Apple’s doing things differently this year. The company is making its annual developer conference virtual, and also pushing back the date from the usual first-week-of-June start. It announced on Tuesday that WWDC will begin June 22:
Apple today announced it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference virtually, beginning June 22, in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website for free for all developers. The company also announced the Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for student developers to showcase their love of coding by creating their own Swift playground.
The later date makes sense, as the company’s no doubt been working on transitioning the whole event online. Apple previously announced that the event would be virtual and start in June. Apple’s press release on Tuesday included a statement from exec Phil Schiller promising that Apple would share further details about the event “as we get closer” to the start date.
