Apple Announces WWDC 2019 Kicks Off June 3

15 March 2019

Eager to see what Apple has planned for this year's updates to its assorted operating systems?

Thirty years after the original WWDC developers conference was held, Apple has announced that the next annual edition of its event will kick off June 3rd and end on June 7th.

Apple is promoting WWDC 2019 with the tagline: "Write code. Blow minds" along with an image of a robot, signifying the importance of artificial intelligence. The new iOS version is expected to bring a system-wide dark mode - somewhat similar to how macOS 10.14 Mojave brought a dark mode previous year. These new announcements will hopefully make the iPad a far more capable device, something which keeps Apple's tablet on a leash when it is running iOS 12.

Aside from iOS 13, Apple would announce macOS 10.15 as the new macOS version at WWDC 2019. The event brings together thousands of developers from across the world, giving them access to Apple's engineers for hands-on training. Among the software stuff, there may also be some hardware news, including the one many have been waiting for two years now, and that's the new Mac Pro announcement.

Other innovations that Apple will address include machine learning, augmented reality, and health and fitness.

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.

Those not lucky enough to be their can live-stream the conference on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV as well as through the Apple Developer website. "Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps".

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.
