Apple has announced the dates for WWDC 2018, its annual developer conference where the company is going to announce iOS 12, watchOS 5, macOS 10.14 and tvOS 12 along with possible hardware announcements.
WWDC 18 will take place in San Jose, CA during June 4 to 8. On June 4 Apple will hold its keynote event announcing new products while rest of the days will be filled with developer specific sessions.
As in previous years, the opportunity to buy tickets to WWDC18 is offered by random selection. The deadline for registration is March 22, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Tickets cost $1,599 USD, but scholarships will be made available. Developers who are chosen through the WWDC ticket lottery will be notified by March 23 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Apple also plans to make up to 350 WWDC Student Scholarships available this year for students and members of STEM organizations. Scholarships provide a free WWDC ticket, free lodging, and free one year membership to the Apple Developer Program.
Apple will hold a keynote event on Monday, June 4, where we will get our first glimpse at new software products and perhaps some new hardware. Rumors suggest Apple could use the event to introduce new lower-cost MacBook Air models and refreshed iPad Pro models equipped with Face ID.
Other things to expect if you’re attending WWDC: over 100 technical and design-focused sessions presented by Apple engineers, hands-on labs, consultations with app experts, guest speakers and of course a plethora of get-togethers.
