Tim Cook says WWDC20 attracted 22 million viewers
Tim Cook has said that this year’s all-online Worldwide Developers Conference attracted 22 million viewers across all of Apple’s streams, touting the success of the company’s virtual week-long event.
“Apple set a new standard for what online events can achieve,” Cook said. “22 million viewers across all of Apple’s streams. More than 72 hours of video content for developers — three full days. 4,500 person-to-person labs.”
WWDC20 saw Apple announce major updates to iPhone with iOS 14, enhancements to iPad with iPadOS 14, a redesign to macOS with macOS Big Sur, and much more. WWDC20 also saw Apple announce the transition from Intel chips to custom Apple Silicon processors for its future Mac lineup.
The announcement was made as part of Apple’s Q3 2020 financial earnings results, which saw the company report quarterly revenue of $59.7 billion, an increase of 11 percent from the year-ago quarter amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.
