Apple's WWDC 2018 kicks off June 4

Apple's WWDC 2018 kicks off June 4

The Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, for 2018 will be held in San Jose, California, much like a year ago and is scheduled for June 4-8.

Apple typically saves its hardware announcements for standalone events, choosing to concentrate on developer-focused news during WWDC.

WWDC 2018 will be Apple's 29 such conference and will be held at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose.

This is breaking and will be updated. Apple will then randomly select developers who can then purchase a ticket for $1,599.

In addition to paid tickets, Apple is also offering up to 350 students and STEM organization members aged 13 or older the opportunity to win free tickets by creating Swift playgrounds. While not many details have been given surrounding the new software, we did hear a little while ago Apple plans to refine the experience of using iOS 12 while also offering cross-platform compatibility between iOS and macOS.

If universal apps are part of Apple's plans, there would be no better place to introduce the concept than an event attended by thousands of software makers.

Apple is expected to announce iOS 12 and the next version of macOS at WWDC. Apple needed to talk up the HomePod so that developers could start working on optimizing their apps for the Siri-powered speaker in advance of its release.
