Apple will again host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 8 through 12 (for Australians) in an all-online format.
The conference usually hosts thousands of developers in California but due to the pandemic Apple has been forced to move to online presentations.
Although nothing beats being there – the online version is free for all developers.
“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing.
“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.”
WWDC21 will provide more than 28 million developers and next generation of app developers – like those in the video above – with the information and tools to convert their ideas into real working apps.

New ways for developers to interact with Apple engineers and designers to learn about the latest frameworks and technologies.
To support the local economy, even while WWDC21 is hosted online and as part of its US$100 million Racial Equity and Justice Initiative, Apple is also committing US$1 million to SJ Aspires, an education and equity initiative launched by the City of San José. Focused on enabling youth in underserved neighbourhoods to set goals and chart a path toward receiving a college education, SJ Aspires offers a performance-based scholarship program that educates students about their college and career choices, and provides individual mentorship and advising as well as online tools to help reduce the barriers Black and Brown students face in accessing academic opportunities. This builds on Apple’s multiyear partnership with the City of San José and the San José Public Library Foundation in support of technology programming.
