Apple announced this morning that their 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will happen between June 10th – June 14th in San Francisco. Tickets will officially go on sale Thursday, April 25th at 10am PDT (1pm EST).
Apple noted that this 5-day event will give devs an opportunity to “learn about the future of iOS and OS X, enabling them to create incredible new apps with innovative features. WWDC will also feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs to help developers integrate new technologies, as well as the popular Apple Design Awards.”
A hint of what we can expect is a new version of iOS. In the press release Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, stated “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.”
During the quarterly call yesterday it was revealed that the App Store has now seen over 45 billion downloads (up 5 billion from the previous quarter), plus they’ve payed out over $9 billion to developers.
