According to Apple the online event will feature a “completely new online experience.” The online event will include Apple’s traditional announcement keynote and developer sessions.
This is the first time this event is happening online, like many other events this event will be held online this year due to deadly outbreak of Coronavirus worldwide.
Apple announced the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event entirely online to reduce spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).
“We are delivering WWDC 2020 this June in an innovative way to millions of developers around the world, bringing the entire developer community together with a new experience,” said Apple in an official statement.
“The current health situation has required that we create a new WWDC 2020 format that delivers a full program with an online keynote and sessions, offering a great learning experience for our entire developer community, all around the world.”
According to the reports Apple has committed $1 million to organize this event in San Jose. But in the wake of widespread physical events, the company will conduct the event online.
There were many events whose physical version was canceled and changed to an online event. Apple’s WWDC event is the latest of industry events that have been moved to digital format due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
