    Apple today sent press invites to a variety of news and media sites for its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, confirming plans to hold a keynote event on June 5 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

    Apple traditionally holds a keynote event on the first day of the Worldwide Developers Conference, where new software is introduced. We expect to see new versions of iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS at the conference, and there's a chance we could also see new hardware like updated iMacs and Apple's rumored Siri speaker.

    As was announced in February, the Worldwide Developers Conference will take place from June 5 to June 9 in San Jose, California, a departure from past events that have long been held in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.

    Tickets, which were priced at $1,599, were distributed by random selection at the end of March, and free tickets provided to scholarship winners were also handed out in April.

    Apple expects to host about 5,000 developers, with hundreds of Apple engineers available to answer questions and host app development sessions. Developers who cannot attend will be able to watch the sessions through the WWDC 2017 website, and the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

    For the June 5 keynote event, MacRumors will provide a live blog both here on MacRumors.com and on our MacRumorsLive Twitter account, along with detailed coverage of everything Apple announces during the week.

    Anyone else finding WWDC less exciting and more predicable every year? Although I guess that just may be Apple as a company in general.

    I expect nothing "magical" and I bet that I will still be disappointed with the keynote.

    Hopefully bootable APFS will be included in the first 10.13 beta.

    No, but I find comments like this more predictable every year.

    Not at all. I'm looking forward to seeing what the latest iOS/MacOS/WatchOS versions will debut. And what would predictability have anything to do with it? We already know Apple will demo the latest OS and it's primarily about the developers. Any hardware would be a bonus.

    I am looking forward to finding out what Mac systems will run the next OS, as I know the 2011 iMac I currently own day's are numbered because of the lack of Metal support. I am also looking forward to hopefully the introduction of more iPad specific iOS improvements, such as multi-user support. We will see....

    If you're not excited by one of the biggest events of the year, you don't like technology. Move on.

    I've moved over to a PC now, but I genuinely hope Apple surprise everyone and in a good way.

    WWDC has always been about software

    That's not what he said, there have been numerous times hardware has been unveiled at WWDC, or announced.

    So is the whole 'bezel-less 10.5 iPad' thing totally shelved?
    An April event was rumoured. And no mention on here since that didn't happen....

    That was back before they had FOUR operating systems to cover. Pretty crazy to think that only 10 years ago we were only hearing about OS X and that's it.

    Actually, now that they dropped the X from OS X, why not!

    Wahoo! New MacBook, Mac Mini, iMa --- oh heck all the Macs...

    Wouldn't it be pleasant surprise if Apple released a new Mac Pro and the delay because of the redesign of the Mac Pro was just made up?

    Just expect nothing and you won't be disappointed. So even if they release a new color for a watch band, you might be a tad excited. But just a tad. ;)
