There will be more details in the next few days. Only Apple is still holding on to its own developer conference WWDC in June 2020.

Consumers were also mostly provided with innovations here. In order to ensure the safety and health of the developers, the corona virus has now been decided not to host the event in Seattle. Microsoft is already working on an alternative.
