Apple would be hosting it’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference, 2014 from June 2nd to 6th in San Francisco, USA. The conference is usually the stage where Apple talks about the future of iOS and OSX to its developers giving us a sneak preview into what’s coming up in future. Last year at WWDC, we got a look at the all new iOS 7 but it was not until third quarter that a public release of the same was made and we can expect some interesting action this year especially as wearables from Apple are rumored to be right on the horizon.
Apple wrote in the official Press release, “At this year’s five-day conference, developers from around the world will learn about the future of iOS and OS X®, giving them the latest tools and technologies to continue creating the most innovative apps for the millions of iOS and Mac® customers worldwide. WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies and fine tune their apps, as well as the Apple Design Awards which showcase the best apps from the past year.”
Phil Schiller, the Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing said, “We have the most amazing developer community in the world and have a great week planned for them. Every year the WWDC audience becomes more diverse, with developers from almost every discipline you can imagine and coming from every corner of the globe. We look forward to sharing with them our latest advances in iOS and OS X so they can create the next generation of great apps.”
If you are a developer and are interested in picking a ticket for WWDC 2014, you can already apply for the same all the way upto April 7th, 2014. However, just like Google I/O this year, the selection of who gets a ticket will be made with a random draw, so pretty much nobody is guaranteed a seat at the mega event. We have already seen some leaks of iOS 8, so it would definitely be discussed in greater detail and it would be interesting to see what Apple has planned for the next Mac OSX update.
