- Apple has confirmed the schedule for WWDC21.
- The online conference kicks off with June 7's keynote.
With WWDC21 now just two weeks away Apple has confirmed (opens in new tab) the schedule for its online developer event. Thinks will kick off June 7 with a 10 a.m. PDT streamed keynote that will likely include the unveiling of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and tons more.
The opening keynote is always the highlight of WWDC and it's likely to be a packed one this year. Unlike the rest of the conference, the keynote will be streamed to everyone via YouTube and other platforms.
Apple's Platforms State of the Union comes straight after the keynote as Apple delves a little deeper into whatever software was announced earlier in the day.
From that point on it's the Apple Design Awards before the real meat of the conference with developers given the chance to learn from Apple's "more than 1,000" experts. To that point, Apple says this WWDC will be the best yet in terms of giving developers access to its teams.
