Apple has revealed the dates of its annual developer conference — WWDC 2022. The event will be a virtual one and will take place between June 6 and June 10. At WWDC22, Apple will showcase the latest features that are expected to come this year in iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The new features that will come to iPhones, iPads, Mac devices, Apple Watch will be revealed at WWDC 2022. The features, as always, will roll out to end users later in the year around September or October.
The event — apart from giving glimpse into Apple’s various OS platforms — is also meant to give developers gain insight and access to Apple’s technologies and tools. In a post on its website, Apple said that this year’s program will also include more information sessions, more cutting-edge learning labs, more digital lounges to engage with attendees, and more localised content.
Apple also said that it will host a special day for developers and students at Apple Park on June 6 to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos together, along with the online community. Apple has mentioned that space will be limited, and details about how to apply to attend will be provided on the Apple Developer site and app soon.
Like it has done in the past two years, Apple will also support students who love to code with the Swift Student Challenge. Swift Playgrounds is an app for iPad and Mac that makes learning the Swift programming language interactive and fun. For this year’s challenge, students from around the world are invited to create a Swift Playgrounds app project on a topic of their choice, and they can submit their work through April 25.
Last month, Google also revealed that it will host its developer conference — I/O — virtually only.
