‘WWDC-(worldwide developers conference)’ is Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference where developers can attend sessions and meet with Apple engineers. WWDC will be held on June 6-10 this year. The 33rd Worldwide Developers Conference will once again be a digital-only event with no physical gathering due to the ongoing global health crisis. The WWDC 2020 and WWDC 2021 conference were also digitized. This will allow all developers to participate for free, and the way it works will allow developers around the world to connect to future versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.
Apple plans to hold a private event for some developers and students, inviting them to watch the WWDC flagship recording at the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. This is an invitation-only event, and developers and students will be able to apply. Apple is once again gifting a Swift Student Challenge with the WWDC 2022 swag.
Although WWDC 2022 will be held digitally, it plans to hold a public viewing event for selected developers and students. Apple plans to allow developers and students to apply for an opportunity to visit Apple Park for the viewing party, but space will be limited. Apple plans to provide more information on how to apply soon.
Swift Student Challenge
