    Hey guys, had a quick question. I realize that everybody expects iOS5 to be unveiled at WWDC at June 6th and from all the websites I read, they expect it to be unveiled on june 6th too. But isn't WWDC from june 6-10? I never went to it before so Im not sure how the schedule looks but are the big releases usually announced on the first day (the 6th in this case) and not the 7th,8th,9th, or 10th? If it is usually on the first day, what are the other days reserved for?

    June 6th is the only date we care about. That's the money ball date.

    If Steve Jobs is there, expect something new to be announced.

    Don't worry anout the other days.

    The first day (actually, the opening ceremony) is the keynote address. Thats where the announcements and demos are done.

    WWDC is the "World Wide Developers Conference". Apple uses the opening "keynote" speech to unveil new products and get everyone excited. The rest of the days are full of workshops to help developers learn how to improve their products and use Apple products to assist them in that.

    +1 Its just like every other conference out there, keynotes to make major announcements and other small seminars and workshops for everything else. Sounds like the OP has never been to a conference before.

    Which begs the question to the OP, if you are going to WWDC, why? Are you just going to see the big announcements? or are you attending the workshops to get more info on Apple development?

    OP just said that he has never been, but I don't think he said that he is going. He might just want to know when to expect the announcement.

    If you have the ability, keynote should be streamed live. Watch it.
