Apple set to unveil iOS 18 and more at WWDC24 on June 10

Apple has announced this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) nice and early this year. The week-long event will kick off on June 10, and we have confirmation that it will once again be an (almost) fully online event. That means live streams of every talk, and free access to all developers around the world. It’s a far cry from the old days of expensive, limited tickets.

A refresher: WWDC is an annual event in which Apple reveals its upcoming software updates to the world, giving developers a chance to integrate new features before they launch to the public. It’s the world’s first glimpse at new features and design changes.

WWDC kicks off with a keynote speech showing off the most exciting new features to the public, saving the dev-focused technical stuff for later in the week. From time to time, we see hardware reveals at the event too. Like the iPhone reveals in September, this opening presentation is a good watch even if you’re not a developer, and it’ll be live on YouTube.

This year, expect to see a full preview of iOS 18, plus details on the next versions of iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. All of those updates are expected to launch in September, with the summer given over to beta testing and bug fixing.

Although the bulk of the event is online, Apple is hosting a special “in-person event” on June 10 for a limited number of people. You can apply for tickets here. It’s also offering a three-day experience to 50 “Distinguished Winners” of the annual Swift Student Challenge, to support up-and-coming young devs.

“We’re so excited to connect with developers from around the world for an extraordinary week of technology and community at WWDC24,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “WWDC is all about sharing new ideas and providing our amazing developers with innovative tools and resources to help them make something even more wonderful.”

We’re looking forward to seeing what iOS 18 has in store – rumor has it we’ll see some big changes this year. Rest assured we’ll bring you updates on everything you need to know from the event when it kicks off on June 10.
