Apple Inc. said its annual WWDC conference will be online-only this year, scrapping a gathering that usually attracts thousands of software developers.

“WWDC 2020 will take on an entirely new online format,” Apple said in a statement Friday, citing the “current health situation.” The event will still have a full agenda, including an online keynote address and classes for developers to learn about new tools and software, the company added.
