Apple announced that its 26th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will kick off on June 8th and run through June 12th at San Francisco’s Moscone West. WWDC will feature more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies and fine tune their apps, as well as the Apple Design Awards which showcase the best new apps in the last year.
“We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
