Apple WWDC will happen in the month of June
Apple used its spring event this year to announce the new M1 iPad Pro, a new M1-powered iMac, AirTags and a purple iPhone 12. This summer is when we’ll learn about all the new things Apple will make those gadgets capable of doing with its forthcoming software updates. The tech giant is holding its all-digital Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, online from June 7-11. Fans and developers alike will be able to watch for free.
Last year, Apple announced a major change for its Mac computers, kicking off a transition from them being powered by Intel-made chips to being juiced by chips designed by Apple’s in-house team. That group’s been building chips to power iPhones and iPads for more than a decade, and now Apple says those chips are capable enough to power computers too.
So far, the new computers powered by the new M1 chip have received positive reviews for their long battery life and cooler feel. Despite the initial positive reception, industry watchers are anxious to see how those chips will power more performance-heavy computers. Apple WWDC could also use the event to announce its next-gen M2 chips.
When will it be?
Apple’s online-only WWDC begins June 7 at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. BST, and at 3 a.m. AEST on June 8 (sorry, Australia). Though Apple hasn’t officially announced CEO Tim Cook’s traditional opening keynote presentation, it would be a shock if he didn’t appear.
