Lock the Apple WWDC 2021 keynote time into your iCal: Tim Cook will take the stage Monday, June 7 at 10am PDT, according to some official news by the company today.
The means you’ll be able to tune into the Apple WWDC 2021 live stream at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST and 3am AEST (technically June 8 by that time), and you can now peruse the developer conference’s program schedule.
The date isn’t actually new news. Apple revealed back in March that its Worldwide Developers Conference was scheduled for Monday, June 7 through Friday, June 11. Now we know more about how Apple will fill the rest of the week after the keynote.
What to expect at the Apple WWDC 2021 keynote
With the rest of the conference so developer-focused, most Apple consumers are focused on the keynote, wondering what Tim Cook and company have planned.
We’re fairly positive that each of the latest operating systems will make an appearance. Beyond iOS 15, we should see the latest tricks of iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, macOS 12 and watchOS 8. The latter will have to combat Google’s exciting new Wear OS upgrades announced at Google IO last week.
We don’t expect the iPhone 13 or Apple Watch 7 to make appearances, so this dev conference could be fairly light on product reveals. But the promo images for WWDC 2021 have all hinted at something related to Apple Glasses, so we’re intrigued at the idea that Apple could finally show off its long-rumored AR/VR glasses next month.
After the keynote, Apple will hold a Platforms State of the Union at 2pm PT specifically targeted to developers; it will take a ‘deeper dive into the new tools, technologies, and advances across Apple platforms’ and stream on the Apple Developers app.
On the Developers app, you’ll find Pavilions where devs can search for relevant information on new products or a given topic. Apple will stream over 200 Sessions focused on iOS app development to the app as well across the five days, plus allow you to schedule ‘one-on-one lab consultations’ with Apple developers.
