As posted on Here’s when Apple will show us the next major versions of iOS and macOS
Mark your calendars, because Apple just announced its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will take place on from June 5-9 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose.
Apple is expected to announce new versions of iOS (11?), macOS (10.13?) and possibly software for tvOS and watchOS (4?).
The change in location from San Francisco to San Jose raises a few questions, but according to The Loop, Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said the move is “going to provide a great environment for developers attending the conference.” It’s also closer to Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, which means more engineers will be able to get on site for the conference.
The city change isn’t expected to affect attendance. Up to 5,000 developers and 1,000 engineers are expected to attend this year’s WWDC.
All eyes, of course, will be on the keynote, but there will be other events around the city Daring Fireball reports. “Apple is working with the city and San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo to stage events around the downtown area throughout the week.”
The official WWDC website doesn’t reveal anything in terms of the new software that will likely be announced for Apple’s platforms, but it reiterates the company’s belief that “technology alone is not enough” and that it “must intersect with the liberal arts and the humanities”.
WWDC 2017 dates are set, but registration for tickets won’t open until March 27 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. As per Apple’s WWDC website: “The opportunity to buy tickets to WWDC17 will be offered by random selection.”
