    Apple today announced that its 30th annual Worldwide Developers Conference will begin on Monday, June 3 and last through Friday, June 7, with the conference set to be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

    Developers are able to register to attend starting this morning. As Apple has done for many years, WWDC attendees will be selected using a lottery system because of the popularity of the conference.


    Apple is pricing tickets at $1,599, and only developers who win the aforementioned ticket lottery will be able to purchase a ticket to attend.

    To enter the lottery, developers must have been a member of the Apple Developer Program or the Apple Developer Enterprise Program as of March 14, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Registration will be open until March 20, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time, and developers who win a ticket will be notified by March 21 at 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
    Developers who are chosen through the WWDC ticket lottery will be notified later in March. Apple is also making up to 350 WWDC Student Scholarships available to students and members of STEM organizations. Scholarships include a free WWDC ticket, free lodging, and a free one-year membership to the Apple Developer Program. Those who want to win a scholarship will need to create an interactive Swift Playground that can be experienced within three minutes. Apple is taking applications until Sunday, March 24, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. PDT, with scholarship winners to be notified by Monday, April 15.

    Apple's WWDC keynote is used to introduce new software, to debut new hardware products, and to allow the company to network with developers from around the world. This year, we are expecting Apple to introduce iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13, and watchOS 6.

    The keynote event will be held on June 3, which is when we'll get our first look at the new operating systems. Right now, it's not known if new hardware will make a debut, but we are waiting on news about Apple's upcoming high-end modular Mac Pro. Additional details about what we can expect to see will undoubtedly surface as the June conference date approaches.

    Apple has been holding its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose since 2017, and the event always takes place right around the same time in June.

    Developers who are not chosen to attend the conference will be able to live stream it through the Apple Developer website or the dedicated WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

    Let's see a mushroom cloud, a skull, an upside down star / pentagram, a lightning bolt, and devil horn hand sign all on a dark background. Illuminati and dark mode confirmed! /s

    Yeah, it seems like just yesterday I made this stupid image in response to all the people claiming the new Mac Pro looked like a garbage can:


    That… that didn't really age well. :oops:

    Not worth attending anymore, sadly. And no, it's not the price.

    It feels like a long dry spell since we've seen any product updates. Hopefully we see some before and at WWDC

    I only have a few things on my software wish list this year:
    • Dark mode for iOS
    • Updated interface for iPad Pro to make it better suited for productivity
    • Plug an iPad into a Mac and use it as an external display natively using USB-C and no third party app hackery
    • Ability to mount USB-C drives on iPad Pro
    • Improved HomeKit automation/scheduling
    • Make text selection less buggy (finally)
    As far as hardware, I hope we see a sneak peak of the new modular Mac Pro with a release date no later than early autumn (surprise release right after the event would be great) and updated iMac Pro and iMac hardware. I'm in the market for a desktop and would like to judge whether the Mac Pro would be worth it and if I could upgrade over time, or if I should go with a lower end iMac Pro or a higher end 5K iMac instead. I'd also like to see Apple designed displays offered in two sizes: 5K 27" and 6K 31.5".

    People are going to get new regular iMacs that beat their iMac Pros and complain for the next 3 years just because.
    Or they won't get one, and complain for the next 3 years.

    Hopefully, they'll announce iOS 13 and it won't contain changes that throw developers under the bus. We one man shops spend an awful amount of time just making our apps work with the changes every year. Rather spend my time being innovative. Or on vacation...

    Thats a terrible graphic. You can see the demographic they are trying to entice here: Ariana Grande/Bieber/Cardi B gen z, $4,000 per month rent, thank u, next dev ops crowd.

    I hope Apple fixes "Right Size All Columns Individually" option in Finder in Column view since it has not been working... since I went to macOS in 2013.

    *The option is not persistent if you browse through folders/files. Essentially it only works single time as if you have double clicked on the column bordero_O

    I will say this again. They should have 3-4 satellite locations where "some" Apple engineers are physically present, the recent build of Swift and MacOS and iOS are present, and a video feed from the sessions are available. Everything except the impossible parking, lodging and transportation to and from the prime venue. Heck, you probably could still charge for it.

    Apple releases iMacs with new form factor: "Typical Apple, form over function."
    Apple releases iMacs with same form factor: "Lazy Apple has lost its magic."

    There is no winning here.

    Is that a strange image or what?

    EDIT: I take that back! It is a great image. I think the skull is simply a way to honour the pirate flag that the original Mac team did put up. Therefore I would assume big changes for the Mac ahead which is great news of course. What could that be? Maybe first Macs with an Apple designed silicon?

    I used to book days off work to watch the live stream if the key notes they where that good. Never forget the moment SJ pulled out the 1st MBA from
    An envelope, such theatre. Now I catch up with them from twitter, the day after- if I remember.

    Well, it's about time. That would be the 2 year mark for the iMac, and the 12" MacBook. The iMac Pro is also due for an update.

    And Mac Pro, where art thou?
