Apple said that the event will be held at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose from June 5 to June 9. During the WWDC developers around the globe get to learn about the Apple’s amazing innovation and technologies. Apple claims that consumers have over a billion active devices and such events inspire developers to continue creating better experiences for customers. The event brings together Apple engineers with developers from the world over to discuss opportunities through engagement. This is the 28th WWDC that Apple will be organising and it is expected that there will be some announcements regarding its upcoming devices and software updates.
Apple will be holding keynote address, get together, sessions and labs for developers. The McEnery Convention Center, which is just minutes away from the company’s new headquarters in Cupertino, has organised a hub containing hotels, restaurants and entertainment choices, which will ensure easier and more engagement opportunities between developers and Apple engineers. According to Apple, the company along with San Jose will bring ‘very special experiences’ around the city all through the week.
For developers, they can buy tickets from spring 2017 and the conference will be live-streaming at the Apple Developer’s website as well as the WWDC app present in Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. What we can expect at the launch is some announcement on the upcoming iPhone. Along with it, there are speculations that Apple might talk about the iOS update and Apple TV. One can also expect something on the lines of the recent immigration ban suggested by US President Donald Trump, against which Apple has been quite pro-active.
Meanwhile, Apple has topped Samsung as numero uno player in the global smartphone market with 17.9 per cent share in the December quarter, according to research firm Gartner. With Samsung grappling from the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, it is a great time for Apple to capitalise on the lead.
