Apple announced its all-online WWDC conference in March and recently confirmed the schedule for the week, starting with its customary June 7 keynote. From that report:

With WWDC21 now just two weeks away Apple has confirmed the schedule for its online developer event. Thinks will kick off June 7 with a 10 a.m. PDT streamed keynote that will likely include the unveiling of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and tons more. The opening keynote is always the highlight of WWDC and it's likely to be a packed one this year. Unlike the rest of the conference, the keynote will be streamed to everyone via YouTube and other platforms.

According to recent rumors that Keynote could include the reveal of Apple's brand new MacBook Pro featuring new Apple silicon and a mini-LED display.
