Apple today announced the company’s 33rd annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) to be held from June 6 through June 10. This year’s WWDC will continue to be an online-only event as it has been for the past two years, with free attendance for developers.
The announcement has a picture showcasing Swift’s logo, Apple’s programming language. Apple says this year’s program will include more information sessions, more digital lounges, more learning labs, and more localized content.
“At its heart, WWDC has always been a forum to create connection and build community,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing.
“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.”
Apple will also host a special day screening for developers and students on June 6 at Apple Park. They will be able to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos together, along with the online community. More information about the special day will be provided on the Apple Developer Site and app soon.
Lastly, the event will be giving continuation to the Swift Student Challenge, where students from around the world will be competing. Participants are required to create a Swift Playgrounds app project on a topic of their choice and submit their work through April 25.
Apple will preview iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16 at WWDC 2022. We might also see some hardware surprises at the event.
