Some of the biggest announcements in Apple’s history have been made during a WWDC. It is one of the annual events that Apple has scheduled and it is usually one of the most headline-grabbing, but what exactly is the Apps WWDC?
The WWDC is the Worldwide Developers Conference, i.e. Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. It is an annual event that takes place every June and usually lasts a whole week. This event is focused on software and developers, and Apple puts new software tools at your fingertips and explains how they work.
Traditionally, WWDC is a software event. Apple usually presents its new operating systems at the opening conference of the WWDC and we have a first look at the new versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. During the rest of the week, there are workshops for developers to get to know the new systems and their possibilities in depth.
What is presented at WWDC? Are there new devices?
As we have already mentioned, WWDC is a software-focused event. Apple puts the first betas of its new operating systems and new tools on developer devices so they can get the most out of them in their applications.
For a few years Apple took advantage of the event to also present its new iPhone model for that year, however this is now done in a separate event in September. On many occasions we have seen new devices at WWDC, especially Mac computers which are used by software developers for Apple devices. The original Macintosh was unveiled at WWDC in 1984.
Where is Apple’s WWDC taking place?
The Apple Developers Conference has been held in different places near Cupertino, from the Moscone Center in San Francisco to the McEnery Convention Center located in San José. During the pandemic years, the conference was recorded in Apple Park without an audience. Apple usually chooses these places because of how large they are, they can accommodate thousands of developers and the specialized press that covers the event.

The entrance to the WWDC is assigned through a contest, developers who want to attend must sign up and pay the registrationwhich has reached $1,599. Although it is true that apple also usually invites some student developers.
Since when does Apple celebrate the WWDC?
The The first WWDC was held in 1983 and became known as the Apple Independent Software Developers Conference. And the participants of the event had to sign a confidentiality agreement, so not much is known about the event. Although it is said that attendees were able to get their first look at the Lisa, the world’s first personal computer with a graphical interface.
Since then the WWDC has been celebrated every year without interruption. From 1989 to 2002 it was held during the month of May, and as of 2003 the developer conference has always been held in June.
