WWDC 2021 (Worldwide Developers Conference) event will take place from June 7 to June 11. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Cupertino behemoth has opted for an online case, similar to what we saw last year.
WWDC 2021 will begin on June 7
Apple is expected to reveal iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS updates during the virtual gathering. All developers are welcome to attend. At WWDC 2021, Apple is expected to announce and share information about iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS 12, tvOS 15, and watchOS 8. Apple has been working on new Apple Silicon Macs, despite the lack of specific details on hardware releases at the case.
In a press release, Susan Prescott, Apple’s Vice President of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing, said, “We’re working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet, and we’re excited to give Apple developers new resources to help them as they build apps that change the way we live, work, and play.”
This year’s event will feature announcements from the keynote and State of the Union stages, as well as online workshops, 1:1 labs providing technical feedback, and innovative ways for developers to communicate with Apple engineers and designers, according to Apple. The Swift Student Challenge is still going on, and students are encouraged to submit their work until April 18. Apple’s website has more detail about the Swift Student Challenge.
Apple also revealed that as part of its $100 million Racial Equality and Justice campaign, it would donate $1 million to SJ Aspires, an education and equity initiative. More details will be released before WWDC 2021 via the Apple Developer app, website, and email.
