Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is an information technology conference held annually by Apple Inc. The conference is usually held in the San Jose Convention Center in California. Due to the COVID-19 safety restrictions, WWDC 2021 (June 7 - 11) was presented online. The event is usually used to showcase new software and technologies in the macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS families as well as other Apple software. Attendees can participate in hands-on labs with Apple engineers and attend in-depth sessions covering a wide variety of topics.

The first ever WWDC was held in 1983 with the introduction of Apple Basic, but it wasn't until 2002 that Apple started using the conference as a major launchpad for new products. Beginning in 1987, WWDC was held in Santa Clara. After 15 years in nearby San Jose, the conference moved to San Francisco, where it eventually became Apple's primary media event of the year and regularly sold out. WWDC returned to San Jose 13 years later. The most recent event, called WWDC 2021, was held online from June 7 to June 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
