Apple announces WWDC 2013 keynote for Monday, June 10Apple has officially confirmed that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off with a keynote presentation on Monday, June 10, where it is expected to showcase iOS 7 and OS X 10.9.
WWDC has traditionally started with a keynote to introduce new products, and so Thursday's announcement is no surprise. It is, however, the first official confirmation from Apple that the event will take place.
The presentation will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif., Apple confirmed to AllThingsD on Thursday. As is par for the course, Apple did not say what topics would be discussed during the presentation, or even who would be presenting.
But in a rare move, the company has already revealed that it will show off the next major releases of both iOS and OS X at WWDC 2013. Upgraded MacBooks featuring Intel's new Haswell processors are also expected to be introduced at the event.
This year's WWDC will take place June 10 through 14 in San Francisco. The conference's technical sessions will be given by more than 1,000 Apple engineers to the developers who attend.
Tickets to WWDC 2013 sold out in a matter of seconds when they went on sale in April, making it the fastest sellout in the conference's history. For developers who can't attend, Apple's technical sessions will also be made available to stream online.
