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.

Update: Tickets for WWDC are now on sale. Go forth here at Apple.

Update #2: Well, that was fast. Tickets sell out within 2 minutes.

    Not likely. From yesterday’s earnings call:

    “Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can’t wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014.”

      Pretty much this. There will most likely be a preview of iOS 7 (or whatever they plan to call it) but no product announcement. Next iPhone is coming in the fall.

  • Me Ted

    Probably a “smartwatch” that could go the way of the Newton. That is to say, nowhere.

  • TriDeka

    Doubt it, maybe the preview release of iOS 7!!

    New features on the software side…maybe siri improvments. The same old, same old.

    Some good news that would excite any Apple Fan am sure.

    Although as a Fandroid, I am still bitter about Google pushing back the launch of Key Lime Pie 5.0 on the Google I/O event. Massive fail :-

    • Plazmic Flame

      What?? Where did you hear about this?

    • Gsizzle

      For some reason I can’t post the article links, just go to google and search for “Key Lime Pie delayed”

    • selonmoi

      …And you’ll find an unsubstantiated rumour started by an unreliable site, claiming a ridiculous reason for the alleged delay.

  • Plazmic Flame

    No… Unless its on the notification shade, then I would approve. Constantly running widgets will hurt the average battery life though.

  • Samcopy

    Should do another one in china… Easy money

  • Bgor Chu

    Yeah, you are right, who cares!
    More or less the same old stuff.
