The annual Swift Student Challenge is a coding challenge that tasks students with creating an interactive scene in the Swift Playgrounds app. Apple said winners would receive exclusive WWDC 2021 outerwear, which appears to consist of a beanie and a pullover sweater.


Winners also received a set of WWDC 2021 pins, including the Finder icon on Mac, a "Make it beta" message bubble, and others, plus a one-year Apple Developer Program membership if they have reached the age of majority in their country.

WWDC 2021 begins next Monday, June 7 with a Keynote at 10 a.m. Pacific Time. Apple is expected to unveil major new software updates, including iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS 12, watchOS 8, and tvOS 15. Read our WWDC 2021 roundup for more details.

Yes so much of Apple software is beta . And we are all testing it in hopes that someday it won't be :-).

I can tell I have not had my coffee yet this morning. I saw the 21 on the t-shirt and immediately started to think “oh, wonder what that is hinting at? What secret message?” It took an embarassingly long time for that light bulb to go on.

I wonder where this apparel was made, ethically, in the USA, or just ‘designed in California’. ?

I really wonder why Apple doesn't do brand swag like other companies do.

I remember seeing an Apple bike jersey on ebay like decades ago, back when they were selling swag, and I even have an Apple shirt around here somewhere (if it hasn't been tossed by the wife) It's a 'little 'snug, being a medium.

But they did all the usual swag, for those not aware. I actually still have a cordura Apple swag notebook shoulder carry bag. I just loved it so, I couldn't see tossing it. I've got a couple pins, and an 'Apple Euro II' system placard, and some POS end cap plastic inserts. Bunch of stuff.

I'd like to get an Apple bike jersey. What could be more awesome than riding a hideously expensive bike wearing the jersey of a generally really expensive computer brand. I passed on the Microsoft one when I was out there a few years ago. It looked like someone ate a bunch of brown tone paint splotches and barfed them up on a paper bag, really awful...:confused:
