Apple has announced the dates for its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, where it is likely to unveil the next version of iOS, the next new iPad, and possibly a new iPhone roadmap.
Apple yesterday announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) from June 10 to June 14 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. At the five-day conference, developers from around the world will learn about the future of iOS and OS X. WWDC will also feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by over 1 000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies, as well as the popular Apple Design Awards, a showcase of the most outstanding apps available through the App Store and Mac App Store. Tickets for this year’s WWDC go on sale today.
