The 33rd annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set to begin with a keynote next Monday, and the event is now featured on Apple’s dedicated events website. As with many Apple events, if you visit the page on an iPhone or iPad, you can see an interactive augmented reality Easter egg.
For WWDC 2022, Apple has created a set of trading cards that you can view in augmented reality. Once placed on a surface using the AR interface, you can tap on the card deck to open it and see an array of colorful Memoji faces.
Tap on any of the available cards to flip it over so you can see the Memoji character in more detail, and if you swipe it you can flip back to the cards to see the other options. Each time you open the deck of cards you will get three separate cards and there are at least nine card options. This is one of the most detailed interactive AR experiences Apple has designed for any of its events, as many only featured creative Apple logos.
To see the AR Easter egg, open the events website and tap on Memojis. From there, you can scan the area around you to see the deck of cards in action, or you can view it in “Object” mode to get a clearer picture of what it looks like without having to navigate your physical environment.
WWDC 2022 will begin at 10:00 a.m. PT on Monday, June 6. In addition to streaming on YouTube, the event can be watched through the events webpage and in the Apple TV app. If you are unable to watch, you can tune in to the MacRumors blog live on the site or follow our MacRumorsLive Twitter account.
The event will see the introduction of new software including iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, macOS 13 and tvOS 16, and it’s possible we could see new hardware like the MacBook Air.
