Circle your calendar: Apple announces dates for WWDC 2015
Apple has announced that its annual WWDC 2015 Developer Conference will take place from June 8th through June 2015 in San Francisco. Apple says that this year it has scheduled "more sessions than ever before." Those hoping to attend in person can apply for tickets now through April 17th at 10am PDT/1pm EDT. Apple will tell you via email whether you've been selected to buy a ticket no later than 5pm PDT/8pm EDT on April 20th.

To apply for tickets, simply click on the sourcelink. You need to be a current member of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program. You also have to be at least 13-years old and those under 17 need to have Mommy or Daddy fill in their application. By the way, those who win the lottery to buy tickets will have the debit or credit card associated with their Apple ID charged $1299 USD or the equivalent in your local currency. Apple will run your card through by April 20th at 5pm PDT/8pm EDT.

If you can't make it, Apple will live stream the event which will include sessions on Design, App Frameworks, Apple Watch, Health and Fitness, Graphics and Games, Media, Core OS, Tools and Language and Enterprise. Also, there is speculation (as there always is) about a new product announcement. This time it is the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro/Plus that is rumored to be unveiled at WWDC this year. We also should get a sneak peek at iOS 9.

I thought Apple was no longer introducing products (new ones) @ WWDC.

You're correct. This is for iOS9 (supposedly a major OS cleanup to make it perfect, according to rumors).

Technically ios9 will be new. Maybe another point release of osx.

Android has been using the same API's over the years now. If they dont find and enginneer a new API, their apps will remain inferior to the supremacy of Apple's apps.

What bs ?

12. seven7dust unregistered

the usually just take 2 mins to talk about Android and it's true , many Android phones are still running 2 year old jelly bean and guess what all the manufacturers want you to buy a new phone to get lollipop, cause they make more sales that way , and carriers will get a new contract as well. it's true fact about Android phones which ever way you spin it.

Because most budget Android phones are made to be dumbphones with minimal smartphone features. They were never made to be updated at all And Apple loves using this in their warped pie charts. The only thing that should matter is the update cycles of the flagships, which I would say is almost as good as iOS's update cycle (and a hell lot harder since each major Android update is a framework overhaul that needs to be OEM reskinned from ground up rather than just adding to the current code like iOS.). Almost every 2014 flagship is already on lollipop, while 2013 ones are in the process of being updated.

Heres some further detail, for those interested. The event is no longer majorly focused on product launches, but mostly on software/design,etc From the press conference: -more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies; -over 1,000 Apple engineers supporting more than 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps; -access to the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and best practices for enhancing an app’s functionality, performance, quality and design; -the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world—last year more than 60 countries were represented; -a series of get togethers for attendees focused on particular topics with special guest speakers and activities; -engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; -Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design. "We’ve got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can’t wait to see the next generation of apps they create"

Can't wait ! What they will bring up this time ? I wish they will make iOS 9 available for the iPhone 4S and iPad mini too...

17. gaming64 unregistered

I highly doubt Apple would make iOS 9 available for iDevices running an A5 chip or below.

Sure they will, it will probably get like 8% of iOS9. Under software version it will say iOS 9, and maybe if you're lucky some rearrangement of the menu and a new bloat app?

If the user wants more features then he/she can update it. But i'm not dumb enough to update my iPad 2 to ios 8 at the moment. It's still lightning fast and I wont take the risk of losing it

I've been running an iPad 2 on Ios 8 and it's been just fine. in my opinion apple's iPads are the best on the market, Samsung will never match it, but i can't say the same for their iPhones. Those were ruined by Tim Cook
