Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference locked in

20 Apr 15

Apple will hold its 26th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year from June 8-12 at San Francisco’s Moscone West, with more sessions than ever before streamed to developers.

At WWDC, Apple’s developer community will be able to learn about the future of iOS and OS X, which will prepare them to continue to create apps.

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 new apps in the last year.

“The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide,” says Philip Schiller, Apple Worldwide Marketing senior vice president.

“We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create,” Schiller says.

Developers who applied for tickets via the WWDC website will know the status of their application by April 21 at 12 p.m. NZST.

There will also be up to 350 WWDC Scholarships available, giving students and members of participating STEM organisations around the world the chance to earn a free ticket.

Select Worldwide Developers Conference sessions will be live streamed throughout the week via the WWDC website and the WWDC app, giving more developers around the world access to the latest information in real time.

Videos from all technical sessions will also be available by the end of each day.
