Worldwide Developers Conference

Every year, Apple holds an annual Worldwide Developers Conference at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco, California, giving thousands of developers from around the world a chance to meet up with Apple engineers and sit in on valuable workshops and software sessions.

Apple typically begins each conference with a kickoff keynote on the first day, where the company makes major announcements and sets the stage for the remainder of the week. Keynote events often include a look at upcoming products and services and the first glimpse of new operating systems.

In 2016, Apple is expected to unveil the latest versions of iOS and OS X. News on additional products that might make an appearance will likely be shared as we get closer to the conference date.

Moscone West decorated for the 2015 WWDC event

Apple has yet to announce the dates for WWDC 2016, but given other events already booked at Moscone West during much of Apple's usual June timeframe, it appears likely the conference will be held June 13 to 17.

Tickets

For many years, WWDC tickets were available to any registered developers willing to purchase them, but as Apple's popularity has grown and the size of the conference has remained relatively the same due to space and staffing constraints, tickets have been much harder to come by.

WWDC sold out for the first time in 2008, and by 2013 tickets for the event were selling out in just two minutes. For 2014 and 2015, Apple moved to a lottery system, and the company is likely to use a similar system for 2016.

Tickets have been priced at $1599 for many years, with Apple also offering several hundred conference scholarships to student developers through an application process.
