Apple will continue its long-standing tradition this year of holding its keynote address on the first day of Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), according to All Things D.
That’s right, the technology giant will take to the stage on June 10 to show delegates all of its refreshed, tweaked and brand new hardware and software at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The contents of the keynote haven’t been disclosed – no surprise there – but you can bet your bottom dollar that Apple CEO Tim Cook will make an appearance, as well as Senior Vice President of Industrial Design Jony Ive.
Apple has a lot to prove this year and rumors have already been circulating about iOS 7, the new version of its popular mobile operating system, as well as a smartwatch, Apple TV and some form of new, on-demand music streaming service similar to Rdio and Spotify.
“We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” says Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller said last month. “Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
Regardless, TNW will be at WWDC in full effect to cover all of the latest announcements as and when they happen.
Google set a pretty high bar when it unveiled a revamped Google+ and Google Maps experience, as well as a new Samsung Galaxy 4 running stock Android and its own music streaming service, called Google Play Music All Access, at its I/O developer conference last week.
The ball is in your court, Apple.
