In an announcement that surprised approximately no one, Apple has scheduled its 2023 Worldwide Developer Conference for June 5th through 9th. WWDC will once again take place online for free, along with a special one-day event at Apple Park, accessible by lottery. Requests to attend must be submitted by 4 April 2023. Also on the docket is a Swift Student Challenge for budding developers, who have until 19 April 2023 to submit their entries.
It’s a safe bet that the WWDC keynote will feature iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17. Plus, the rumor mill is working itself into a tizzy over Mark Gurman’s report of the possible unveiling of a mixed-reality headset. Other rumors from Gurman suggest a 15-inch MacBook Air, the long-awaited release of a Mac Pro with Apple silicon, and conceivably an M3-powered update to the 24-inch iMac, though that seems slated for later in the year.
This is also a good opportunity to remind everyone of our Apple-Related Conferences in 2023 collection—if you know of conferences that should be listed, add them!
