WWDC dates confirmed!

Apple today confirmed the dates for this years Worldwide Developers Conference, set to commence June 8th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Although Apple is always pretty vague with what the focus of each WWDC will be, all guesstimates point towards iOS 9 and OS X 10.11.

 

From the Sauce- Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing:

 

“The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide,” said Philip Schiller, . “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.”

 

Developers will flock to the 5 day show to take part in technical sessions, hands on labs, awards, and to attend the all-important key-note run by Tim Cook, CEO. In order to do so, they must apply for tickets in a lottery based system.

 

Are you a developer? You can apply here, beginning today until April 17th at 10:00AM PT, however you must have signed up to the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program or Mac Developer Program as of the WWDC 2015 announcement on April 14 at 5:30 AM PT to be eligible for a chance at tickets.

 

 

THEN, if you’re selected, you’ll be told by April 20 at 5:00PM. The tickets will cost $1599, but presumably are well worth their weight in clams. WWDC Scholarships are also available to students and members of participating STEM organizations around the world.

 

Apple will be streaming several WWDC sessions live for developers that are unable to attend, and the Keynote should be live streamed on the Apple Website and on Apple TV.

 

Other than updates to the operating systems, Apple is expected to announce the new Apple TV, the revamped Beats Music streaming service, and possibly the new iPhone updates.

 

 

Do you think anything amazing will be announced at WWDC? Or do you think they’ve used up all their 2015 allotment of amazingness with the Apple Watch?

 

Also important to note: Apparently selfie sticks are banned at the Moscone center. *gasp*
