Last year developers had half a day to get their WWDC ticket purchases in before the conference sold out, this year tickets sold out in just two paltry minutes. Apple restrictions limited sales to one per person and five tickets per organization. Tickets cost $1,599.00. It doesn’t really matter though, they’re already gone.
Apple’s tickets sold out 95 percent faster than Google’s tickets for its own annual I/O developer conference, which is taking place May 15 — 17 this year, and which took 49 minutes to sell out. I/O 2012 tickets sold out in just 30 minutes, however, as things took longer this time because of a general inability to complete the check-out process for a large percentage of users early on.
Tickets went on sale today at 10 AM Pacific. If you missed that news yesterday, you’re out of luck. Thankfully Apple will be making conference videos available during the conference this year so developers can check-in and get up to date without delay.
WWDC will take place between June 10-14 this year. Apple plans to show off iOS 7, and a future version of OS X.
