Apple’s WWDC goes digital amid coronavirus crisis
Despite the international pandemic, Apple’s show must go on: the WWDC will be an online-only event this year.
Late last week, Apple announced that its annual WWDC, also known as the Worldwide Developer Conference, will be an online-only event allowing millions of developers across the world to connect while staying safe at home from coronavirus contamination.
The conference will kick off this June for its 31st edition and will “be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers to get early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, and engage with Apple engineers,” albeit virtually.
Thus far, Apple has only confirmed that the digitalized conference will consist of keynote presentations and sessions during which online members can interact with Apple engineers. How interactive, however, the company will be able to make it for their participating developers is yet to be disclosed.
Updated features for each of their operating systems are expected to be announced, possibly even some new hardware.
More details about the event’s program will be revealed as the date draws nearer. Right now, Apple has only stated that WWDC will take place in June. JB
