Apple has announced that will once again be hosting its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in an all-online format, taking place June 6 through 10.

Free for developers to attend, the event will showcase the latest innovations across the Cupertino giant’s iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS platforms. There will also be access to Apple engineers and technology to help the company’s 30 million+ pool of developers to create new apps and interactive experiences.

In addition to announcements made in the keynote and State of the Union presentations, Apple says this year’s program will include more information sessions, learning labs, digital lounges, and more localized content.

“At its heart, WWDC has always been a forum to create connection and build community,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing. “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 energized by their experience.”

Apple also announced it is hosting a special event for developers and students on June 6 to watch the keynote and State of the Union videos together. Space for the gathering will be limited, with details about how to apply to be provided on the Apple Developer site and app “soon”.

Additionally, 2022 marks the third year that Apple is supporting coding students with the Swift Student Challenge. For this year’s challenge, students are invited to create a Swift Playgrounds app project on a topic of their choice, with submission accepted through April 25.

“Apple is proud to support and nurture the next generation of developers through its annual WWDC student program,” the Cupertino company said in a release. “Over the past three decades, many thousands of students have sharpened their skills and connected with other coders of all ages.

“They have gone on to nurture long and successful careers in technology, found venture-backed startups, and create nonprofits focused on using technology to build a better future.”
