WWDC is Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, a great chance for all developers around the world to meet the best engineers from Apple and to get the latest insights about their favorite products and latest technologies. It’s a great event where you can learn new things from valuable workshops, hands-on labs, software sessions, thematic meetings and many more special events.
The 28th edition will be held at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose, California from 5-9 June 2017. The date was announced much earlier this year, in order to give the potential attendees equal chances to the lottery system used to sell the tickets. This system was adopted by Apple in 2014 mostly because of the high demand, even if the price is not really for everyone: $1,599 per attendee.
From all the most awaited tech events in the world, WWDC could be the most important for many developers and Apple fans. You may ask why… The main reason it’s because Apple makes the biggest announcements about their new products and major updates. Here you can see the highlights from the last four editions:
- 2016: macOS Sierra, iOS 10, watchOS 3, tvOS 10
- 2015: Mac OS X ‘El Capitan’; iOS 9; watchOS 2; Apple Music
- 2014: Mac OS X 10.10 ‘Yosemite’; iOS 8; Swift programming language
- 2013: New Mac Pro; New MacBook Air models; Mac OS X 10.9 ‘Mavericks’; iOS 7; iWork for iCloud; iTunes Radio
There are plenty of rumors about Apple working on a new social networking app, like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, but more focused on video content sharing. The app will let users recording videos and editing them, adding doodles and send it to their friends.
It is expected to offer iPad more attention than the previous version, iOS 10, expanding Apple Pencil support combined with the iPad Pro hardware improvements.
If a new iteration of macOS is going to come out, we are deadly curious what will be its Californian name.
TVOS and watchOS
With the latest technology and the future updates to come, we believe Apple Watch will be in the spotlights for a while.
Maybe the new version of Swift will come with a dedicated IDE because Apple wants everybody to write apps, children, students, novices, and they need something that brings their ideas to life in no time.
