Like two previous years, the WWDC Developer Conference will be an online event and will take place from June 6-10. However, Apple is organizing a ‘special day’ for Apple developers and students at the Apple Park in Cupertino to watch the presentation videos together.

Apple announced this on his developer website. In 2020, the developer conference was held online for the first time due to the coronavirus. This turned out to be a great success, with a record number of participants. The event was back online in 2021 to build on the success of the WWDC20. Apple now gives that reason again. The annual conference is free to attend digitally by developers.

Also this year, the event will showcase “the latest innovations” across iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Typically, this is where Apple announces new versions of its operating systems; new hardware usually follows during the Apple Events. Last year at WWDC, Apple announced macOS Monterey and iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Apple also announced that Siri would be available to third-party developers.

What Apple will announce this year is not yet known, but it is expected that iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13, tvOS 16 and watchOS 9 will be announced. Apple may also announce an M2 and M2 Pro soc during the event. Initially, according to Bloomberg, a mixed reality headset would also be announced during WWDC, but that has been postponed until later this year.

For the third year in a row, Apple will also host a student competition at the event, the Swift Student Challenge, for which students from 13 years old, or 16 years old in the EU, can apply. Students are instructed to develop a project using the Swift Playgrounds app. The winner can receive a scholarship from Apple in addition to an award.
