Back in March, Apple announced that it’s moving its annual developer’s conference — WWDC 2020 — to an online-only format in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. Today, the company has put out a press release announcing that the event will be held starting June 22.
In the online event, Apple will preview the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. Apple will also release developer betas at the same time.
This year, Apple says it will hold a full online schedule of keynote and sessions. Apple said it will be sharing more details in the coming weeks. Clearly, Apple had to shake things up significantly as it has not announced a firm date for the keynote — just that the new WWDC will happen sometime in June.
Craig Federighi, Apple SVP Software Engineering, teases the event: “With all of the new products and technologies we’ve been working on, WWDC 2020 is going to be big”.
Apple also said it will contribute $1 million to local San Jose organizations to help offset the economic hit to the city from WWDC not being held at a physical location.
Apple says it will share more details about its plans “between now and June”.
WWDC 2020 begins on June 22 and will be accessible using the Apple Developer App (download) and the Developer website for free for all developers. Also, if you’re interested in entering the Swift Student Challenge, you can send in your entry till May 17, 11:59PM PDT on this link.
