Apple confirms WWDC 2013 for June 10-14th, iOS 7 incoming?
Apple has confirmed that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (or WWDC as it’s better known) will be taking place between June 10-14th, with tickets for the event going on sale tomorrow (April 25th).
The event typically holds some big announcements from the Cupertino Company; with a new version of iOS software for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch usually in store. We’re currently on iOS 6.1.3 from Apple’s last major iOS update, iOS 6, which was launched at last year’s WWDC. It’s a given that Apple will launch a major update to iOS at the event, and it has confirmed this will be the case.
Last year Apple revealed the MacBook Pro with Retina display, iOS 6 for mobile devices and a host of new features for mobile device users, including the ill-fated Apple Maps.
New versions of iOS for mobile devices and OS X for Macs will be previewed for the first time at this year’s event and shortly after made available to download and test for developers. It’s likely that the final versions will be released to the general public later in the year to coincide with new device launches, usually around September time.
iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 are presumed to be the new software versions, although at present we know little about either.
Of course, as with anything Apple, the typical rumour mongering has already started. The logo for WWDC ’13 is typically colourful and features app-style squares laid on top of each other, each in a different, bright colour. To us, this signposts all things iOS, but some feel it is a hint towards a new range of colourful iPhones.
We’ll have to wait until much closer to the event to find out. If you’re hoping to head to the event, tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am PST or 6pm UK time – but be quick, last year the event sold out in a matter of minutes.
