WWDC 2020 will include a keynote address, a Platforms State of the Union, 100+ engineering sessions, all-new Developer Forums, and 1-on-1 labs with more than 1,000 Apple engineers, amongst others. This year’s conference will also be their “biggest one to date”, as they will virtually connect with “more than 23 million” in the Apple developer community.
