As part of its annual survey given to developers at the end of WWDC, Apple is asking whether, following two years of the conference being held in a digital format due to the response to COVID-19, developers would be open to attending an in-person conference.
As in 2020, Apple this year hosted its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in an all-online, virtual format.
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?”
While not totally indicative, it is worth noting that Apple is beginning to receive and collect feedback regarding the community’s outlook towards possibly returning to the in-person conference. Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman has previously noted that Apple is contemplating the idea, and does plan to hold its first in-person event since the global health crisis began in the coming months.
MacDailyNews Take: Do both. In-person for those who can attend and virtual for those who cannot make it to WWDC in person. That would offer developers the best of both worlds.
