Apple's 2021 Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off next week with Monday's Keynote presentation at 10 am PDT (1 pm EDT). Apple also offers its State of the Union starting four hours later. The events typically showcase the future of Apple's mobile and computing platforms, including iOS and macOS. Watching the 32nd annual keynote is free and does not require a subscription to the Apple Developer Program.
Apple announced it will repeat its all-online format for the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year. The event takes place from June 7 to 11, with no cost to developers. Apple will deliver sessions, labs, and product announcements throughout the week to showcase the company's latest technologies, tools, and platforms.
WWDC kicked off today with a virtual keynote presentation to developers all over the world. Apple showed off the highlights of iOS 14, which is expected to release this fall. Probably the most visible and significant update comes to the home screen, with adjustable widgets delivering data in real-time.
Apple plans to host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference starting on June 22 this year. For the first time in 31 years, the event will be entirely virtual. Over 23 million Apple developers around the world are invited to take part in the conference free of charge.
With WWDC19 kicking off tomorrow, Apple has left several clues that major changes are afoot. The iTunes brand in particular could be history, as the company moves to separate the iTunes app into several distinct parts. The iTunes Instagram page has been wiped out, with a link directing visitors to the Apple TV account instead.
