Apple is planning on unveiling iOS 15 and other major updates when WWDC 2021 officially kicks off. The annual Worldwide Developers Conference will take place starting June 7 to June 11, a completely online format as already happened in 2020. The most awaited users are waiting for will be on June 7, as several updates including iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS 12, and watchOS 8.
It is hard to introduce new hardware, but we could be surprised. In the following days, developers will be able to participate for free in various online sessions and seminars with Apple engineers and experts to be able to learn more about all the news of the new operating systems.
Apple also announced that this year’s Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for young developers to demonstrate their programming skills by creating in Swift, is starting to welcome applications that can be submitted until April 18. Winners will receive an exclusive WWDC 2021 outerwear, a personalized pin set, and one year of Apple Developer Program membership.
Apple also has donated $1 million to San Jose for equity, and education initiatives in the poorest areas. The event announcement reveals very little, given that you see a Memoji with glasses staring at the Macbook screen.
“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers. 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”.
