Apple’s WWDC Starts on June 13th, 2016, According to Siri

Update (4/18/16 7:00 PM CST): Earlier today Siri leaked the dates for Apple's World Wide Developers Conference. Apple has now confirmed the event will start on June 13, 2016 and run through the 17th. Details of the week's schedule, events, specific locations, and planned live streams are available of Apple's dedicated WWDC webpage here. Tickets will cost $1,599 and similar to previous years, Apple will be using a lottery system to decide who can purchase one of these tickets. The company will also be sponsoring 250 student scholarships for the next generation of programmers to enjoy the conference.  

The conference will start with Apple's usual keynote at San Fransisco's Bill Graham Auditorium, where the company says it promises "exciting reveals" and will provide "inspiration and new opportunities to continue to creating the most innovative apps in the world." The rest of the week will be composed of Apple's new technology, labs, and consultations for the developers. 


This year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on June 13th. The event’s date was released a little differently this year as compared to previous years. First reported by 9t05Mac, asking Siri when WWDC is being held delivers the answer, “The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held on June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco. I can’t wait!”

The event’s date has not been formally announced on Apple’s website, suggesting that the information may have slipped a little early this year. Siri links Apple’s WWDC website page for more information but the page still displays WWDC 2015 information.

WWDC is time for Apple to preview the next major releases of iOS and OSX. Any major hardware news is still very sketchy as the conference itself is still a few months away. Viewers should expect the event to focus on Apple’s biggest products and services and where the company plans to take them in the future.
