Apple Wwdc 18

It's official! Apple has announced this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2018).

Apple uses the conference to share perspectives and learn bout the future of Apple's products and services.

As we noted when the dates were announced in February of a year ago, the decision made sense at the time, given the rapidly rising cost of living in SF and the fact that the show needs some room to grow.

Tickets will go on sale for the latest iteration of Apple's annual event on March 22 at 10 a.m. PT. Tickets are issued through a random selection process, and developers will be notified of application status by March 24. The McEnery Convention Center will once again be home to Apple's developers from across the world. The company also typically releases new features for developers to integrate into apps, like it did with augmented reality a year ago.

In addition to paid tickets, Apple is also offering up to 350 students and STEM organization members aged 13 or older the opportunity to win free tickets by creating Swift playgrounds.

WWDC 2018 will be held at the McEnery Convention Center, the same location as previous year.

Apple is expected to announce iOS 12 and the next version of macOS at WWDC. Details on how to apply can be found on Apple's website.
