The Apple Worldwide Developer Conference will take place in 2021. This year’s event will also feature a new feature called the Pavilions, which will allow developers to select which events to attend.
This year’s WWDC will take place from June 7 to 11, 2021. It will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The event will also feature a keynote address from Steve Jobs, as well as the first details about a new app called Pavilions.
The event, which is expected to last for around three hours, will be streamed live on Apple’s website, apps, and YouTube.
The event will start at 10:00 AM on June 7. On the first day of the event, the company’s annual “platforms state of the union” will take place at 2:00 PM.
Where the event will be live streamed, it will be available only on the Apple Developer app and YouTube.
This is also where the Apple Design Awards can be watched. That is scheduled to take place on June 10 at 2:00 PM PT.
“New for WWDC21, Pavilions provide an easy way for developers to explore relevant sessions, labs, and special activities for a given topic,” continues Apple. “Conference attendees can customize their WWDC experience and check out content organized around specific areas like SwiftUI, Developer Tools, Accessibility & Inclusion, and more — exclusively within the Apple Developer app.”
There are also a series of over 200 unscheduled “in-depth sessions, one-on-one labs” for developers. “Apple Developer Program members can request one-on-one lab consultations,” explains the press release, “with more than 1,000 Apple experts to ask questions about the latest APIs and best practices, and apply for user interface and design reviews.”
Apple has further revealed that there will be assorted special events “designed to celebrate developers and bring the community together.” Also, ahead of the main week, there will be a related celebration of the winners of the Swift Student Challenge on June 1.
