Apple has announced that its 34th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will take place from Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 9. As with the past three years, the conference will be held online and open to all developers for free.
The conference will feature online sessions and labs where developers can learn about the new features and software to be unveiled at WWDC. Additionally, there will be a Swift Student Challenge, which Apple will accept applications for until April 19.
Although the conference will be online, Apple is planning a special all-day event on June 5 at the Apple Park campus for select developers and students. Attendees will be able to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos, meet some Apple employees, and attend the Apple Design Awards. Apple held a similar in-person event last year.
Those who are eligible to submit a request to attend the Apple Park event include current Apple Developer Program members, Apple Entrepreneur Camp alumni, prior Swift Student Challenge winners, and current Apple Developer Enterprise Program members. Apple plans to select attendees through a random lottery, with notifications set to go out by April 5 at 6:00 p.m.

The keynote event will take place on Monday, June 5, and will showcase iOS 17, iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS 14, as well as potentially new hardware announcements. This year’s event is expected to focus on the AR/VR headset that Apple has in development, and we could also see the Mac Pro and a 15-inch MacBook Air.
Prior to 2020, WWDC was an in-person event held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. However, even with the COVID-19 pandemic subsiding, Apple has opted for an online event. The online format allows more developers to get the WWDC experience as there are no attendance limitations.
