Apple has announced that it will kick off its 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6 with a keynote addressed focused on updates that will roll out to its product lineups this year. The company has also released the full slate of developer-focused programming that will span the week-long event. Get all the details below.
When is WWDC 2022?
WWDC 2022 will run from June 6 through June 10, 2022.
When is the WWDC keynote?
The keynote address will kick off the event on June 6 at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT.
How can I watch the WWDC keynote?
Apple will stream the keynote live on its website apple.com, as well as inside the Apple TV app on the Apple TV.
Is WWDC 2022 in-person?
Though Apple is hosting an in-person special program on June 6 for a limited number of developers and students, the program will once again be mostly hosted online. The full slate of programming is free for all developers to access and covers the “latest technologies, tools, and frameworks coming to iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS,” according to Apple.
What will Apple announce during the keynote?
Appropriately for a developer event, WWDC has been focused primarily on software announcements in recent years. Though Apple is rumored to be working on M-Series silicon-based updates to the iMac Pro and the Mac Pro, along with the annual updates to the iPhone lineup, you can expect the event to highlight what’s new in iOS 16, iPadOS 16, the watchOS, tvOS, and the next version of macOS.
