WWDC20 Keynote and Lineup Announced 6/11/2020

Apple has announced the WWDC20 Special Event Keynote starts June 22 at 10 a.m. PDT and will be streamed live on apple.com, the Apple Devleoper website, the Developer app, the Apple TV app, and YouTube and in China on Tencent, iQIYI, Bilibili, and Youku. From Apple’s Newsroom:

Now in its 31st year, WWDC20 will be the biggest WWDC to date, bringing together the global Apple developer community of more than 23 million in an unprecedented, virtual way, from June 22 to 26. Apple today shared the WWDC20 lineup, including keynote and Platforms State of the Union timing, and information on how developers can learn about the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS, and engage with Apple engineers.

Following the Keynote at 2 p.m. will be the Platforms State of the Union address, proving a deep dive into the operating systems by Apple lead engineers. Apple also announced engineering sessions, new developer forums, and by appointment 1-on-1 developer labs.

On a personal note, I was planning to attend my first WWDC this year. While I’ll be watching this keynote from home — just like every other year — I’m excited to see how Apple presents the keynote in this new format. I can’t imagine it’s just Tim & Co. on stage in front of an empty auditorium. There’s so much potential here to make this a really unique keynote presentation and (because it’s Apple) my expectations are high.
