WWDC 2013 Sells Out in Seconds
Going... going... gone.
On Thursday morning, tickets to Apple's 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference went on sale. And moments later, they were all gone.
Within seconds, Apple logged the fastest WWDC sell-out in company history.
Last year, it took close to two hours for the sell-out to occur. This year, it was two minutes - not bad when you consider the passes come with a $1,599 price tag.
Fueling stronger-than-usual interest this time around is the admission by Apple that both iOS and OS X refreshes will be unveiled at the conference, which spans June 10 through June 14.
“We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” says Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple. “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps,” the executive concluded. “We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
