Apple WWDC20 to be delivered exclusively online in June

For the first time in its 31-year history, Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June will take on an entirely new format. In wake of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the full WWDC programme including the keynote and sessions will be delivered exclusively online, accessible to its entire developer community across the world.

Apple will be sharing more details in the weeks ahead. In between now and June, more programme information will be shared by email, in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website.

“With all the new projects and technologies we’ve been working on, WWDC 2020 is going to be big,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering.

As usual, Apple will be expected to announce and preview future generations of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

At WWDC19, Apple announced new OS releases including tvOS, watchOS, iOS, macOS Catalina and the iPadOS. The all-new Mac Pro and accompanying Pro Display XDR also made a surprise debut.

The company currently has more than 23 million registered developers in more than 155 countries and regions.

Apple also announced it will commit USD1 million to local San Jose organisations to offset associated revenue loss as a result of WWDC 2020’s new online format.
