Articles about Apple Worldwide Developers Conference

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is an annual event where smartphone and computer maker Apple addresses developers of the applications supported by the company's closed ecosystem. Usually, the event is held at the San Jose Convention Center in California but due to pandemic-induced restrictions, the 2021 event was hosted virtually from Apple Park. The event is usually centered around emerging Apple software technologies including operating systems such as macOS, iOS, iPad OS, watchOS, and tvOS. The first WWDC was hosted by Apple in 1983 to introduce Apple Basic. Usually, only registered members of the Apple Developer Program can attend this event while viewers around the world can watch a live telecast/webcast. The week-long event begins with a keynote address by the company's CEO and other executives that is followed by Platforms State of the Union address that highlights points that will be detailed in sessions later that week. Apple Design Awards are also presented on the first day of the conference. At WWDC, Apple has introduced several iconic concepts including the famous Macintosh, Carbon (a version of the classic macOS implemented on OpenStep), and Safari browser.
