It's official! Apple has announced this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2018). Every year at WWDC, Apple developers get an insight of what the company is working on while getting the opportunity to share their experiences with others.
The random lottery ticket process for developers will launches today and ends on March 22 at 10AM PDT/1PM EDT, with winners notified by March 23 at 5PM PDT/8PM PDT.
The company uses the event to galvanise the software developers that write apps for iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and Apple TVs.
WWDC 2018 will kick off on the 4th of June and will run through the 8th of the same month.
For the second year in a row, Apple will hold the event at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, as opposed to the Moscone Center in San Francisco, where the company used to regularly hold the event.
Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community.
Apple will also once again be offering WWDC Student Scholarships, providing eligible students with the a complimentary ticket and lodging at the conference. Given Apple's typical yearly upgrade cycle for major iOS and macOS releases, and the fact that it pushes those updates out free of charge for existing users, it's an early look at the sudden influx of new apps and features we can expect.
