Apple Confirms WWDC Keynote on June 11 at 10AM Pacific, Releases iOS App for Attendees

Apple today made a series of announcements on its Worldwide Developers Conference page, most notably posting the conference schedule confirming that an opening keynote will be held on Monday, June 11 at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. As noted by The Loop, Apple has also issued media invitations for the keynote.

No other details on the keynote session are available, but it will presumably see Apple CEO Tim Cook kicking off a team presentation to show off OS X Mountain Lion and iOS 6 and potentially introduce major updates to the company's Mac products.

The full schedule is restricted to conference attendees, but includes the typical suite of session, labs, and other events to help developers learn from Apple experts and socialize with others. As usual, the schedule includes a number of "To Be Announced" sessions that will build upon announcements made in the keynote. Apple has also published an Attendee Guide to help conference attendees plan their week, know what to bring, and get up to speed to be ready for conference sessions.


Finally, Apple has once again released a free WWDC iOS app [App Store] to help attendees stay organized during the conference. Arriving as a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, WWDC 2012 includes the conference schedule with the ability to "favorite" sessions of greatest interest, news updates, maps of the Moscone Center, and photos from the event.

Interesting, anyone notice its silver? Does this mean iOS 6 will be silver instead of blue.

I still don't understand why the app can only be used by attendees only.

Really hope to hear about what the strategy will be for new Mac Pros. Fingers firmly crossed that some mention will be made!

Looks like they're changing to sliver theme, rather than `blue`-ish to match iPad's theme. Lookin' forward to it!

Not according to device sales. There are far more iOS devices than Macs sold every quarter.

Moreover, the desktop market is less than a quarter of Apple's total Mac sales. The Mac Pro sales percentage is miniscule which is why Apple hasn't updated it for nearly two years.


Wrong. The D and C stand for "Developer Conference". To develop for iOS or Mac OS, you pretty much have to be on a Mac. Thus, the majority of attendees at WWDC are interested in seeing new Macs.

Steve Jobs said the computer was going to become the truck of the digital world. Guess who the truck drivers are? The dev's. We want new macs like truck drivers want new trucks.

Yes we know iOS outsells everything...that's obvious considering the devices cost way less then the desktop/laptop lines.

WWDC is more about the software/pro market...which mainly focuses on the MBPro, iMac, MacPro. We'll see an update on Lion and Final Cut X and the systems that run those over iOS 6.

You obviously don't understand what WWDC is about. It's not about the iOS devices. It's about the MAC and it's software.

BTW, your iOS apps are programmed on...wait for it....iMacs, MacPros, MBPros.

I really can't see any new hardware being announced at WWDC. It'll be focused on the two new OS versions.


I think you're wrong here. Perfect time to show new software is on new machines optimized for that software and that is about Ivy Bridge. Apple has probably had their chips for months from Intel. And most hardware is set up for sale almost immediately after the announcement (and there was a post about stock dwindling down for MBPros).

I think one of the reasons for the poor sales of the Pro are twofold:

1) those that require and can afford such a powerful machine are few and
2) there hasn't been a refresh in a while and we all know it. Most of those few are on hold waiting for a better machine.


Agreed. I've been in a holding pattern for a year waiting on the MBPro or MacPro. They have my sale as soon as I know what they are releasing. And I'm not the only one waiting.

Regarding #1...the needs for a MacPro are dwindling for a lot of users. Top of the line iMacs and MBPros can do the job for most. Will be interesting to see where they go with the MacPro. Still waiting on that mystical unicorn MacPro mid tower.
