Apple announced on Monday that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, where it has traditionally introduced the next generation iPhone, this year from June 6 through June 10 at San Francisco's Moscone West.
Apple has sent a reminder to its developers that the company's new storefront for web extensions will be opening to the public soon, providing an App Store-like experience for customizing and extending the new Safari 5 browser.
An abundance of Wi-Fi hotspots inside the Moscone Center on Monday caused technical difficulties for Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs, which resulted in some frustration for the showman, renowned for his usually polished presentations.
Apple said Monday that its new iPad device helped the company garner a 22% share of the eBook market in just over two months, selling more than 5 million digital books to early adopters. An update to the device's iBook software will soon build on that success with support for PDF, bookmarking, and more.
Speaking at Apple's annual developers conference on Monday, chief executive Steve Jobs said his company's industry-leading App Store has generated developers more than $1 billion in revenues while serving up over 5 billion app downloads since its inception two years ago.
Apple has hung even more banners inside the Moscone Center in San Francisco for its forthcoming Worldwide Developer Conference, but they don't reveal any details about what the company plans to announce on Monday.
While the new iPhone is expected to be the centerpiece of Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, one analyst said Friday that Apple may also announced a cloud-based iTunes service, as well as Mac Pro and MacBook Air upgrades.
As expected, the first day of Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference will include a keynote from Steve Jobs, when it is believed the chief executive will introduce the fourth-generation iPhone.
