Apple last month announced WWDC 2022, another edition of its annual developer conference. This year, however, Apple let developers register for an in-person event at Apple Park. Now the company is sending the notice to the developers who have been chosen to participate in the special event.
In-person Apple events had been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This time, although WWDC 2022 is pre-recorded and fully online, Apple will open its campus to a limited number of developers who can watch the keynote with the company’s engineers and designers.
As with 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 WWDC 2022 special event was free.
Submissions to participate in the event were open from May 9-11. Now Apple notifies developers whether or not they have been 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 dated less than three days before the event is required to enter Apple Park. However, wearing a mask is “currently” optional, as this may change at any time due to local laws.
In addition to the keynote, guest developers will have the chance to be the first to visit the new Developer Center at Apple Park. WWDC 2022 begins June 6, with online sessions through June 10. More details can be found on Apple’s website.
