Apple announced its Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) that will be held at San Jose, on June 4.
The confab is a one-stop shop for software developers across Apple’s varied and its growing products, that includes the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac computers and the new HomePod speaker. At the opening keynote, Apple mostly provides the audience with the peek into what they can expect on the software front for those platforms. It is the Beta operating system software which often hits soon after or during the show, followed by the final versions later in the year.
This year’s show will start on June 4 and end on June 8, and it will be taking place at McEnery Convention Center for the second time in a row.
The WWDC plays an important role in the software which will open for the developers to make apps with, such as SiriKit for the Siri personal assistant, HomeKit for home applications and ARKit for augmented-reality applications. Most probably Apple will also give a small view of what this year’s iOS 12 would bring.
The possibility of a new hardware announcement at WWDC is also there, as the company had announced their HomePod speaker and iMac Pro in the last year’s WWDC. We might also see the announcement of a new iPad or an updated MacBook too, however, do not expect the announcement of a new iPhone that will be done in September. The last iPhone which was unveiled at the WWDC was iPhone 4 in 2010.
Developers who are hoping to attend the WWDC can apply for the tickets at Apple’s WWDC website, until March 22 at 10 a.m. PT, after which a random selection process will be picked on who would get the offered tickets. Students and any person from science, technology, engineering or mathematics organizations can apply for the 350 free available tickets to the conference on Apple’s WWDC 18 Scholarships website starting March 26.
