apple developers new tools to support them as they create apps that change the way we live, work, and play.”
There are more than 28 million developers in the Apple community who produce the apps that help iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV users work, learn, play, create, entertain and stay entertained.
This year’s WWDC will include the opening keynote which will reveal all of the new versions of the various operating systems along with online sessions, 1:1 labs offering technical guidance and new ways to interact with Apple Engineers.
Apple will also be supporting students who love to code with the Swift Student Challenge which will see them create an interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes.
Winners will win exclusive outwear and a pin set. For more information go to the Swift Student Challenge website.
Apple’s 2021 Worldwide Developers Conference will run from June 8-12 and hosted through Apple’s website.
