Apple has sold out its World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) just hours after offering tickets to the developer gathering.
The company said that two hours after WWDC tickets had gone on sale it would not be able to accommodate any more attendees.
The five-day conference will run from 11-15 June at San Francisco's Moscone Center.
Those developers who have tickets will be able to attend technical sessions and labs presentations conducted by Apple engineers.
The conference will also include a hotly-anticipated keynote from Apple executives on the future of Apple's main platforms. The company said that the presentation will include updates on OS X and iOS.
For developers who are unable to obtain tickets, the company is offering to stream all of its sessions through the Apple developer portal.
"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 Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Philip Schiller.
"The iOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world."
The company made no mention of a rumoured hardware update for the iPhone. Some reports have suggested that the company is planning to unveil its next handsets at the WWDC keynote, while others have pointed to an autumn release.
