Apple has announced this year’s WWDC which will take place between 7-11 June. Like last year, WWDC 2021 will be an online-only event panned out across the week with different scheduled streams and workshops for developers.
Apple released the WWDC 2021 announcement with a vague image that possibly hints at things to come. The image features a memoji looking into a Macbook Air. The character is wearing glasses which reflects the icons on the display. One of these icons is the calendar that has the start date for the conference. Users seem to believe that the glasses are hinting at the Apple AR Glasses reveal or the long-awaited VR headset.
WWDC 2021 will play host to iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and a new WatchOS. Apple will most likely announce a new version of Mac OS. You know, the usual announcements. In a press release, Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of worldwide developer relations said:
“We are working to make WWDC21 our biggest and best yet, and are excited to offer Apple developers new tools to support them as they create apps that change the way we live, work, and play,”
Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the online-only approach for WWDC 2021 comes as no surprise. Apple will most likely keep the conference this way until further notice. Other annual expos and conferences including Comic Cons and E3 have all confirmed digital-only events. This being until it is safe to get together again.
