Apple’s annual developer event WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) will be held online starting June 22. It can be accessed by all developers via the Apple Developer app and on the Apple Developer website, the company announced through a press statement.

Apple had declared in March that WWDC will be held online, right after Google and Facebook had cancelled their offline events and decided to hold them online. All major hardware and software events expected this year have either been cancelled or will be held behind closed doors.

In addition to making the date of the developer event public, Apple also announced a Swift student challenge, to provide student developers a global platform to showcase their coding talent on Swift programming language.
