Apple hosts digital-only Worldwide Developers Conference

"Developers Conference"

On Monday, June 10th, Apple has scheduled a one-of-a-kind event at its Cupertino headquarters, as a substitute for the typically face-to-face Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The event will usher in a blend of developers and students, showcasing the most recent breakthroughs in iOS, macOS, and their other platforms. The event hints at potential sessions on Apple’s progress in Artificial Intelligence, augmented reality, and privacy capacities.

The digital-only conference, adjusted to the ongoing pandemic, will stream live for developers and enthusiasts worldwide. This enables participation from the comfort of home for a broad audience, involving students and developers globally.

Apple’s attempt at innovative adaptation in challenging times reflects its steadfast commitment to its developer community. The event attendees can anticipate a recorded showcase of novel software enhancements, new programming, and interaction with Apple experts. Moreover, attendees can embark on two tours of Apple Park and immerse themselves in intriguing presentations about advanced software modifications.

The kick-off social gathering of this event will be on Sunday, June 9th, at Apple’s Infinite Loop campus. An alteration from past WWDCs, this event will be live-streamed, extending the opportunity to join, regardless of geographical location. This aligns with health guidelines for curbing COVID-19 spread, indicating Apple’s dedication to attendee safety.

Apple sent out event invites to a select cohort of developers, students, and previous attendees of various Apple programs.

The WWDC will extend from Monday, June 10th, to Friday, June 14th, with its broad audience eagerly awaiting the June 10th keynote presentation’s AI-based innovations. The event will incorporate talks and technical sessions focusing on app and software development, where software developers can directly interact with Apple engineers.

AI-based keynote presentation aside, one-on-one consultations and labs will also be conducted, enabling developers to directly interface with Apple engineers. One of the highlights will be the Design Awards, an accolade that acknowledges the exceptional work of software developers worldwide. The winners will be announced on June 12th.
