Following the announcement of WWDC 2021 in March, Apple has now revealed the full schedule for its online keynote. The main conference, where Apple will announce new software, begins July 7 at 1
Last year, Apple used the WWDC live stream to announce software updates for all of its major hardware. We expect the company to do the same at WWDC 2021, with announcements of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8 and the latest version of macOS (this will be macOS 12 if Apple decides to continue with the name “Big Sur”). The company could also discuss Apple Music’s new lossless streaming feature launching in June.
Here’s the full schedule for WWDC 2021. Keep in mind that, aside from the July 7th Apple Keynote, these events are exclusive to developers:
Keynote from Apple: June 7, 10 a.m. PDT
WWDC21 kicks off with the unveiling of exciting new updates arriving on all Apple platforms later this year. The keynote address is streamed directly from Apple Park and is available from apple.com, the Apple Developer app, the Apple TV app and YouTube, with on-demand playback after the stream ends.
State of the Union Platforms: June 7, 2 p.m. PDT
Dive deeper into the new tools, technologies, and advancements on Apple platforms that help Apple developers create even better apps. Platforms State of the Union will stream via the Apple Developer app and the Apple Developer website.
Apple Design Awards: June 10, 2 p.m. PDT
Every year, the Apple Design Awards celebrate the creative art, craftsmanship and technical achievements of Apple developers. The Apple Design Awards are streamed through the Apple Developer app and the Apple Developer website.
Apple will also host pavilions and lounges where developers can ask questions and explore topics such as accessibility. It’s an interesting attempt to recapture the in-person keynote experience, something Apple didn’t put a lot of effort into in 2020. Unfortunately, the pavilions and lounges are only available in the Apple Developer app.
The WWDC 2021 keynote will live stream on July 7 at 10 a.m.PT (1 p.m. ET). You can watch it on YouTube, Apple TV or the Apple Developer app.
