Apple announces date for software event

Today Apple announced it will host its 29th annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose from June 4 through June 8. The yearly event has become one of the most important in the calendar, and not only for people creating apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Tickets to the conference cost US$1,599 (RM6,225) and will be distributed via random selection after a registration process ending March 22, Apple said.

Steel stocks down following Trump's decision to slap tariffs on imports
New Mexico's congressional delegation is anxious about President Donald Trump's decision to hike tariffs on steel and aluminum . Mr Ciobo said that "we are in choppy waters" in terms of the global trade environment. "Now we have a different approach".

As we noted when the dates were announced in February of previous year, the decision made sense at the time, given the rapidly rising cost of living in SF and the fact that the show needs some room to grow. However, Apple often reveals new devices during the keynote of WWDC, and this year we're tentatively expecting to see a new MacBook Air with a Retina display, and likely some new iPads, possibly with Face ID.

The full program that Apple has made available is below. Apple says, "This summer, we invite thousands of talented minds from around the world to join us and turn their ideas into reality". Details on how to apply can be found on Apple's website. Indeed, there'll be everything from Apple TV software through to Apple Watch, with sessions that dig into Apple's various APIs that offer developers integration with Siri, HomeKit, MusicKit, Apple Health, and more.
