Today, Apple has announced its lineup for its World Wide Developers Conference that is set to begin on Monday, June 7.
It is said to be the event this year where Apple will unveil its newest versions of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS and macOS, as well as have other events throughout the week for developers to participate in remotely.
Here is this year’s lineup:

WWDC21 kicks off with the unveiling of exciting new updates coming to all Apple platforms later this year. Streamed directly from Apple Park, the keynote address will be available via apple.com, the Apple Developer app, the Apple TV app, and YouTube, with on-demand playback available after the conclusion of the stream.

Every year, the Apple Design Awards celebrate the creative artistry, craftsmanship, and technical achievement of Apple developers. The Apple Design Awards will stream via the Apple Developer app and the Apple Developer website.
- Access to Experts
Featuring over 200 in-depth sessions, one-on-one labs, and more, WWDC21 will provide unprecedented access to Apple engineers and designers so developers can learn about the latest tools and technologies to help them create the next generation of apps. Apple Developer Program members can request one-on-one lab consultations with more than 1,000 Apple experts to ask questions about the latest APIs and best practices, and apply for user interface and design reviews. Apple engineers will also be available in Apple Developer Forums throughout the week to answer questions and engage in technical discussions. Beginning June 8, session videos will be posted each day and will be available in the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website.
- Special Events
In addition to sessions and lab consultations with Apple engineers and designers, WWDC21 will feature special activities and events designed to celebrate developers and bring the community together. Try a coding or design challenge, learn from guest speakers, and more.
New for WWDC21, Pavilions provide an easy way for developers to explore relevant sessions, labs, and special activities for a given topic. Conference attendees can customize their WWDC experience and check out content organized around specific areas like SwiftUI, Developer Tools, Accessibility & Inclusion, and more — exclusively within the Apple Developer app.
Apple is also encouraging its users and developers to download the Apple Developer app from the App Store that will provide extra details regarding WWDC this year.
