[Slashdot] - Apple's WWDC Stays Online-Only, Kicking Off June 7


Recommended Posts

Apple this morning announced that it will be returning to an all-virtual format for a second year. The company went online-only for the first time in 2020, as Covid-19 ground in-person events to a halt. From a report: While vaccine rollouts have begun in much of the world, the return of the in-person event industry still seems iffy for most of the rest of the year. The event will run June 7-11. "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," Developer Relations VP Susan Prescott said in a release tied to the news. The virtual format certainly has its advantage -- accessibility being at the top of the list. Apple said last year's was its "biggest ever," and expects roughly 28 million developers from around the world at this one. In addition to not having to deal with traveling -- not to mention the South Bay hotel crunch -- the company offers up free access to the event for all qualified developers.
