Apples WWDC Dates Confirmed

Apple has confirmed the dates for its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). The conference will be run from June 6 to June 10 at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco.

The event is billed as the unveiling of “the future of iOS and Mac OS”, and it is also widely reported that the next generation iPhone will be announced.

The event will feature demonstrations of apps built using Apples new frameworks, as well as technical sessions hosted by Apple engineers.

Apple will host sessions for mobile developers that explain the latest version of the iOS. Developers can bring their code to the events for advice and help from Apples engineers.

Philip Schiller, Apples senior vice president of worldwide product marketing says: “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”

Apple will also host the Apple Design Awards, which will reward “technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design” in iOS and Mac OS X development.

In terms of the iPhone 5, speculation has been rife for many months. Safe bets are that the iPhone 5 will sport a version of the A5 chip that runs the iPad 2, and a new aluminium back plate.

TechCrunch has also reported that the operating system will get a major revamp to iOS 5 later in the year, with a greater focus on cloud services.
