Apple announced it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 7 through 11, in an all-online format. The conference will be free for all developers and will offer unique insight into the future of iOS, iPad, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
Building on the record-breaking participation and learnings from last year’s online conference, WWDC21 is an opportunity for developers to learn about the new technologies, tools, and frameworks they rely on to build innovative and platform-differentiating apps and games.
Another thing that Apple also announced was that this year’s Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for young developers to demonstrate their coding skills by creating a Swift playground, is now accepting submissions. Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations and Enterprise and Education Marketing commented:
“We love bringing our developers together each year at WWDC to learn about our latest technologies and to connect them with Apple engineers. 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.”
All Apple customers rely on its products more than ever to work, learn, express their creativity, and entertaining. The WWDC21 will provide Apple’s worldwide community of more than 28 million developers, as well as the next generation of app developers, with the information and tools needed to turn their ideas into reality.
This year’s Swift Student Challenge will invite all students to create an interactive scene in a Swift playground that can be experienced within three minutes.
Swift Playgrounds is a revolutionary app for iPad and Mac that makes learning the Swift programming language interactive and fun. 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.
