Apple WWDC 2013 event starts June 10 in San Francisco

New, 7 comments

Apple's 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference, an event where game developers and other app creators for iOS and Mac OS X can learn about upcoming advances on the two platforms, will run June 10-14, Apple announced today.

The event will be held in the West Hall of San Francisco's Moscone Center, which will be packed with over 1,000 Apple engineers demonstrating new functionality and best practices with hands-on demo sessions, panels and other presentations. Tickets for the event, which typically sell out without hours of their availability, will go on sale tomorrow, April 25 at 1 p.m. ET. Grabbing one is no small feat; not only do you have to purchase one before they're all gone, you also have to be a registered member of an Apple Developer Program, and pony up a $1,599 fee for the ticket.

WWDC 2013 will run concurrently with E3 2013, which will be open to industry ticketholders June 11-13. The WWDC keynote has traditionally been held the first day of the event, and usually brings the biggest announcements about the future of Apple's hardware and operating systems. E3's biggest keynotes typically happen in its opening days, as well, meaning the second week of June is shaping up to be a news-heavy one.
