Apple Announces Date for Worldwide Developers Conference 2018

It's official: Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off in San Jose, California on June 4, the company announced today. It's nearly a year later and we're expecting some kind of details surrounding the new Mac Pro, given Apple's recent efforts to address professional users. Likewise, the company is expected to unveil the iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5 operating systems.

Apple is said to be working on an 11-inch iPad Pro, as per the Taiwanese report that also declines the rumor about iPhone SE 2 release in the first half of the year. Zhang notes that Apple announced the second-generation iPad Pro at last year's WWDC, making an announcement for a redesigned tablet at this year's event entirely plausible.

The event serves as a common ground for developers to share and create new experiences on Apple's platforms like the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac and even the Home Pod.

WWDC has traditionally been a software focused event, but Apple has surprised with hardware announcements every now and then.

Of course, we are just speculating at the moment, but more details will emerge in the following days. As always, developers who aren't chosen and consumers will be able to livestream the event online.

For students, they are offering up to 350 WWDC Student Scholarships this year. Members of the Apple Developer Program or the Apple Developer Enterprise Program can apply for tickets from now through March 22 at 10 a.m.
