Apple WWDC 2021 to take place on June 7, may announce iOS 15 and more
Apple has finally announced the dates of its upcoming WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference). Like the last year, the company will be holding the event in an online-only format. WWDC keynote event will take place on June 7 and the entire conference will go through June 11. It is free for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS developers.
It is worth adding that every year, Apple launches major updates to its software for all hardware platforms - iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS and tvOS. The firm also showcases new features coming in existing Apple devices and will also be rolling out developer and public beta versions to try it out before the final version gets released later this year.
The upcom iPhones, tipped as iPhone 13 series, will launch with the latest iOS version. This year, the firm seems set to introduce iOS 15, tvOS 14, watchOS 8, iPadOS 15 and macOS 12.

“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing. “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.”
This year’s conference will include announcements from the keynote and State of the Union stages, online sessions, 1:1 labs offering technical guidance and opportunity for developers to interact with Apple engineers and designers. The company will also be continuing to support students who like to code with this year’s Swift Student Challenge.
“Now through April 18, students can submit their Swift playground to the Swift Student Challenge. Winners will receive exclusive WWDC21 outerwear and a pin set,” stated the Apple Newsroom post.
