Five rows of unique memojis gaze in amazement at three iMessage texts. A blue text bubble in the center reads “#WWDC21”. A white text bubble above it displays three party popper emojis. A white text bubble below it displays the clapping hands emoji in all six skin tones. This text has been “loved” with a pink heart.

There’s so much to explore and learn during WWDC21: It’s nice to have a place to start. We’ve put together a few resources we know will be useful for the week ahead.

Don’t miss the Keynote and Platforms State of the Union

WWDC21 kicks off on Monday, June 7 at 10 a.m. PDT with an in-depth look at the future of Apple platforms. Later that day, catch the Platforms State of the Union at 2 p.m. PDT and dive deep into the latest tools, technologies, and advances.

Meet pavilions

After the Keynote, visit the WWDC tab in the Developer app to take a peek at what’s in store for you this week. Browse a full list of all sessions, labs, and special activities, or — new for 2021 — check out the WWDC pavilions. Within a pavilion, you can browse a customized schedule for sessions and labs within that area, discover daily featured content, participate in coding challenges, explore activities and session collections, and find related documentation.

There are more than 200 sessions, technology and design labs, special activities, and so much more arriving throughout the week. Bookmark sessions you’re interested in and sign up for labs directly within the app. Don’t want to miss a thing? Make sure you’ve signed up for WWDC notifications, available on both iOS and Mac.

Connect in the labs, lounges, and forums with Apple engineers and designers

Members of the Apple Developer Program, Apple Developer Enterprise Program, or 2021 Swift Student Challenge winners can request a lab appointment with an Apple specialist, engineer, or designer for one-on-one guidance and conversation. You can explore the entire labs schedule on the WWDC tab or within a specific pavilion, request appointments directly within the app, and manage your schedule.

You can also connect with Apple engineers and designers around select topics in the Digital Lounges. Hosted by the Developer Tools, SwiftUI, Accessibility, and Machine Learning teams, the lounges invite you to participate in text-based discussions, ask questions about the latest technologies, get help with coding challenges, meet presenters, and more. Space is limited. Sign-ups are open now and available to members of the Apple Developer Program, Apple Developer Enterprise Program, or 2021 Swift Student Challenge winners.

And you can always ask questions about the latest technologies on the Apple Developer Forums.
