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