Apple has confirmed the dates for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2020. The event – to be held virtually – will begin on June 22 on the Apple Developer app as well as the Apple Developer website. Apple will give a glimpse of what the event will bring for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
“WWDC20 will bring our global developer community to an unprecedented way in June with over 23 million a week,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing. “We can’t wait to meet online in June with the global developer community and share with you all the new tools we’re working on to help them build even more incredible applications and services.” As we get closer to this exciting event, we look forward to sharing more information about WWDC20 with everyone.
As always, WWDC is a platform for student developers to showcase their coding skills. Apple also announced the Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for student developers to demonstrate their love for coding by building their Swift playground.
“Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community, and last year WWDC saw the presence of more than 350 student developers from more than 37 countries,” said Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi. “As we look forward to WWDC20, although our gathering will be virtual this year, we want to recognize and celebrate the creative contributions of our young developers from around the world. We cannot wait for the next generation of innovative thinkers to turn their ideas into reality through the Swift Student Challenge.”
Apple has asked developers to download the Apple Developer App where additional WWDC20 event information will be made available as the event date gets closer.
