Apple announces WWDC 2016

WWDC is the World Wide Developers Conference. It's where Apple announces the next version of OS X, iOS and now, watchOS. We might also see a rename of OS X to macOS, which has been hinted. This year we will also see tvOS.

Surprisingly, this year's WWDC takes place at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the same place where the iPhone 6s was announced last September. WWDC 2016 is on June 13.

The way Apple's announcing WWDC 2016 is through Swift code. Swift is Apple's own programming language.

If you're lucky enough to get one, a ticket for WWDC 2016 will cost you $1,599.

Additionally, throughout the week there will be over 1,000 Apple engineers on hand supporting more than 150 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with very personal and expert assistance. There will also be several guest speakers, live music and more.
