Apple have now announced their coveted Worldwide Developers Conference will now be free and all-online and will start on June 22. Developers interested in tuning in can do so via the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website for free for all.
Apple did say back in March that WWDC would take a new approach, where Apple senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller said:
“We are delivering WWDC 2020 this June in an innovative way to millions of developers around the world, bringing the entire developer community together with a new experience”.
Speaking on the new announcement, Schiller had this to say:
“WWDC20 will be our biggest yet, bringing together our global developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented way for a week in June to learn about the future of Apple platforms,”
The exact details about the event’s keynote, Platforms State of the Union, labs and sessions will be shared in June according to Apple. This will be a first for Apple’s WWDC event being available virtually, which is of course attributed to the global health crisis we are facing.
Either way, this will be the time we get a peek at some new up and coming features for iPhones, as well as the whole armada of Apple products. While these events tend to be developer oriented, with not much for consumers, it’s still interesting to watch. And who knows, Apple just may tease some new hardware at the event as well. Stranger things have happened in these times.
