Apple last month announced WWDC 2022, a new edition of its annual developer conference. This year, however, Apple had developers register for an in-person event at Apple Park. Now the company is sending the notification to developers chosen to participate in the special event.
Apple personal events were suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This time, while WWDC 2022 will be pre-recorded and completely online, Apple will open its campus to a limited number of developers who can watch the opening keynote along with the company’s engineers and designers.
Like registration for other WWDC events before the pandemic, developers interested in attending the event had to register through the Apple Developer website. Due to multiple restrictions, including inviting fewer people to prevent the spread of COVID-19, registration for this special WWDC 2022 event was free.
Entries to participate in the event were open from May 9 to May 11. Now Apple is letting developers know whether or not they were invited — which the company says was a “random selection process.”
Selected developers “must follow Apple’s health and safety protocols.” Apple says a negative COVID-19 test is required no more than three days before the event to enter Apple Park. However, wearing a mask is “currently” optional as this can change at any time due to local laws.
In addition to the opening keynote, invited developers will have the opportunity to be the first to visit the new Developer Center in Apple Park. WWDC 2022 begins June 6, with online sessions through June 10. More details can be found on Apple’s website.
