The conference will kick off this June for its 31st edition and will "be an opportunity for millions of creative and innovative developers to get early access to the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS, and engage with Apple engineers," albeit virtually.

More details about the event's program will be revealed as the date draws nearer. Right now, Apple has only stated that WWDC will take place in June.
