Apple Cancels In-Person WWDC, Will Be Offering Online-Only Version

Apple Newsroom:

Apple today announced it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Now in its 31st year, WWDC 2020 will take on an entirely new online format packed with content for consumers, press and developers alike. The online event will be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers to get early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, and engage with Apple engineers as they work to build app experiences that enrich the lives of Apple customers around the globe.

Apple also announced it will commit $1 million to local San Jose organizations to offset associated revenue loss as a result of WWDC 2020’s new online format.

Unsurprising, even in the framing of this announcement. Nothing has yet been disclosed about the cost of WWDC this year, or even the date beyond “June”. Apple says that more details are to come.
