Apple has just announced plans for the 30th Worldwide Developers Conference, set to take place between June 3 through to June 7 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose.
Developers are able to register to attend the event from today, although are not guaranteed tickets to the event.
Instead, Apple uses a lottery system to choose developers at random – because the event is so popular and in-demand, it’s impossible for everyone to attend.
Tickets are priced at $1,599 for the four-day event, though educational discounts and scholarships are on offer to a select number of attendees.
In order to register and enter the lottery, developers must have an Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program membership and register before March 20 on the Apple Developers website.
Winners will be notified the following day, on March 21.
“WWDC is Apple’s biggest event of the year. It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community,” Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in an Apple press release.
“Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps.
“We can’t wait to get together with them and share what’s next.”
Apple uses its WWDC keynote presentations to introduce new software and products, with the company likely set to lift the lid on iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13, and watchOS 6.
Those not lucky enough to receive tickets to this year’s conference will be able to stream the keynote presentation on the Apple website, Apple TV, the TV app, and via the dedicated WWDC app.
AppleMagazine will also cover the event live on social media, and offer in-depth analysis in our weekly magazine, which you can now subscribe to on the App Store.
