Apple Confirms WWDC Start Times for Opening Address

[tab name=’News’]

Apple has confirmed the start times for its highly-anticipated Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) which will begin next month, on June 11th.

The opening address has been confirmed to take place 10am local time (1800GMT), where the Cupertino company is expected to unveil new products for the second half of 2012.

However, Apple hasn’t been so forthcoming on who would be giving the opening address, but it is thought new CEO Tim Cook will be on hand to open this year’s conference.

Since taking over from the enigmatic Steve Jobs, Cook has seen Apple profits rise and has had a good start to his new tenure.

Apple is expected to announced a host of new products including a thinner, lighter MacBook Pro range with a Retina display and SSD (solid state) hard drives.

There’s little chance of Apple showing off a new iPhone, but there could be other announcements on Apple TV, a new version of iOS and new apps from their in-house development teams.

This year WWDC has become one of the most anticipated events in Apple’s history. Tickets for this year’s show are like gold dust, compounded further by Apple’s decision to release the tickets when the majority of west coast developers were asleep.

This year’s tickets went on sale at 5.40 am pacific time when most developers in Silicon Valley were asleep and none the wiser.

There were only 5,000 tickets for the 5-day event, but Apple’s decision to give other regions priority has seen developers feel alienated take to Twitter and Facebook to express their distaste at the whole fiasco.

Apple has previously suggested that the keynote itself will include updates on the planned roadmap for both the iOS platform and the Mac OS X desktop operating system.
