We will be sharing all of the details in the weeks ahead.”Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing

Craig Federighi, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering said “With all of the new products and technologies we’ve been working on, WWDC 2020 is going to be big. I look forward to our developers getting their hands on the new code and interacting in entirely new ways with the Apple engineers building the technologies and frameworks that will shape the future across all Apple platforms.”Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering
Apple haven’t shared any more details on WWDC 2020, and the official website says that more information will be coming soon.
