Apple announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) from June 8 to June 12 at San Francisco’s Moscone West.
This will be Apple’s 26th annual WWDC and the company is planning to offer more live streamed sessions than before.
Apple will preview the future of iOS and OS X at this year’s conference, which will help the developer community to create innovative apps.
Apple said this year’s 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.
Developers interested in attending can apply for tickets on the WWDC website from now through Friday, April 17 at 10 a.m. PDT. Tickets will be issued to attendees through a random selection process.
Apple will let all developers know the status of their application by Monday, April 20 at 5 p.m. PDT.
Apple is also offering up to 350 WWDC Scholarships, giving students and members of participating STEM organizations around the world the chance to earn a free ticket.
Apple will also use the conference to hand out its Design Awards, which recognize iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.
“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.
Last month, Apple and IBM delivered three new enterprise applications developed for iOS as part of their ongoing IBM MobileFirst for iOS partnership to address key priorities for the banking and financial services, airline and retail industries.
In February, Apple announced its plans to invest €1.7 billion to set up two green data centers in Ireland and Denmark to support its online services in Europe.
