Apple announced today that the Worldwide Developers Conference will be held June 10 through June 14 in San Francisco. Tickets for the annual five-day conference will cost $1,599, and go on sale April 25 at 10 a.m. PT. Developers who can't afford or make it to WWDC will be able to watch videos of the event during the conference.
Last year's WWDC sold out in less than two hours, and event videos were only made available weeks after the conference had ended. Apple announced the decision to post the videos during the event on the WWDC general info page.
"Can’t make it to WWDC? We'll be posting videos of all our sessions during the conference, so Registered Apple Developers can take advantage of great WWDC content."
iOS 6 rumors are heating up now that the WWDC is about a month away. Here is what Apple is expected to unveil or at least preview at the event.
AllThingsD has confirmed an earlier report by 9to5Mac that claimed Apple would ditch Google Maps in favor for a new Maps app.
“Sources tell 9to5Mac that Apple will abandon Google’s mapping backend in the next major iteration of iOS, replacing it with a brand new mapping application powered by Apple technology. We’ve independently confirmed that this is indeed the case. Sources describe the new Maps app as a forthcoming tent-pole feature of iOS that will, in the words of one, 'blow your head off.'

Apple has just announced that the 2012 Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on June 11 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Tickets for the five-day conference can be purchased via Apple's website for $1599. Apple will publish all technical sessions on their Apple Developer website for developers who can't afford a ticket or are unable to attend the conference this year.
“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world.”
Developers are hoping that Apple will preview iOS 6 at the event.
During the keynote address at WWDC 2009 Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of Apple's worldwide product marketing, revealed the new iPhone 3GS. The new iPhone model has the same design as the iPhone 3G, however the S stands for speed.
The new model will be faster and have a higher storage capacity. Apple also announced that an 8GB version of the iPhone 3G will sell for $99.
As expected, Apple's third incarnation of their revolutionary iPhone was announced today at the 2009 WWDC. Though the iPhone announcement followed big, exciting news about new Macbook models and a whirling overview of Snow Leopard, like you, it was the iPhone 3GS grit we were waiting for. After a short session of back-patting about the success of the iPhone AppStore and in-depth overview of the new iPhone OS 3.0, Apple dished out the goods on the new iPhone model.
Phil Schiller announced the new iPhone 3GS as a "really fast iPhone", and then offered up supporting benchmarks that show the new iPhone 3GS as roughly 2x faster than the iPhone 3G model, across most applications.
Schiller also confirmed the presence of 7.2Mbps HSDPA support and gave an in-depth overview of the new 3 megapixel camera in the iPhone 3GS. The new camera offers exciting features such as macro photo taking as close as 10cm from your subject, tap-to-focus
During today's keynote address at WWDC 2009, Scott Forstall - head of Apple iPhone software development - gave the audience a detailed overview of many of the new features in OS 3.0, including copy & paste, shake-to-undo, spotlight searching, and more. Two of the "more" were the highly anticipated support for MMS (multimedia messaging) and tethering (the ability to share your iPhone wireless connection with your PC).
More leaked images of the next iPhone? Whether these are real or not, they certainly add more fuel to the blaze of speculation preceding WWDC this coming Monday. If these accurately represent the next iPhone model, Apple has quite a few tricks up its sleeve.
The first image is an enhanced excerpt from the photo below. What we see is two seperate holes above the display screen of the iPhone. Could one be a speaker and the other a front-facing camera?
Apple's WWDC is right around the corner, but this hasn't stopped the continuous stream of discoveries, leaks and rumors surrounding the next generation iPhone. This photo of a banner hanging at the WWDC venue all but ensures the conference will focus on iPhone 3.0 and the AppStore.
Several new features are now on the horizon. BusinessWeek reports that Apple has already included code in iPhone OS 3.0 that would allow users to directly share apps with each other. Analysts have even suggested that the person sending the app could receive a commission from the AppStore.
As expected, Apple has announced the arrival of the second generation 3G iPhone. The announcement occured just moments ago at this years WWDC (world wide developers conference) at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Steve Jobs announced the next generation Apple iPhone and all its glory to a crowd of anxious observers who had many a set of cross fingers anticipating the announcement.
However, despite the formal announcement and the presentation of a ton of new information about the new 3G iPhone, it won't be available immediately as many had predicted. Instead, the 3G iPhone will be released worldwide on
