Apple today announced that it will hold its annual World-Wide Developer’s Conference from June 2-6. Apple’s conference, held specifically for developers, is the primary venue where the company shows off it’s latest software. Last year, Apple announced iOS 7, Mavericks, and the Mac Pro.
Tickets for this year’s WWDC will be distributed in a different method. In previous years, the conference sold out rapidly (only 72 seconds last year). Apple is using random selection this year to increase the opportunity for developers. Google’s annual I/O conference is also following a similar fashion.
This year, Apple touts design more than ever, with a colorful new banner (see above). The company emphasizes design, games, and new features such as iBeacons.
Tickets are available right now for registration – developers can enter for a chance to get a ticket which will be randomly selected on April 7.
Displaying a large image of the San Francisco Yerba Buena Center, Apple today announced that it will be streaming the event live to those running Safari on an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, or Mac. Users of other browsers will not be able to view the keynote. Apple will also be live streaming the keynote to Apple TV’s.
Apple is expected to release new iPads, MacBook Pros, the Mac Pro, OS X Mavericks, and more. AppleRumors.NET will have full coverage of the event as well as reviews and more.
Apple today sent our invitations for the press to attend a October 22 event in San Francisco.
The rumor mill correctly predicted this event and the exact sate about a week ago. Expected to debut on October 22 is a new MacBook Pro lineup, the new Mac Pro, two new iPads (a refresh to the iPad 4 and iPad Mini), as well as a new Apple TV, OS X Mavericks, and an updated iWork Suite.
Apple’s invitation is colorful (as with the last) and shows many small “stems” throughout the picture.
