Apple’s WWDC returns for 2021 as an online event

Apple has officially announced that their Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is coming back this year as an all-online format.

“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing. “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.”

WWDC21 will include announcements from the keynote and State of the Union stages, online sessions, 1:1 labs and more for Apple’s developer community of more than 28 million.

At WWDC 2020, Apple announced their transition to Apple Silicon (now known as M1), so naturally, we’re expecting to see the next-gen version of Apple’s Mac chips alongside iOS 15 and more this year.

Just like years past, Apple has announced the Swift Student Challenge that invites students to ” to create an interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes.”

Submissions for the challenge are being accepted now through April 18th. Winners of the challenge will get exclusive WWDC21 outerwear and a pin set.

In addition to WWDC21, Apple is committing $1 million to SJ Aspires, an education and equity initiative launched by the City of San José. This is part of Apple’s previously announced $100 million Racial Equity and Justice Initiative.

WWDC21 takes place from June 7th through 11th and free to all registered developers.
