WWDC 2012 keynote to be held at 10 a.m. Pacific on Monday, June 11

in General Discussion edited January 2014
As expected, this year's Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off with a keynote presentation, scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, June 11.

The date and time of the keynote was revealed in the official schedule for WWDC 2012 released on Tuesday. Developers can now visit the official site and sign in with their Apple ID to access the conference schedule and view session-related resources.

The developer-centric conference will feature a number of sessions to assist in creating applications for iOS and OS X, and as with previous years, the conference will begin with a keynote presentation. It is expected that Apple will use this keynote unveil iOS 6, the next major upgrade to its mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad.

Aside from the time and date, details on the WWDC 2012 keynote are unknown. Apple's schedule does not provide any information on who might be speaking, but it is expected that Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook will lead off the keynote presentation.

Not all sessions for this year's conference have been announced, which is a standard practice for Apple. The names of certain developer sessions likely will not be released until after the keynote, in order to not reveal any secret features of iOS 6.

WWDC


Also on the WWDC 2012 schedule are the annual Apple Design Awards, which the company originally announced in late April. The Apple Design Awards will take place Monday, June 11, after the keynote presentation, at 3:45 p.m. Pacific.

    What seems odd here? The keynote begins WWDC.

    As a side note this is likely where new laptops debut. Maybe some other hardware too. As such it is a date for everybody to keep track of.

    Monday. That's what seems odd.

    I hope they do a live stream for this one but I won't hold my breath.

    WWDC keynotes are always on Monday to kick off the conference. They have been as far back as I can remember. I think you are confusing them with MacWorld Expo keynotes.

    To pick up what a previous poster said about a new iMac. My version would be "Oh Apple, please announce a new Mac Pro" (after 2 years it's about time and the hardware/CPU problem has gone away). Don't get me started...

    Yes, a NEW iMac.  The same design has been used for 7 years.

    Who cares about a new design? What's wrong with the current one? To what would you change it?



    These questions have to be answered before something is changed. They haven't been.

    the current design sucks big time! Change it into something serviceable for one.

    These questions have to be answered before something is changed. They haven't been.

    They have been addressed repeatedly by numerous posters. The current iMac design has ran its course and needs a complete overhaul to become more competitive. Apples entire desktop lineup is dying from neglect and a lack of focus on customer needs, so since the iMac is part of the lineup it needs to be overhauled.

    You can plug your ears and stick your head in the ground but that won't change the fundamentals here. IMac is a very dated platform.

    The only thing 'serviceable' that could possibly be added is hard drive access. That doesn't require a case redesign.

    These sound like abject nonsense. In what way does it need to become "more competitive"? How is it "neglected"? And it seems you're rather out of touch with customer needs, which is completely excusable because of your focus on the high end.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with the iMac if you think of it like an all-in-one machine. Not meant to be easily upgraded, expanded, or serviced, similar to a laptop.



    What I think is missing from Apple's Mac line is a decent mid-range desktop. Right now you have a Mac Mini which is capped at dual-core or quad-core with low speed. Or the massive expensive Mac Pro boat anchor. If Apple would just update the Mini to have at least the power and options of the top end iMacs, that would fill the gap.

    You answered nothing here. All you did was spit out catch phrases.

    'Customer needs' like what? I'm serious. What kind of specific customer needs does the iMac and Apple's mobile line not address? Be specific. Keep in mind it's pretty much confirmed that the MBP line is set to be overhauled this quarter.

    Well, the xMac, I guess. He'll mention that.

    Ah, but it still has "Pro" in the name (unless, hopefully, Apple decides to merge the lines). So that doesn't count. image

    I think Apple looks at their numbers, and they're outperforming the 'PC' industry Q over Q. They are the 'wise men' and not let emotions get in the way.

    I second that.

    The Mac Pro is the cheapest Mac one can buy! They last something like 7 or 8 years, everyone I know just expands or replaces parts of it every now and then. Every iMac owner I know replaces theirs every 3 or 4 years, some after 2. Do the math and buy a MP. Do it now; if you wait for the latest and greatest you'll end up waiting all your life.

    What's wrong with the current one? I don't think my mid 2010 is outdated. Install a SSD PCIe card, and you're golden. If any Apple product is getting long in the tooth, it's Aperture. That is 26 months old!

    New chips are ready, hence an update should be desired. No, certainly don't buy a new Mac Pro every single revision, but the current one is deserving of an update.
