WWDC 2023 Includes Special Event at Apple Park: How to Request to Attend

WWDC 2023 will be held online from Monday, June 5 through Friday, June 9, but there will also be an in-person component. Like last year, randomly selected developers and students will be able to attend Apple Park on the Monday to watch the WWDC keynote video, meet some of the teams at Apple, enjoy evening activities, and more.

How to Request to Attend

To request to attend the special event at Apple Park, head to the WWDC 2023 website and click or tap the request button. You will be prompted to sign into your Apple Developer account and must be enrolled in Apple's Developer Program for $99 per year, or have a complimentary membership, such as by winning last year's Swift Student Challenge.

Next, review the information provided on the next screen, such as your name and email address, and submit the request to Apple.

Apple says invitations will be allocated by a random selection process and are non-transferrable. Apple will notify individuals who are selected to attend the event by April 5 at 6 p.m. Pacific Time. Travel and accommodations are not included.

Who is Eligible

  • Apple Developer Program members (including Enterprise Program)
  • Swift Student Challenge winners (2020 to 2022)

2023 Swift Student Challenge applicants can opt in to be included in a separate random selection process for winners of the challenge when they submit their entry. Apple says up to 350 winners will be selected for the challenge.

Please make it an in-person event!
All in-person and Apple needs to consider inviting general public too.

Why was the picture changed?

It showed people under the sun watching the presentation but now it is a picture of Tim Cook with people under the sun...
The photo was altered by the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Would have been better if it was a complete in person event.

Feels like an early announcement of this event. Building hype?
Apple needs hype. They’ve been a snooze fest. When MR has been reporting nothing but beta releases, price deals, and a yellow iPhone as news, you know it’s been pretty quiet. Apple had almost nothing cool before Christmas and tumbleweeds for 1Q 2023. They need to give us a reason to get excited about their products and a reason to upgrade.
