Today, Apple announced the starting date of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2021. It will be an online-only event just like last year. The event will take place from June 7th through June 11th.
“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.” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing, in a press release.
What do you think about the memoji character with glasses, which reflects a MacBook, in the poster? Will it be something about AR glasses?
However, the major software updates for WWDC 2021 could be iOS 15, macOS 12, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15. At this year’s conference, the developers from worldwide will be able to join with online sessions and engage with technical guidelines provided by the 1:1 lab. They can also interact with Apple engineers and designers to learn about newly-developed frameworks and technologies.
The event is scheduled to air on Apple.com, the Apple Developer website and app, the Apple TV app (on the Apple TV), and YouTube.
For students who love coding, Apple is hosting the Swift Student Challenge this year as in previous years. They have to create an interactive scene in the Swift Playground app. In previous years, the winners of this challenge received a scholarship to attend the WWDC, but this year the winners will receive exclusive WWDC 2021 apparel, a pin set, and a free membership to the Apple developer program for one year. Students have until April 18 to submit their Swift playground.
