Apple unveils lineup for virtual WWDC
It goes without saying that Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will be very different when it kicks off June 22 with keynote remarks from CEO Tim Cook. That's because this time around, of course, WWDC will be virtual.
What Cook and Co. will address over the five-days is what Apple always reveals at these annual proceedings: first looks at new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
As the name suggests, WWDC is targeted at Apple developers, of which there are more than 23 million. The company plans to host more than 100 engineering sessions, and connect the developer community with over 1000 Apple engineers.
But consumers with an iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Apple Watch or other Apple products will likely be watching from afar as well, to get a good sense on how such devices will evolve with fresh software. They also might just get a hint of something else that’s new.
The rumor mill suggests Apple might showcase newly-redesigned iMacs or maybe an Apple rival to the Tile trackers that help you retrieve lost items.
And surprises are always possible.
Cook’s keynote will be streamed directly from Apple’s Apple Park headquarters via apple.com, the Apple Developer app, the Apple Developer website, the Apple TV app, and YouTube. There’ll also be on-demand playback viewing if you can’t watch live.
