Apple today announced it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference virtually, beginning June 22, in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website for free for all developers. The company also announced the Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for student developers to showcase their love of coding by creating their own Swift playground. Now in its 31st year, WWDC20 will be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers around the world to get early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS, and to learn from Apple engineers as they work to build app experiences that enrich the lives of Apple customers around the globe.

“WWDC20 will be our biggest yet, bringing together our global developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented way for a week in June to learn about the future of Apple platforms, 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.”

Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

At WWDC, Apple will unveil iOS and iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, tvOS 14, and macOS 10.16. There’s no word whether we might see new products introduced around the event, but Apple is working on AirTags, Tile-like Bluetooth tags that could come out around that time.

There’s also a new 23-inch iMac in the works, along with high-end over-ear headphones, some kind of wireless charging mat, a new iPad Air, an updated Apple TV and more, with details on what Apple is developing available in our upcoming products guide.
