The American multinational Manzana announced this Tuesday that it will celebrate its traditional WWDC developer conference from June 7 to 11 this year in a 100% virtual format for the pandemic of covid-19.
This will be the second online edition of the historic conference, which normally brought together thousands of programmers from all over the world in the San José convention center (California, USA) but that already last year had to go digital for the first time because of the coronavirus. As on that occasion, the Cupertino firm explained that participation will be completely free, so it expects millions of people around the planet to connect to it.
As is customary in Apple advertisements, the company barely offered clues about what new products are going to be presented, beyond that the future trends of the iOS operating systems (iPhone), iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS will be shown. “We are working to make WWDC21 the biggest and the best to date, and we are excited to offer developers new tools to help them create applications that change the way we live, work and play,” he said when announcing the dates. from the conference Apple Vice President for Developer Relations Susan Prescott.
The company, which this thursday he will be 45 years old, estimates that there are around 28 million programmers in the world who work with their operating systems. Last year, the company took advantage of the WWDC celebration to renew the software of all its devices and announce the change to microchips of its own manufacture for Macs, a movement that materialized later that year with the release of the first computers with M1 processors.
