Apple has announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held virtually exclusively from June 6 to 10 (due to the ongoing pandemic). During the WWDC22 keynote, Apple introduced the new versions of iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16 for its iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV devices.
This year’s WWDC22 event logo features the Swift logo with the “Call to code” tagline. This is excellent news for developers, but it’s also good for individual users.
Besides the WWDC22 announcement, Apple will also announce the Swift Student Challenge, which will allow students who love writing the code to submit their Swift Playground projects until April 25 for a chance to win prizes like an exclusive vest, a set of themed custom badges, and a year of free membership to the Apple Developer Program.
In addition to the online conference, Apple will offer a special day at Apple Park on June 6 for developers and students to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos alongside the online community. There will be a limited number of spots available, and information on how to apply will be available soon on the Apple Developer site and app.
At its heart, WWDC has always been a forum to create connection and build community. In that spirit, WWDC22 invites developers from around the world to come together to explore how to bring their best ideas to life and push the envelope of what’s possible. We love connecting with our developers, and we hope all of our participants come away feeling energized by their experience.Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing
