Apple has announced that its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) will kick off on 5 June this year.
What's more, the firm has announced that the conference will be returning to San Jose for the first time since 2002, with WWDC 2017 to be held at the McEnery Convention Center that's close to Apple's new HQ.
Apple's Phill Schiller told The Loop that the venue is about the same size as Moscone Center, with capacity for about 5,000 developers and around 1,000 Apple engineers.
San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo said: "We're ecstatic that Apple has chosen to host its WWDC 2017 in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley and site of the very first WWDC.
"We look forward to working with Apple to create a special experience for the thousands of attendees who will visit San Jose for this marquee event. And on behalf of our entire city, I'd like to extend a warm invitation to Apple developers, partners and enthusiasts from around the world to join us in Downtown San Jose as Apple unveils its latest innovations."
Apple doesn't give much away about this year's developer conference but posted information on its website about how developers must combine technology and the arts, or something.
"Technology alone is not enough. Technology must intersect with the liberal arts and the humanities, to create new ideas and experiences that push society forward," it wrote.
"This summer we bring together thousands of brilliant minds representing many diverse perspectives, passions, and talents to help us change the world."
While Apple hasn't said much, WWDC 2017 will no doubt see the firm show off new versions of its platforms including iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS.
Tickets for WWDC will go on sale in March, and Schiller has told The Loop that they will be the same price as previous years, which means it'll cost you $1,599 for a ticket. You'll likely have to be quick, with tickets last year selling out in just two minutes.
The event will also be live-streamed to iPhone, iPad and Apple TV owners.
