Yesterday, Apple announced that it will hold its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2013 from June 10 to June 14 at San Francisco’s Moscone West conference center. This time Apple has promised to deliver attendees a new build of iOS and OS X. It is presumed that the WWDC 2013 conference will feature the unveiling of iOS 7.
Last year, Apple unveiled the current major release of OS X, 10.8 Mountain Lion, in an uncharacteristically subdued way. Rather than holding an event, the company quietly showed the software to the press and announced the software was surely coming. But it is expected that at the WWDC 2013 conference, Apple will unveil its next version of iOS platform, iOS 7, for iPhone and iPad.
Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, said in a statement, “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
We have come to know that the WWDC 2013 activities will include the following:
- More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies.
- More than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps.
- The latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app’s functionality, performance, quality and design.
- The opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented.
- Engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment.
- Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone, iPad and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.
