Apple has just announced the program for its 2020 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which, exceptionally this year, will take place exclusively online from June 22 to 26.

The 31st WWDC, which has been organized under exceptional conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, will include a long opening keynote, 100-plus engineering sessions on very specific questions, new forums that are accessible to developers and bookable one-on-one sessions with Apple engineers.

The opening keynote, on June 22, will give Tim Cook and his teams an opportunity to present an overview of Apple's activity and the broad outlines of future updates for the different operating systems that run on Apple branded products: iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. At the same time, there is always a possibility of a surprise unveiling of new hardware.

At the same time, a thousand Apple engineers will be on-hand for personalized one-to-one technical tutorials, which have to be booked in advance.
