Apple has just let the secret slip about WWDC 2016 dates
Every year, we look forward to the big developer conferences behind some of the most popular mobile platforms out there: Microsoft Build, Google I/O, and Apple WWDC. With Google I/O on our calendar about a month from now, and Build already in our past, that just leaves Apple to come through with WWDC 2016, but so far the company hasn’t confirmed precisely when its conference will fall. And while we still haven’t heard a formal announcement, Apple may have just gone public with WWDC 2016 dates, sharing them through Siri.
Users asking Siri when WWDC will happen are being told that Apple’s scheduled the event for June 13 through June 17. That’s not a repeat of past WWDC dates (in case you thought Siri might be pulling upon some old info), and aligns nicely with existing rumors. Perhaps Siri’s simply drawing on such rumors, but she also might have some insider information.
What can we look forward to from this year’s WWDC? New MacBook hardware could make an appearance, maybe even running a newly-re-branded macOS operating system. And while new iPhones are almost certainly still months and months away, there’s an outside chance we could see the debut of a next-gen Apple Watch model – though that’s a much more contentious position.
If this date info is accurate, at least, we’ll have our answers in about two more months.
Update: Apple has opened up registration for WWDC16 with the event taking place as expected from June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco. Registration is open now through this link until April 22 at 1pm Eastern. Attendees will be notified of their status by April 25.
