Apple has decided, WWDC 2020 will take place next June. Against the background of Coronavirus, the largest conference dedicated to Apple developers will therefore be held exclusively online. A way to save the event for the Cupertino company.
WWDC20 will take place on the Internet
Apple did not want to cancel everything, unlike Facebook, Google and other competitors. The 2020 edition of WWDC will be held well in early June, but only on the Internet. Here is what we are currently reading on the site:
In June, WWDC20 brings a whole new online experience to millions of talented and creative developers around the world. Join us for a full program – including a keynote and sessions – to quickly access the future of Apple platforms and chat with Apple engineers. Immerse yourself in an exciting learning experience and discover how to create your most innovative applications using the latest Apple technologies.
The new features around iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7 and other macOS 10.16 will therefore be announced remotely … We still have to know the dates of the event, which will always be launched by a traditional keynote. WWDC started last year on June 3, 2019.

Finally, here’s a comment from Phil Schiller, Apple vice president of marketing and the App Store:
The current health situation has necessitated the creation of a new format for WWDC 2020 that offers a comprehensive program with keynote and online sessions, providing an exceptional learning experience to our entire developer community, all over the world. We will share all the details in the coming weeks.
