Apple has announced that WWDC 2018, the Worldwide Developer Conference where Apple will preview iOS 12 and the next edition of macOS, will happen on June 4th in San Jose, California. That leaves the WWDC 2018 as a potential launch pad.
Apple is expected to announce iOS 12 and the next version of macOS at WWDC. The venue will be the same as that of past year, the McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, California.
iOS 12 will be the main event at WWDC 2018, during the first day of the conference, because it is the operating system for Apple's best-selling products, but it might not bring in many new features.
Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) is one of the key tech events of the calendar, as the company shows off its latest software and hardware updates.
The event serves as a common ground for developers to share and create new experiences on Apple's platforms like the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac and even the Home Pod. There's been a number of critical iOS 11 problems that have left too many Apple devices laggy and buggy.
Now, with WWDC such an insanely popular yearly event, there's no guarantee you can just get a ticket.
In order to purchase a ticket to WWDC, developers must have signed up to be a member of the Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program as of this morning, March 13.
Developers hoping to attend have until March 22 to sign up online (tickets cost $1,599), before some 5,000 lucky participants are selected at random.
As always, Apple's support of the educational sector, which goes back decades, sees students being "an integral part of the Apple developer community".
