WWDC 2020 Apple rolled out a redesign of its developer forums Friday intended to make them easier to navigate, and help coders find answers they need.

This comes just days before the opening of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday.

Apple Developer Forums get a facelift

The goal of the Apple Developer Forums is to put macOS and iOS developers in contact with Apple engineers and each other so everyone can give and receive help.

And today, the Mac maker announced that these forums have been “completely redesigned, so they’re more engaging to use, automatically surface the most relevant content, offer simpler navigation, and make it easier to categorize and search for content.”

Getting ready for WWDC 2020

During next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference, more than 1,000 Apple engineers will be participating in the forums to discuss the new technologies that’ll be unveiled starting Monday morning. This is an attempt to make up for WWDC 2020 happening entirely online to help slow the spread fo COVID-19.

Anyone can read the discussions in the Apple Developer Forums, but only registered devs can post questions.

This isn’t all that Apple did to get devs ready for WWDC. On Monday, it finally released a macOS version of the Apple Developer app. This guide to iOS, macOS, tvOS, watchOS and all the other Apple platforms was previously available only for iOS.
