Apple announced today that the 30th Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will kick off on Monday, June 3, this year, and last until Friday, June 7. Like last year, this year's WWDC will also be held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in California.
"WWDC is Apple's biggest event of the year. It brings thousands of the most creative and dedicated developers from around the world together with over a thousand Apple engineers to learn about our latest platform innovations and to connect as a community," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "Our developers are incredibly passionate about creating the next generation of mind-blowing experiences for the world through apps. We can't wait to get together with them and share what's next."
Developers can now sign up for WWDC. As in previous years, Apple will select developers with the help of the lottery system. The WWDC ticket price is $1,599, and only developers selected by Apple can purchase tickets and participate in WWDC. Meanwhile, the company is offering up to 350 WWDC Student Scholarships, where winners will receive a free WWDC ticket, free lodging, and one-year membership for the Apple Developer Program.

On the first day of WWDC, Apple will hold a Keynote, where they expected to unveil new operating systems, and sometimes new hardware products. On this year's WWDC, we will be welcoming iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13, and watchOS 6. In addition, the new modular Mac Pro is also likely to be debuted at this year's WWDC. The keynote, however, will be live streamed.

According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, Apple plans to allow developers to write universal apps in 2021, supporting both the iPhone, iPad and Mac platforms. Known as Marzipan, Apple's Universal App initiative let developers easily develop apps that run on iPhones, iPads, and Macs simultaneously.



Apple plans to let developers port their iPad apps to the Mac platform using a brand new SDK, it could be released by the company as early as June of this year at WWDC 2019, where they typically release the next-generation iOS and macOS operating systems. Apple previewed the plan, even though without disclosing the road map, at the WWDC last year. 
The ultimate goal of the multistep initiative, code-named "Marzipan," is by 2021 to help developers build an app once and have it work on the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers, said people familiar with the effort. That should spur the creation of new software, increasing the utility of the company’s gadgets.
It should be noted, however, that Apple has repeatedly emphasized that it will not integrate iOS and macOS operating systems. Finally, the development of the Universal App also means that in the future, Macs will adopt Apple's own designed CPU, which is the Kalamata project.

On the other hand, Bloomberg reports Apple is considering to preview the Mac Pro at the WWDC in June this year. The modular Mac Pro will be a high-end product for professional users that can be easily upgraded. In addition to the Mac Pro, Apple is likely to release a 31.6-inch 6K resolution display with the new mini-LED backlight technology as well.

According to Apple executives Craig Federighi and Phil Schiller, they are committed to making Mac Pro the most high-end desktop computer, supporting VR and high-end video production. Apple has formed a "professional workflow team" designed to meet professional users needs and optimize Mac Pro and other Apple products.

According to MacRumors, who has found evidence that the 2019 Worldwide Developer Conference to be held from June 3rd to 7th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. where Apple is likely to announce iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13 at the place.



A source confirmed to MacRumors that the McEnery Conference Center will hold a large annual event from June 3rd to 7th. Subsequently, the site found new clues on the 2019 event calendar of the San Jose City Cultural Affairs Office, which listed on June 6th (Thursday) this year, Apple will host an event called "San Jose Team 2019 WWDC", at Discovery Meadow Park next to the McEnery Convention Center. which basically confirmed that this year's WWDC will begin on the week of June 3.
While we were already confident the WWDC 2019 dates would fall on June 3-7, we confirmed with a source that a large annual event of some kind will be taking place during that week at McEnery. [...] Following that thread, we unearthed a 2019 events calendar from the City of San Jose's Office of Cultural Affairs that lists this year's WWDC Bash at Discovery Meadow on the evening of Thursday, June 6. The event is named "Team San Jose 2019 WWDC" and is organized by "Apple.
However, MacRumors pointed out that Apple may change the plan at any time. The site has also issued a disclaimer reminding users to wait until Apple releases official announcement before making a travel plan. In mid-March last year, Apple officially announced the date of WWDC 2018, and a month before that, MacRumors reported that Apple's 2018 WWDC event will be held from June 4th to 8th.

As we getting more and more closer to Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conferences (WWDC), many people are trying to make Siri reveal some hidden messages about the event. And today, we did discovered some of the surprises that Apple planned for this year's most hyped Keynote.

Firstly, when we ask Siri "Tell me about WWDC", the assistant responds "I'm gonna have a shiny new home! Well, not really shiny, more meshy and matte." This could hint a new hardware, as the mention of mesh implies the new home for Siri will be some form of speaker, which is in line with the rumored cheaper Beats HomePod we reported last weekend!


Next up, we asked same question again, this time, Siri claims that it will getting "a lot" smarter, which suggesting it will most likely gain new capabilities. The virtual assistant do need to take a big step to improve its functions, several tests shows that it lags behind Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa when it comes to answering queries.

Finally, Siri leaks that a brand new voice will be added to itself, but, wasn't Apple already introduced a more modern voice last year? Siri has also told us that "so many good things" to be announced during WWDC.
