Apple has announced the dates for its 34th annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The tech giant has confirmed that WWDC23 will take place from June 5th to June 9th. The conference will be organized in an online format; however, an in-person experience can be availed at Apple Park on the first day, unlike last year’s event.
WWDC23 will give ‘an opportunity for developers and students to celebrate in person’ and ‘spotlight the latest iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS advancements,’ stated Apple. Read on to know the full details of the event.
Apple WWDC23 to be Held from June 5th to 9th
Announcing the dates, Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, said, “WWDC is one of our favorite times of the year at Apple because it’s an opportunity to connect with the talented developers from around the globe who make this community so extraordinary.”
She added, “WWDC23 is going to be our biggest and most exciting yet, and we can’t wait to see many of you online and in person at this very special event!” The 2023 edition will feature sessions, one-on-one labs, and collaboration opportunities with Apple engineers and developers.
WWDC23 Expected Launches
Every year, Apple announces some of its new products, including hardware and software developments, at the conference. This year’s event is expected to see the unveiling of iOS 17, the next-gen iPhone operating system. The new iOS is expected to come up with the iPhone 15, scheduled to launch later this year.
Apple could also launch the highly-awaited augmented/virtual reality headset. The device has been in the news for quite some time now. Almost every year, it is predicted to be unveiled at the WWDC. However, the chances of its announcement are higher this year as the headset was demoed to top Apple executives this month.
The company might also be announcing new Mac hardware at the conference. An Apple Silicon Mac Pro is reportedly in development and has also been teased by the tech firm a couple of times.
Apple is also said to be developing a 15-inch MacBook Air, which might also be a part of the announcement lineup. At the last year’s WWDC22, Apple announced several updates, including iOS 16, MacOS Ventura, resigned MacBook using the M2 chip, and WatchOS 9.
The Conference will Host the Swift Student Challenge
Apple is also providing an opportunity for students to create an app playground as a part of its Swift Student Challenge. “WWDC23 is also an opportunity to support student developers through the Swift Student Challenge, one of many Apple programs that seek to elevate developers and learners of all ages who love to code,” said the firm.
“With the help of Swift Playgrounds — a revolutionary app for iPad and Mac that makes learning the Swift programming language interactive and fun — students from around the world are invited to create an app playground on a topic of their choice,” it added. Students can apply for the challenge on its official website.
