While we all assumed we would be seeing a new version of Apple’s operating systems at WWDC, we didn’t expect to see Apple actually confirm it.
Apple announced today in a press release that new versions of both iOS and OS X will be unveiled at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference on June 10 in San Francisco. ” We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC,” said Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller. Apple has traditionally unveiled its new operating systems at the conference in the past, so this news doesn’t come as much of a big surprise.
The conference lasts five days and is designed to teach developers for iOS and OS X cool and better ways to do their apps. Developers can buy tickets for the event starting tomorrow from the Apple’s online store for $1,599 USD a pop.
This year’s WWDC activities include:
* More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies;
* more than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps;
* the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app’s functionality, performance, quality and design;
* the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented;
* engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; and
* Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone®, iPad® and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.
Set your calendars for June 10 to see what Apple has in store for iOS and OS X.
