WWDC 2012 launch hints at IOS software update
As its name suggests, WWDC is a conference held for developers, with Apple promising 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers as well as the Apple Design Awards. However, the event held at Moscone West in San Francisco usually sees some sort of product launch from the company too.
In typical Apple fashion we don’t know yet what to expect from this year’s WWDC, but Philip Schiller, SVP of worldwide marketing at Apple has hinted that we’ll be seeing a new version of IOS software.
He said, “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. The IOS platform has created an entirely new industry with fantastic opportunities for developers across the country and around the world.”
Last year’s WWDC witnessed the launch of IOS 5, which brought Twitter integration, Newsstand and Android-style notifications to the Iphone and Ipad. We’re unlikely to see any new hardware at the San Francisco event though, with the next Iphone tipped to arrive in October instead.
If you’re a paid member of the IOS Developer Programme, IOS Developer Enterprise Programme or Mac Developer Programme and fancy seeing “what’s new” with Apple’s software, tickets are available now for $1,599.
