Apple Announces WWDC 2012, Tickets Sell Out
Apple’s widely anticipated annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) has been assigned an official dater to. The five-day conference, where Apple introduced the original iPhone through the iPhone 4, will take place from June 11-15 in the in San Francisco, California at the Moscone Center.
WWDC has been the previous venue for product announcements, new iterations of Apple’s two operating systems and more. This year, we could potentially see the introduction of iOS 6, a new version of OS X and perhaps the next-generation iPhone, though current speculation points towards a fall release of Apple’s prized handset.
This year’s event is open to members of Apple’s iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program. The price for admission is $1599 and, astonishingly, tickets sold out just a mere two hours after Apple official announced the event (link below). Via personal experience, I’ve seen tons of developers venting about not knowing the dates for the conference previously, on Twitter; this is the obvious reason for the quick sellout of the tickets.
Phillip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing has teased us slightly:
“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers. The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world.”
