Apple last month opened applications for the 2024 Swift Student Challenge. The annual competition encourages developers to show off their coding skills by creating playground projects. This year, Swift Student Challenge winners will be invited to attend the WWDC 2024 kick-off event at Apple Park.

This year’s WWDC will take place from June 10 to 14. Similar to previous Apple events, the WWDC 2024 sessions will be pre-recorded and streamed online – although the press and invited developers will have the opportunity to watch the opening keynote at an in-person event.

Apple is expected to unveil new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and also visionOS at WWDC 2024. Rumors suggest that iOS 18 will introduce significant changes, including multiple AI-based features and a new way of organizing the Home Screen. It’s unclear whether the company plans to introduce new hardware at the event.
