Apple Putting Finishing Touches on WWDC Decorations at McEnery Convention Center

The first WWDC 2019 events kick off in just two days with the early arrival of student scholars, and Apple is putting the finishing touches on decorations at and around the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose.


Decorations on the convention center, light poles, and public transit stops all carry the same neon theme on dark blue as seen on other WWDC materials, with the front entrance area of the convention center covered in a huge sheet displaying a robot emoji with all sorts of icons exploding out of the top of it and the "Dub Dub" nickname sometimes used for WWDC.


Photos from earlier in the assembly process hint at the possibility of some sort of lighting behind the sheet, so we'll have to wait and see what it looks like at night.


The main event of WWDC 2019 kicks off on Monday at 10:00 am Pacific Time with the traditional keynote, and we'll have full coverage here on MacRumors.com and through our MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Update 8:51 PM: As shared on Twitter by Lucas Wagner, the "Dub Dub" graphic on the facade of the McEnery Convention Center has now been lit.

When they care more about set/event decorations than they do the design of their devices.

Meh. I remember the old days when WWDC banners gave us more clues. Nothing to see here.

If the sign does indeed light up at night, then dark mode in iOS is definitely a thing.

Hopefully not only for oled devices

What to expect during WWDC ?

Probably, more complaints about Apple in the forums :).
