Apple holds a yearly developer’s conference where it outlines what the plans would be for the coming year as far as software goes. WWDC, while generally being an event for developers also gives a keen insight into what Apple could be thinking as far as the hardware goes. Oh, there is always the one more thing, for example, the legendary announcement of the Mac Pro a few years ago. All this makes the event one of the most keenly anticipated Apple conferences around the globe.
WWDC 2016 is set to be held from June 13th to June 17th in San Francisco. The event most likely will be the launchpad of the new iOS 10, Mac OSX 10.12, new WatchOS and TVOS and perhaps a few other interesting stuff like CarOS. There were reports a few days ago that Apple may decide to rename Mac OSX to just MacOS, given some subtle hints on the website, so that is definitely one thing to watch out for.
Phillip Schiller, the Senior Vice President of Marketing said:
With four innovative operating systems and a new, intuitive programming language powering over 1 billion devices worldwide, there has never been a more exciting time to bring our developer community together. WWDC 2016 is going to be a landmark event for developers who are coding in Swift, and building apps and products for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS.
With no real rumor or hint of a new Watch either, it certainly will be worth waiting for the plans that Apple has for Apple Watch and how much further can software take it. The invite in itself, this time is simple and you have a bunch of coding lines in there in different colors. Each developer must shell out US$ 1599 for registration and you have a window up to April 22nd, to enroll on the official site here.
