The conference will start on June 22 and will take place online only. The Californian firm has just unveiled the date of its next big conference, the Worldwide Developers Conference 2020 (WWDC 2020). An annual meeting that is particularly aimed at developers, but which also brings together many journalists and bloggers. It is also an opportunity for Apple to present the new version of its operating systems. In addition to some new products.
This edition promises to be particularly different since it will only be held online. This is due to the health crisis facing the world for several months.
“WWDC20 will be our largest to date, bringing together our global developer community of over 23 million people in an unprecedented way for a week in June. They will learn more about the future of Apple platforms“. Said Phil Schiller, senior vice president of global marketing for Apple.

“We can’t wait to meet online in June with the global developer community and share with them all of the new tools we’ve been working on to help them create even more incredible apps and services. We look forward to sharing more details about WWDC20 with everyone as we get closer to this exciting event.” said Apple in its release.
Usually a WWDC ticket costs around $1,500. This year, access to the various conferences will be free for all developers.
“Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community; and last year WWDC saw attendance from more than 350 student developers spanning 37 different countries”. Said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “As we look forward to WWDC20; although our gathering will be virtual this year; we want to recognize and celebrate the creative contributions of our young developers from around the world. We can’t wait to see this next generation of innovative thinkers turn their ideas into a reality through the Swift Student Challenge.”
