Apple said Tuesday that its annual WWDC developer conference will begin on June 6.
The company will hold a launch event on the first day of the conference. Apple typically unveils new apps for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac at a presentation featuring its CEO Tim Cook on the first day of the WWDC.
WWDC 2022 will be virtual and will be broadcast on the Apple website. The event will last until June 10. Apple has been running virtual events since 2020.
The software, introduced at WWDC, will be in beta during the summer before being released in the fall along with new iPhone models. This year, Apple’s iPhone software will likely be called iOS 16.
WWDC focuses on Apple software developers who create applications for the company’s platforms. Much of the conference after the first day’s presentation is dedicated to classes where developers receive instruction and advice from Apple staff on how to create the best programs and use the company’s software.
But it’s also the first time the public can look at the major new features of the software that Apple plans to release within a year.
Some developers and students will be able to apply to view the presentation at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Apple may also announce a high-end Mac Pro desktop. During the last event to launch the campaign in March, officials suggested that this would be announced in the future.
