After Siri provided a sneak peek at the dates for Apple’s 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference, the Cupertino-based company confirmed the event by launching its WWDC 2016 website.
WWDC16 starts on Monday 13 June and runs throughout the week until Friday 17 June. WWDC16 actually takes place at two venues. Monday, the day of the keynote, will be at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The rest of the week will be at Moscone West, where WWDCs have been held in the recent past.
The keynote on 13 June starts at 10am PT, and according to the WWDC 2016 website, will be streamed live on the web. Apple will also stream select WWDC sessions and post videos of all the sessions.
If you are interested in attending WWDC16, you must register for a ticket lottery. If you are selected, you have an opportunity to buy a ticket for US$1599. The deadline to register is this Friday 22 April at 10am PT. Apple will notify you of your ticket status by Monday 25 April.
For students 13 years of age or older interested in attending WWDC16, Apple is offering scholarships that grant free admission to WWDC and possible travel assistance. You must be a member or alumnus of a STEM organisation, and you must submit an app that you have worked on that “demonstrates creative use of Apple technologies and runs on an Apple platform”. The deadline for scholarship applications is Sunday 1 May at 5pm PT. Applicants will be notified of their statues by Monday 9 May.
