"WWDC is Apple's biggest event of the year", said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, in a statement announcing the WWDC 2019 dates. With more than 1.4 billion devices now running iOS, macOS, watchOS or tvOS, WWDC 2019 will give attendees insight into the future of these platforms and work alongside the Apple engineers behind the technologies and frameworks developers rely on. The annual developer conference will take place June 3-7, hosted for the third year in a row at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. "Blow minds." Apple has also developed an image that shows a robot having a head exploded by various developer tools, including Swift and Xcode. Other rumors we've seen relay that iOS 13 on the iPad will introduce a revamped files app and a revamped Photos app. We will certainly see macOS 10.15, the successor to last year's Mojave OS created to work with MacBooks and iMacs.

As well as updates to the iPhone's software fans can also expect to see what's coming to the Mac, Apple Watch and iPad.

Who's pumped up for WWDC 2019? The event brings together thousands of developers from across the world, giving them access to Apple's engineers for hands-on training.

It is worth mentioning here that the official schedule of WWDC 2019 is in line with what was spotted on the 2019 events calendar from the City of San Jose's Office of Cultural Affairs last month.


The keynote is usually live-streamed around the world, but any developers interested in attending the full conference in person can apply for a ticket.

Apple says that tickets are issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of their application status by March 21 at 5 p.m. PDT.

Up to 350 WWDC student scholarships are available this year, providing students and members of all STEM organisations an opportunity to earn a free ticket and lodging at the event.
