A global giant when it comes to the world of technology, Apple has been around for several decades now, and has been one of the most influential names in global tech trends. Apple has been a master of product design and innovation, but they have also given equal importance to the software development. The WWDC conference is held every year to get the best of the brains from around the world and discuss software! Apple has just announced the WWDC 2017 dates. The event will be held from the 5th to the 9th of June in San Jose.
This is a refreshing change, as for the past 13 years, this event was being held in San Francisco. However, the WWDC event is no stranger to San Jose, as the first ever Worldwide Developers Conference was held here in 1990! Apple last held the event here in 2002. It’s been 15 years and this time, Apple says they are in talks with local businesses to ensure “very special experiences” around San Jose during the WWDC 2017.
The event has been moved to San Jose this year as it closer to the Cupertino based corporate office. However this is only a speculation and Apple has given no reasons. Phil Schiller, Apple’s head of marketing announced the dates. He stated that the WWDC 2017 will focus a lot on all four of Apple’s Operating Systems – iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS. Schiller also said that the event will be home to the same number of people as ever before. This indicates that some 5000 developers and 1000 engineers will be a part of the event this year too.
Apple will also be streaming the event live for those who will not be able to attend. Registrations for the WWDC 2017 will begin on the 27th of March, but the final list will be prepared on the basis of a lottery system. We are excited for the event, and it is highly anticipated that Apple will announce the iOS 11 and the macOS 10.13 at this event. Stay tuned with us for more updates on WWDC 2017.
