Those who have been waiting for Apple to unveil the dates of the Worldwide Developers Conference, and possibly the date the tech company will launch new products, will be happy to hear that WWDC 2014 will be held from 2 to 6 June at the Moscone West centre in San Francisco.
For developers wishing to attend, Apple has created a lottery system in 2014 to counter the concerns of those who missed out in 2013 after the tickets sold out in three minutes.
Registered developers, those part of the iOS or Mac Developer Program, can apply to join the lottery here and, if successful, will have the option to purchase a ticket for US$1599.
WWDC 2014 encompasses more than 100 sessions with Apple engineers, which include lab sessions, focus-area meetings and lunchtime sessions with guest speakers.
Apple’s Design Awards and State of the Union session will be live streamed on Apple’s website for developers who missed out on tickets, or those who couldn’t travel to San Francisco.
Apple has not provided any information on the WWDC keynote, which often begins the conference and is likely to be held on the morning of 3 June in Australia, but a number of new products are likely to be revealed alongside news on both iOS and OS X operating systems.
