Apple WWDC 2020: Online-only developer conference starts 22 June

Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference is all set for 22 June 2020. For the first time ever, the big event will be held online only, amid concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. WWDC20 will be free for all developers globally via the developer website and mobile app.

Catch the livestream

The keynote will be live-streamed on 22 June, 10 a.m. PDT (23 June, 1.00AM MYT). Here’s where to catch the WWDC20 keynote:

WWDC typically focuses on software and Apple’s portfolio of operating systems including macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS, but it has sprung surprises with hardware announcements.

Last year, it unveiled the USD5,999 Mac Pro desktop and USD4,999 Apple Pro Display XDR, catered for the professional market.

There is also a focus on Swift, Apple’s programming language for kids, with Apple doing a Swift Student Challenge where winning students can receive an exclusive WWDC20 jacket and pin set. Each year, Apple typically sponsors over 300 students from around the world to visit WWDC.

Apple has been holding WWDC at the San Jose McEnery Convention Centre since 2017. The decision to move one of its biggest annual events online did not come as a shock, following similar moves by other events such as Facebook F8, MWC Barcelona, and SXSW.
