Apple WWDC 2020 Goes Online

Apple WWDC

Apple, on Tuesday, announced what the tech-world was eagerly waiting for, The annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The Conference will be held online, starting June 22, and will be available to all developers for free via the Apple Developer app and Apple Developer website.

Apple has not yet revealed its upcoming lineup of new software, something that is traditionally unveiled at WWDC. WWDC 2020 is where Apple will share the first glimpse of what is in store on the software side of things, for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS as well as new tools that may be in development. Developers will also get access to early builds of the software for testing, a process that will continue for the next few months before the official release of these updates later this year.

In a blog post, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller said, “We can’t wait to meet online in June with the global developer community and share with them all of the new tools we’ve been working on to help them create even more incredible apps and services. We look forward to sharing more details about WWDC20 with everyone as we get closer to this exciting event.”

Apple has also said there will be a Swift Student Challenge, which will provide a platform for student developers to showcase their skills by creating their own Swift playground.

We can also hope to see a new operating system for Apple Watch according to a report last month that suggested Apple working on a Kids Mode in watchOS 7 that will allow parents to connect more than one Apple Watch to their iPhone. The next iterations of macOS, the tvOS, and iPadOS are also expected, amongst other announcements.
