Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference
Apple has officially scheduled the 29th edition of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference to be held for June 4th – June 8th, 2018. The event will be held at the same venue as last year’s event – at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. Apple is expected to introduce the next generation of iPhone and iPad OS at this event. Newer versions of macOS, watchOS, and tvOS are also expected. And an updated Retina MacBook, as well as new iPad models, may also be introduced.
Last year’s event was packed with announcements, including the HomePod, a new iMac Pro, iOS 11, a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4, and ARKit. This year we’re expecting to hear more about the future of macOS and iOS, and it’s possible we’ll see those cheaper iPads and MacBooks that have been rumored recently. – Source: theverge.com
Students are not left out of the Apple developer community as up to 350 students and STEM organization members aged 13 or older will be given the chance to win free tickets by just creating Swift playgrounds: a revolutionary and powerful programming language created by Apple and used by the professionals to build today’s most popular apps. Entry submission for that purpose ends by April 1, while successful students will be contacted by April 20th.
The is mostly a developer-focused event and those wishing to attend the event will have until Thursday, March 22, at 10 am PT for registration, after which tickets will be issued using a random selection process. Tickets price remains same as with the previous year, and that means you will have to part with $1,599 if you must attend.
For those that can’t make it to the event, Apple says the event will be lived streamed via all major social streaming services such as Youtube and Apple’s own streaming service. The event kicks off June 4, however, the timing has not been specified by Apple yet.
