After holding its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in a digital format for the past two years amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple is now asking the developers whether they would be open to attending future WWDC events in-person (via MacRumors).
Due to the openness and inclusiveness of the WWDC’s digital format, it has been praised by the majority of community members. The virtual event includes a pre-recorded keynote from Apple Park and several sessions are also available online for free.
As opposed to an in-person WWDC event, the digital format has allowed Apple to reach millions more developers and users worldwide.
Now, as the world begins to see the light at the end of the tunnel, Apple is possibly planning to return to an in-person conference next year while still retaining some aspects of a digital format.
One of the questions as part of this year’s end of WWDC survey reads, “How likely would you be to attend an in-person conference after experiencing an all-online event?”
What do you guys think about the digital format of Apple’s annual developers’ event?
