Apple on Wednesday morning announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will take place June 10th – 14th in San Francisco. The event will take place at its traditional Moscone West venue, with tickets going on sale tomorrow at 10:00 AM Pacific (1:00 PM Eastern) for $1,599.
WWDC is a weeklong event that features hundreds of hands-on workshops and technical sessions by over 1,000 Apple engineers. The sessions cover a wide range of topics about iOS and OS X technologies.
“We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
For the general public, WWDC has also traditionally served as a platform for Apple to introduce new software and hardware. Last year marked the unveiling of OS X Mountain Lion alongside a new lineup of Macs, including the MacBook Pro with Retina display, in addition to a preview of the iOS 6 software update. The year prior, the late Steve Jobs announced OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud at WWDC 2011. Keep it locked on iFans for comprehensive coverage of WWDC 2013 as it inches closer.
