Apple reportedly offering WWDC tickets to select developers after quick sell-outAfter selling out of tickets to its Worldwide Developers Conference in less than two minutes, Apple is reportedly calling a select number of developers with a chance to purchase.
As noted by MacRumors, Apple has been reaching out to registered members of its developer program with offers to purchase WWDC 2013 tickets after a record sellout saw all passes sell out in less than two minutes.
A tweet from Red Sweater Software's Daniel Jalkut was first to confirm Apple's move:
Apple is now calling some folks who didnt get a WWDC ticket earlier. Not sure how many, but stay by your phone if you had tried and failed. Daniel Jalkut (@danielpunkass) April 25, 2013
Other developers have tweeted or posted on their personal blogs that Apple is contacting these people directly with ticket offers. It is unknown how many developers are part of the second chance campaign.
For those who didn't get a chance to purchase ticket and failed to receive a call from Apple, the company will be making video recordings of all WWDC 2013 session available online to registered developers.
WWDC 2013 will take place between June 10 through 14 at Moscone West in San Francisco, Calif. In an unprecedented move, Apple plans to reveal both iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 at the conference, with beta builds of the pre-release software set to be provided to developers at that time.
