Inspite of the COVID-19 outbreak, there is no one to stop Apple from its releases and announcements. Recently, it has launched a new iPhone SE and announced a new MacBook pro. Now, it has revealed when it will be holding its annual worldwide developer’s conference (WWDC) 2020. However, the event will be held online. This will take place on June 22, and Apple has also announced the Swift Student Challenge. This Swift Student Challenge is an open platform where student developers can submit their coding work.
Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing says “WWDC20 will be our biggest yet, bringing together our global developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented way for a week in June to learn about the future of Apple platforms”. He also added “We can’t wait to meet online in June with the global developer community and share with them all of the new tools we’ve been working on to help them create even more incredible apps and services. We look forward to sharing more details about WWDC20 with everyone as we get closer to this exciting event”.
Apple is holding WWDC20 online this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Last Schiller said” The current health situation has required that we create a new WWDC 2020 format that delivers a full program with an online keynote and sessions, offering a great learning experience for our entire developer community, all around the world. We will be sharing all of the details in the weeks ahead”.
Also Apple is bringing major iterations to iOS, watchOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and macOS. Many tech analysts expects Apple to reveal iOS 14 for iPhones later this year.
