Apple announced on Thursday that it will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose from June 3 through June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center.
The event, now in its 30th year, will give attendees insight into the future of these platforms and work alongside the Apple engineers behind the technologies and frameworks developers rely on. This year's program will feature technical sessions, hands-on labs and guest speakers to provide Apple's existing developer community and the next generation of app developers.
"WWDC is Apple's biggest event of the year. It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps. We can't wait to get together with them and share what's next."
Apple notes that there are more than 1.4 billion devices now running iOS, macOS, watchOS or tvOS.
Developers can apply for tickets today through March 20 at 5 p.m. PDT through the WWDC website. Tickets are issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of their application status by March 21 at 5 p.m. PDT. Others can live-stream the conference on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV as well as through the Apple Developer website.
Up to 350 WWDC scholarships are available in 2019, providing students and members of all STEM organizations an opportunity to earn a free ticket and lodging for WWDC. Details on how to apply are now available on the WWDC website.
Apple will undoubtedly show developers what will become "iOS 13" and "macOS 10.15." The awaited redesigned Mac Pro may make an appearance as well, similar to how the iMac Pro debuted.
