Earlier last month, Apple announced that it’s first-ever Virtual WWDC 2020 event is scheduled to commence on 22nd June. But today, Apple has revealed the schedule for the launch event with its keynote details. In an official blog post, Apple announced that the WWDC 2020 keynote will start at 10:00 AM PDT (10:30 PM IST/ 1:00 PM EST) and stream directly from Apple Park.
Although Apple didn’t disclose anything about the keynote, we all know they will talk about their next-gen software, iOS 14, iPadOS, watchOS 7, macOS, and more. Some rumors state that the iOS 14 will come with Home screen widgets, dedicated AR app Gobi, and the choice to try apps before installing them. Similar to the Google Play Instant on Android.
Other than the keynote, Apple will convene its annual Platforms State of the Union address. It will start at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET and will be available on-demand via the Apple Developer website and the Apple Developer app. The conference lineup also contains “Platforms State of the Union timing, and information on how developers can learn about the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS, and engage with Apple engineers.” However, it sounds like it won’t be live and will get released all at once.
This year, the developers will be able to request an appointment with the Apple engineers and work eye-to-eye with the brand new iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS releases. Apart from that, Apple will also lift the wraps off its redesigned Apple Forums later next week before WWDC 2020. According to Apple, it will “connect you with more than 1,000 Apple engineers to answer questions and engage in technical discussions.”
Some rumors also state that there will couple of new hardware announcements such as a newly redesigned mac and much more. Don’t forget that Apple will reveal its plans on how they will transition the Mac lineup to custom ARM processors. So, wait for the official virtual event and stay tuned for more updates.
