Apple will host its annual WWDC in an online format from June 5 through 9, 2023

Apple has announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) online from June 6th to 10th, 2023, with an open-day experience at Apple Park for developers and students to attend in person. As in previous years, WWDC23 is free and open to all developers, aimed at showcasing the cutting-edge innovations of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS, as well as providing an opportunity for developers to communicate with Apple engineers to gain a deeper understanding of new technologies and tools for realizing their visions.

WWDC is one of our favorite times of the year at Apple because it’s an opportunity to connect with the talented developers from around the globe who make this community so extraordinary,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “WWDC23 is going to be our biggest and most exciting yet, and we can’t wait to see many of you online and in person at this very special event!

In addition to news announced through keynote speeches and the Platforms State of the Union, WWDC23 will include multiple lectures, one-on-one labs, and opportunities for developers to communicate and collaborate with Apple engineers and other developers. In addition, the Swift Student Challenge will provide support for student developers.

Apple will showcase three new systems, iOS 17, Watch OS 10, and iPad OS 17, as well as the new macOS 14, at this year’s WWDC23. Judging from the design of the invitation pattern, which is similar to the Fresnel lens commonly used in headsets, many speculate that Apple will release its first mixed reality (MR) device. Rumored to be equipped with an 8K resolution display and advanced eye-tracking technology, the headset is expected to be priced at $3,000 or more.
