Apple has officially announced that its WWDC (Worldwide Developer Conference) event will kick off on June 7.
When is WWDC 2021?
The big keynote for the event will take place on Monday, June 7 and then developer sessions will run until June 11.
Unlike more product-focused Apple events, WWDC is very much about the developers and is usually the place we hear first about upcoming updates to iPadOS, iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. It’s also full of developer events, all which will also be streamed
We have seen hardware announced at WWDC before, however this is far from a given. The 2020 event, for instance, featured no new products and instead focussed solely on software.
“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.”
What could we see at WWDC 2021?
WWDC is the event where Apple typically unveils the next slate of software upgrades for its vast swathes of products. We’d expect WWDC 2021 to showcase the next version of iOS and iPadOS, like iOS 15, along with the follow-up to macOS Big Sur.
