Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, usually held at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco, California, is likely to be held between June 13th and June 17th this year, according to the venue’s own calendar of events. The dates would coincide with the period in which Apple usually holds its big developer event.
Apple has yet to announce the dates itself and is unlikely to do so until it makes tickets for the event available for purchase, but the only available dates for the event now appear to be mid June. According to scheduling information for the Moscone Center, events are ongoing throughout the period Apple usually chooses for the WWDC except for the third week of said month. This method of figuring out when WWDC will be held has proven accurate in the past, and we see no real reason for this year to be any different.
Since 2007, WWDC has been held during the first few weeks of the month of June, fitting well with the time period that is left open in the Moscone Center’s schedule, and with Moscone West the only venue that is capable of housing the huge number of attendees that WWDC is guaranteed to pull, June 13th to the 17th are looking pretty good bets right now.
Moscone Center event schedule for May and June 2016
WWDC has played host to some big announcement over the years, and this year’s opening keynote is expected to be one of the biggest yet. With iOS 10 and OS X 10.12 potentially set to get their big unveiling at the event, we could be in for a cracker. Throw in the potential for a new version of watchOS and tvOS and we’re already getting a little jazzed for what Apple may have in store.
During WWDC 2015, Apple announced OS X El Capitan, iOS 9 and the much-rumored Apple Music streaming service, which is expected to get high-res audio streaming this year.
