Apple has confirmed its plans for holding its World Wide Developer Conference in June. The World Wide Developer Conference focuses mainly on iOS and OS X development; however, in past years, Apple has used the event as a stage for announcing new iterations of the iPhone. Despite the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S being announced in the fall, it's thought Apple might announced the iPhone 5S at WWDC in time for a July release. This would (presumably) put the iPhone back on its old summer update cycle.
Apple announced this morning that WWDC 2013 will kick off June 10 and run through to June 14. The event will, as usual, take place at San Francisco's Moscone West. Speaking in a statement, senior VP of Worldwide Marketing offered no hints about any new hardware at the event.
"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."
Tickets for WWDC cost $1,600. Attendees can expect over 100 technical sessions from Apple engineers, over 100 hands-on labs (with more than 1,000 Apple engineers to provide assistance), the latest on OS X and iOS developments, lunchtime sessions, and the Apple Design Awards.
