After the primary keynote, Platforms State of the Union will begin at 2PM PDT on June 22nd. At Platforms State of the Union, you’ll hear directly from Apple engineering leaders as they dive deeper into the latest advances across iOS, iPasOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. State of the Union will be available on demand via the Apple Developer app and website.

Starting June 23rd and running through June 26th, Apple will host 100+ engineering sessions. With these, developers will have the ability to learn how to build the next generation of apps with more than 100 technical and design-focused sessions. Apple says videos will be posted each day at 10am PDT and will be available on the Apple Developer app and website.

Apple will also be hosting 1-on-1 Developer Labs by appointment. Apple Developer Program members will be able to request an appointment (as space is available) 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.

Apple will also be releasing a redesign of the Apple Developer Forums on June 18th, where it will connect the developer community with more than 1,000 Apple engineers to answer questions and engage in technical discussions. Anyone will be able to search and view the forum, and Developer Program members will be able to post their own questions and learn directly from Apple experts.

Going back a bit, on June 16th, Apple will celebrate student developers from all over the world with the announcement of finalists in the Swift Student Challenge, an opportunity for students of all ages to showcase their love of coding by creating their own Swift playground.

Apple encourages developers to download the Apple Developer app where additional information will be shared ahead of June 22nd, but mentions information will also be made available on the Apple Developer website and by email.
