Apple Makes the Announcement of WWD23 to be Held from June 5 to June 9!
Hold your breath, folks!
Dear Apple lovers, hold your breath as the much-awaited Worldwide Developers Conference is finally here! The tech behemoth has stated that starting from June 5 to June 9, Apple is going to organize the 34th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC23). Although unlike previous years, the conference will be held entirely online. However, attendees will be able to attend in-person on the first day at Apple Park.
Intrigued, right? Read on to know more about it.
All that you need to know about the conference
In order to educate developers on the new features and software that will be unveiled at WWDC, Apple will offer online workshops and labs. Moreover, there will be the customary Swift Student Challenge, for which Apple is taking submissions until April 19.
Requests for attendance at the Apple Park event can be made by current Apple Developer Program members, Apple Entrepreneur Camp alums, previous Swift Student Challenge winners, and current Apple Developer Enterprise Program members. Apple intends to choose attendance through a random lottery, with announcements expected to be made by April 5 at 6:00 p.m.

Prior to 2020, WWDC was an offline event located at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose; however, now that the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions have been lifted, Apple has decided to hold an online-only event instead. Due to no attendance restrictions, the online approach enables more developers to attend WWDC.
Using email, the Apple Developer app, and the Apple Developer website, Apple intends to give developers more information prior to WWDC 2023.
Apple typically utilizes the conference to announce information about the upcoming versions of its operating systems, including iPadOS, iOS, watchOS, macOS, and (sometimes) tvOS. The company announced Stage Manager, the M2 chip, the redesigned Home app, customizable lock screens for iOS 16, and other things at the event's keynote address last year.
Also, it wouldn't be unusual if Apple made a hardware announcement for the Mac at the event. Plus, it would make sense to make the Apple Silicon Mac Pro announcement in front of a crowd of professional Mac users as the company has been keeping us on the edge for a long time now.
Also, there have been rumors that Apple is developing a 15-inch MacBook Air; so, an announcement of this sort at WWDC would make sense considering that a new 13-inch model was introduced at the same event last year.
The Swift Student Challenge
The Swift Student Challenge, one of several Apple programs that aims to elevate developers and students of all ages who love to code, is an amazing opportunity for all student developers at WWDC23. Students from all around the world are asked to create an app playground on a topic of their choice using Swift Playgrounds, a cutting-edge tool for iPad and Mac that makes the process of learning the Swift programming language all interactive and exciting.
The company said- “WWDC23 is also an opportunity to support student developers through the Swift Student Challenge, one of many Apple programs that seek to elevate developers and learners of all ages who love to code.”
It further added- “With the help of Swift Playgrounds — a revolutionary app for iPad and Mac that makes learning the Swift programming language interactive and fun — students from around the world are invited to create an app playground on a topic of their choice.”
To wrap it up
The Vice President of worldwide developer relations of Apple, Susan Prescott, says that the WWDC of this year is going to be Apple’s “biggest and most exciting yet.” She further added- “WWDC is one of our favourite 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,”
Nonetheless, it is most certain that whatever Apple has in store for us, it will be absolutely phenomenal!
