Between 2003 and 2016, Apple had organized its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. However, the WWDC 2017 was kept at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. Fresh information revealed by an unnamed person who is aware of Apple’s plans has said that the WWDC 2018 will be held at the same spot this year.
Apple has been keeping its WWDC event in the month of June since several years. This year too it will happen in the same month. The company will be using the McEnery Convention Center for other events in June such as O’Reilly Velocity Conference that will be held between June 11 and 14, DataWorks Summit and Hadoop Summit that will be organized between June 17 and 21 and Sensors Expo & Conference between June 26 and 28. This indicates that the WWDC is likely to be held before the O’Reilly Velocity Conference.
It is speculated that the WWDC 2018 will be held between June 4 and 8. The company is likely to unleash iOS 12 as well as newer edition of watchOS, tvOS and macOS 10.14. It has also used the WWDC platform in the past to unveil new hardware. For instance, the existing Mac Pro was unveiled at WWDC 2013 and the new iPad Pros were announced at WWDC 2017.
Rumors have it that a new iPad Pro may get unveiled at WWDC 2018. It is speculated to feature a notch design like the iPhone X. Hence, the rumor mill has dubbed it as iPad X. It is pegged to feature TrueDepth Camera and Face ID. Some reports claim that the company may also announce the iPhone SE 2 at WWDC 2018. It is likely to borrow some innards from iPhone 7 and is likely to support for wireless charging.
WWDC 2017 was attended by nearly 5,000 developers and 1,000 engineers. The upcoming WWDC is expected to receive more audience even though the tickets are likely to be priced around $1,599. The event will also live streamed through WWDC website and its app.
