Just days before WWDC 2022, the lucky winners of this year’s Swift Student Challenge began receiving free WWDC 2022 gifts and Apple AirPods Pro. Winners also receive a one-year membership in the Apple Developer Program.


Souvenirs include a WWDC22-branded jacket, a yellow Apple logo beanie, and a custom WWDC22 pin set.

As part of the prize package, winners received a card from Apple that reads as follows:

Your coding skills are tested, and passed with flying colors. You are a confirmed winner of the WWDC22 Swift Challenge. This Swift Playgrounds app project you created demonstrates your commitment to programming and your efforts to bring your design to life. At Apple, we value these qualities and are pleased to present you with this exclusive award for your hard work. We appreciate your enthusiasm for Apple’s technologies and look forward to supporting your future coding efforts.

The annual Swift Student Challenge is a coding challenge that tasks students with creating a Swift Playgrounds project around a topic of their choice.

WWDC 2022 will be held online from June 6 to June 10, with sessions and other content available on the Apple website and in the Apple Developer app free of charge. During the keynote, Apple is expected to announce its latest software platforms, including iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16, and there’s always a chance to announce a hardware or two at the event.

There will be one personal component of WWDC 2022, where Apple will host a special day at Apple Park on June 6 for some randomly selected developers to watch Keynote and Platforms State of the Union videos and tour some areas of the campus.
