Apple Reveals WWDC 2020 Schedule

Basically no surprises here. The keynote is Monday June 22 at 10 am PT, and the Platforms State of the Union (the technical details keynote) is at 2 pm PT. Same as usual.

Engineering sessions:

June 23 to 26 — Starting June 23, developers will have the ability to learn how to build the next generation of apps with more than 100 technical and design-focused sessions helmed by Apple engineers. Videos will be posted each day at 10 a.m. PDT and will be available in the Apple Developer app on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, as well as on the Apple Developer website.

So they’ll roll out sessions throughout the week, as usual, with each day’s batch released at 10 am.

One big question I’ve had is how they’ll do one-on-one labs. Sounds like it’s basically a lottery:

Developers will be able to request an appointment with the Apple engineers who helped build the latest advances in Apple platforms, offering one-on-one technical guidance and in-depth details on how to implement new features. Developer Labs will be open to Apple Developer Program members as space is available.

No word about Apple Design Awards.
