Apple's WWDC remains virtual in 2022


Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference will again be held in an online format this year.

Traditionally a greatly oversubscribed physical event, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) went virtual in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Citing the success of the format, Apple says WWDC22 (6 to 10 June) will also be virtual.

The online format means all developers – and there are more than 30 million of them – can attend free of charge, although the time differences may be challenging for residents of some countries.

But WWDC22 won't be 100% online: a limited number of developers will be able to attend the event in person at Apple Park on 6 June. Details will appear on the Apple Developer site and in the app soon, company officials said.

As usual, WWDC22 will showcase the latest innovations in iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, and give developers access to Apple engineers and technologies.

"At its heart, WWDC has always been a forum to create connection and build community," said Apple vice president of worldwide developer relations and enterprise and education marketing Susan Prescott.

"In that spirit, WWDC22 invites developers from around the world to come together to explore how to bring their best ideas to life and push the envelope of what's possible. We love connecting with our developers, and we hope all of our participants come away feeling energised by their experience."

Apart from the usual keynote and state of the union presentations, WWDC22 will include more information sessions, learning labs, digital lounges, and localised content to make WWDC22 a truly global event, Apple said.

And the Swift Student Challenge returns for 2022, in which students are invited to create a Swift Playgrounds app project on a topic of their choice. Entries are open until 25 April (US Pacific Daylight Time).
