Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which takes place from June 6th to June 10th, will once again be an online-only event. Apple, on the other hand, said that on June 6th, it will conduct an in-person session at Apple Park, with select developers and students watching the keynote and State of the Union recordings alongside the online community. Details about how to apply will be available “soon.”
Historically, WWDC has been a software-focused event at which Apple announces upcoming improvements to iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. Apple, for instance, released a series of software enhancements last year, including SharePlay support for FaceTime, the ability to save IDs digitally in Apple Wallet, widget support for iPadOS, and enhanced privacy protections for its iCloud Plus subscription service.
However, this does not mean that WWDC is always solely focused on software. At previous presentations, Apple introduced the new Mac Pro and HomePod, as well as updated iMacs and iPad Pro models. Apple announced the switch of the Mac lineup to its own Arm-based Apple Silicon at its 2021 conference.
