What is the Apple WWDC 2022?
WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference where app makers gather in large numbers.
Apple also uses the event to make important announcements about its products.
The event usually attracts thousands of visitors, but in 2020 WWDC was purely virtual for the first time.
And the 2021 WWDC event followed with an online-only experience.
Apple’s 2022 will also be mostly virtual, but with a special limited-capacity event.
“Apple will host a special day for developers and students at Apple Park on June 6 to join the online community to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos,” Apple said.
“Space will be limited and details on how to apply to participate will be made available shortly on the Apple Developer website and app.”
It is unclear whether the media will also be there.
There will also be a virtual keynote event and training for app makers.
When is the Apple WWDC 2022?
This year’s WWDC runs from June 6th to 10th.
The main event takes place on day one and begins with a speech from Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Apple’s keynote is scheduled to begin June 6 at 10 a.m. in California, 1 p.m. in New York and 6 p.m. in London.
It can be viewed completely free online through the Apple website.
