Apple has confirmed that it will reveal details on the forthcoming versions of its iOS and OS X platforms at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
Tickets for the event, which runs between 10 and 14 June go on sale tomorrow at 10am Pacific Time and typically sell out within minutes of availability.
“We’re excited to show [developers] the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide Marketing. “We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
Attendees will get the chance to dip into over 100 technical sessions, including ones focused on the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app's functionality, performance, quality and design.
At last year's WWDC, Apple showed off its iOS 6 platform, featuring for the first time its own map app. Apple Maps proved to be one of the firm's biggest gaffes in years, when it launched later that year.
While WWDC delegates were treated to demonstrations of its 3D maps and turn-by-turn navigation, they would little have suspected such a half-cooked release from Apple.
The maps furore has dampened the fever-pitch excitement that used to surround the firm. This week, the tech giant reported a year-on-year drop for its latest quarterly profits – the first time in a decade Apple has seen profits dip.
