Apple confirms June date for World Wide Developers Conference

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Apple this week acknowledged that its 2007 Worldwide Developers Conference will take place during the second week of June in downtown San Francisco, two months earlier than the previous year.



The Mac maker said the annual gathering of software and hardware developers will run June 11th through the 15th, confirming dates published by AppleInsider last month.



"This June, the center of the Mac universe will be in downtown San Francisco, as developers and IT professionals from around the globe come together for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference," the company said. "Don't miss this opportunity to connect with Apple engineers, get a firsthand look at the latest technology, and spend a week getting the kind of inspiration you won't find anywhere else."



Further details, including the host venue, were not provided. However, it's been reported that the conference will remain at the Moscone West convention center.



Last year's WWDC took place during the second week of August and gave way to the first public demonstration of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, new Xeon Xserves, and the quad-core Mac Pro workstation.



This year's conference is expected to coincide with the consumer release of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and the launch of at least one new Mac system.

    Leopard



    No, May/June is the normal time frame for WWDC. Last year's WWDC in August was the odd one out.

    Woo! WWDC I can't wait!



    I've been dying for Leopard... and I'm going to assume they are going to announce the iPhone is shipping



    We all know what happens when you assume.



    I don't know about a new Macintosh system though... Maybe its time for the Mac Mini to get a new update?

    WWDC is one of the times that pro machines are often updated. The original G5, Mac Pro and Xserve Xeon systems were introduced during a WWDC. I think other Xserves were announced then too.

    If the iPhone is not shipping by then I think Steve will announce the ship date. Just because Apple said June we all know that may mean June 30



    I also believe the main topic for discussion will be an iPhone SDK. Leopard will have just come out so it's not likely that they will discuss Mac OS 10.6 till next years WWDC. Developers will have to have something new and exciting to code for otherwise this years conference will be a snoozefest as they will just be covering the same topics as last year.



    Here?s to hoping!

    Quarters are often like this:



    Jan-Mar - Winter

    April-Jun - Spring

    Jul-Sept - Summer

    Oct-Dec - Fall

    What do you think will be introduced at WWDC?



    My guess is that Leopard, iLife, iWork, a bunch of updated Macs, and the iPhone will all ship prior to this event. So, what's left? Maybe a new 12" widescreen MBP. Maybe some other new portable device.

    Lanch or refresh of a current mac? They're different things. I'm hoping an all new system.

    Hopefully, new monitors with LED backlighting, and HDMI 1.3, or equivalent inputs, but NO speakers.



    I hope we'll see other Mac upgrades before then.



    Looking further forwards, for Macworld, 45 nm chips. Express 2.

    There is a very good thread on the definition of spring around the world here:

    We probably don't need to do it again...

    That's correct. So Leopard most likely will be released at WWDC with all the secret goodness being let loose on the world.
