Save the date! Apple today announced it will host its 29th annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018 in San Jose from June 4 through June 8. The WWDC is the conference where Apple updates, and at times introduces, the latest in Apple technology to its community of developers. With their new HomePod, AppleTV and Apple Watch product still scratching the surface of what ‘s possible, this conference will undoubtedly be on the calendar of most Apple fans.
Every year, WWDC provides an opportunity for millions of developers to learn more about how to create new experiences across Apple’s platforms for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, Mac and HomePod. A broad range of robust developer APIs, including SiriKit, HomeKit, HealthKit, GymKit, MusicKit, ResearchKit, and CoreML, give developers new ways to help users take command of everything from their health and homes, to how they get around, shop and learn. Last year at WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every category on the App Store have embraced inventive ways to engage customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world.
Developers can apply for tickets from now through March 22 at 10 a.m. PDT via the WWDC website. Up to 350 WWDC Student Scholarships are available this year, providing students and members of all STEM organizations an opportunity to earn a free ticket to WWDC. Students can now visit the WWDC website for details on how to apply.
