Alongside those developers who paid for their place at Apple’s 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference are some 350 or so students who won scholarships to attend …


Students were welcomed at an orientation yesterday at the Steve Jobs Theater, whose speakers included Tim Cook and Lisa Jackson.

Winners had a photo op afterwards with Cook, and the opportunity to demo their apps to him. Apple’s CEO tweeted a link to a short video of students explaining their current or favorite app.

Scholarship students also got one extra memento of the day: Appleosophy reports that each was handed a free pair of AirPods on their way out.

You can follow our live coverage of the conference at our WWDC 2018 hub.
