Apple has set the dates for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference: June 5-9 in San Jose, California. Each year at the WWDC, Apple outlines the new versions of its mobile and desktop operating systems. This gives developers the opportunity to create new experiences for them ahead of their public release, and lets consumers know what's in the pipeline.
Assuming history is a precedent, we expect Apple to reveal details about the next versions of iOS and macOS. In addition, the company intends to discuss developer APIs for Siri, smart home accessories, health and auto technology. In this way, the WWDC engenders new innovations and apps for the entire Apple lineup: iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Macs.
This year's venue – the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose – is a departure from the San Francisco location where Apple has hosted this event for the last several years, but it is closer to the company's Cupertino headquarters.
Developers interested in attending will have the opportunity to apply for tickets through Apple in the (Northern hemisphere) Spring. For everyone else, the conference will also stream live through the WWDC website and apps.
