Each year, Apple holds a very highly anticipated conference for developers of the iOS platform. This comes in the form of WWDC; the World Wide Developers Conference. This, to many enthusiasts, has come to mean the announcement date for exciting new products, updates, and software enhancements from Apple. Additionally, WWDC hosts many developer workshops and sessions for experienced developers, as well as those who need a little extra help getting their software just right.
At this year’s conference the release date for Mac OSX Mountain Lion, a refresh to the iMac and MacBook Pro line, and, if we are lucky, the new iPhone, will all be revealed. It is speculated, however, that the announcement of the new iPhone will be pushed back to Fall of 2012, due to rumored part supply issues from manufacturers and to take advantage of the upcoming holiday season. As usual, Apple doesn’t release any information about what they have up their sleeve for the big event. So for now, rumors must remain rumors.
WWDC 2012 will be held in San Francisco, California on June 11th-15th. Hoping to score a ticket? Unfortunately, the tickets sold out in an astonishing two hours the day they went on sale. More amazingly, the price of admission was around that of a new MacBook Pro, making this an event only for serious developers and companies.
For those who aren’t fortunate enough to attend, the videos of workshop sessions will be posted on Apple’s website shortly after the closing of the conference.
What do you hope to see from WWDC this year? Leave you thoughts in the comments below.
