So it turns out that some lucky Apple developers will be able to see WWDC 2022 in person, sort of.

This week, registration opened for a limited number of slots allowing developers around the world to attend an in-person event at Apple Park in California during the June 6 event where they will watch the pre-recorded keynote with other Apple engineers and employees. Due to Covid safety protocols, the number of entrants is limited and selection from a pool of applicants is entirely random, according to 9to5 Mac.

According to Apple: “We’re hosting a special one-day experience at Apple Park on June 6 to kick off WWDC22. Gather with other members of the developer community to watch the keynote and videos about the state-of-the-union platforms alongside Apple engineers and experts, explore the all-new Developer Center, and more—we look forward to connecting with you in person.

“This celebration marks the start of an inspiring week of sessions, labs and trade shows – all online and with more activity than ever before.”


Analysis: How to get there…

While we’re fairly certain that Apple was hoping to hold an all-in-person WWDC 2022, it’s understandable that we’re still dealing with a pandemic –
particularly in the United States where the total number of Covid deaths passed the one million mark this month.

Still, in-person events are starting to show signs of returning to something approaching normal, though we may never fully return to the carefree pre-pandemic days when 100,000 people crammed into a center relatively small congress.

But we are getting there. Whether that’s a good or bad thing remains to be seen, but we’re getting there nonetheless.
