On Monday morning, Apple announced that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 6 through June 10th. As widely expected, the event will return to San Francisco’s Moscone West, where Apple has a storied history of unveiling new products and software that leave the tech world buzzing.
Apple says this year's conference will once again herald what the future of computing technology holds, including exciting demonstrations of the "new kinds of apps that developers can build using Apple’s advanced frameworks and more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers."
“At this year’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, in a press release issued Monday. “If you are an iOS or Mac OS X software developer, this is the event that you do not want to miss.”

- more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of technology-specific topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and Mac OS technologies;
