Apple holds its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, where it unveils its newest software and sometimes hardware. The specific date fluctuates every year and Apple is very secretive about it, sometimes waiting within weeks of the event to announce it, but this year, the surprise may have been spoiled ahead of time.
According to MacRumors, a reliable source close to the situation has confirmed that the event will return to the McEnery Convention Center, the same location WWDC was held last year. This isn’t all that surprising, as Apple likes to hold its events at the same location year after year. Prior to last year, Apple held WWDC at the Moscone Center in San Francisco for fourteen years in a row.
The McEnery Convention Center is booked up for every week in June, except for one week: June 4 to June 10. WWDC lasts an entire week, with the first day celebrated with a big event.
Nothing is definitive at the moment. The event is still many months away, giving Apple plenty of time to change its plan. But as things stands, everything fits into the schedule very neatly.
Some of the things we can expect to be unveiled during WWDC includes iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS 10.14 with a brand new California-themed name. Apple may also take the opportunity to announce some new hardware.
Last year was an outlier, with the iMac Pro and HomePod being announced along with the slightly bigger 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Let’s hope we see similar slate of announcements this year.
