Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference runs from 8-12 June this year, and registration for the event has officially opened. Not everyone will be able to attend, and the registration is only for a chance to buy tickets to the event.
Apple is expected to announce new versions of OS X and iOS at WWDC, which has become a tradition of sorts as of late. There’s no news on what might be coming with the new OS X 10.11, and barely any more is known about iOS 9 (although most expect stability upgrades). That being said, the tag line for WWDC15 happens to be “The epicentre of change”, which may indicate that Apple is preparing to drop some radically new ideas on the world.
Tickets to WWDC15 will be sold on random ballot, with interested parties registering through Apple’s website. Registration runs until 17 April, which is this Friday, and the selected names will be notified on the following Monday. That being said, Apple will automatically charge the selected people for the entry ticket through their Apple account once they are chosen.
Previous years have seen tickets for WWDC sold out in minutes, which is probably what has lead to this random selection method. Which is probably a better idea for selling these kinds of tickets, although it may annoy some of the Apple faithful.
Anyone who is interested in attending WWDC15 can register for the chance to buy a ticket at the official website. However, note that a single ticket costs US$1599 (about RM5900); and that is just to get through the front door.
