Apple announced on Tuesday that it will hold its 26th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 8 through June 12 at San Francisco’s Moscone West.
“The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide,” Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, said, in a statement announcing the conference. “We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create.”
Last year, Apple used WWDC to provide the first glimpse of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, and it’s likely we’ll get preview of the next iOS and OS X versions at this year’s conference.
Apple said that this year’s WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies and fine tune their apps, as well as the Apple Design Awards which showcase the best new apps in the last year.
Developers can apply for tickets via the WWDC website now through Friday, April 17 at 10 a.m. PDT. Apple said tickets will be issued to attendees through a random selection process, and developers will know the status of their application by Monday, April 20 at 5 p.m. PDT.
This year, Apple will be live streaming select WWDC sessions throughout the week onApple’s website and the WWDC app. Like last year, videos from all technical sessions will also be available by the end of each day. Access to these videos is usually reserved for registered iOS and Mac developers
