Apple has extended invitations to select media representatives and creators for an in-person experience of its WWDC 2023 keynote event. The event is set to take place at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Slated to start at 10 am PDT / 1 pm EDT on June 5, the keynote will also be accessible through live streaming, enabling audiences worldwide to tune in from their homes.
Typically, the WWDC keynote features the announcement of new software updates for devices such as the iPhone (iOS), iPad (iPadOS), Mac (macOS), and others. This year, the buzz suggests that Apple may reveal its much-anticipated augmented reality headset. This product signifies the tech giant’s debut into the “mixed reality” arena, encompassing both AR and VR technologies.
Along with the speculated headset, dubbed “Reality Pro,” Apple is also rumored to unveil its “xrOS” software and associated developer tools.
Speculations are also running high about the potential unveiling of a new 15-inch MacBook Air, with the possibility of other models making a debut.
The Platforms State of the Union will be conducted later the same day, at 1:30 pm PDT or 4:30 pm EDT. This event will provide developers with a detailed overview of the advancements in tools and technology. Access to this event will be granted via the Apple Developer app and the Developer website.
At 6:30 pm PDT or 9:30 pm Eastern Time, the Apple Design Awards ceremony will be held, and the winners will be declared via the Apple Developer app and website.
Throughout the week, from June 6 to June 9, developers can view 175 comprehensive session videos on the Developer app and website to learn about creating new apps and games. From June 7 to June 11, Apple engineers and designers will be available on Slack to organize activities, engage in technical discussions, network with other developers, and address queries.
