Apple WWDC Dates Set, iPhone 4 Expected

Today Apple announced dates for its 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference which will be held June 7-11 in the Moscone West conference hall in downtown San Francisco. Tickets are $1,600, which might be a lot for most users but given the way WWDC has been selling out in recent years it won't be enough to keep the Apple masses at bay.

Various sessions are slated to take place over the week most of which will cover iPhone OS and Mac OS X technologies, though the WWDC 2010 Web site banner leads one to believe the main focus may be centered around the iPhone, iPad and the App Store. Most of the core of the Sessions and Labs also seem to be geared around iPhone OS 4 and porting Apps to the iPad

Sessions covering the application frameworks provide in-depth information about exciting technologies for building innovative, optimized applications for Mac OS X and iPhone OS. You'll find sessions about porting your iPhone application to iPad and how to present an engaging experience for your users, developing with Cocoa Touch, and using the technologies in iPhone OS 4 that provide your application with great new features and options like multitasking, Game Center, and iAd.

The Application Frameworks Labs provide the opportunity for you to bring your code and work one-to-one with the Apple engineers who wrote the high-level frameworks in iPhone OS and Mac OS X to maximize the capabilities of your application. View session list

"This year's WWDC offers developers in-depth sessions and hands-on working labs to learn more about iPhone OS 4," said Scott Forstall, Apple's senior vice president of iPhone software, in a statement. "WWDC provides a unique opportunity for developers to work side-by-side with Apple engineers and interface designers to make their iPhone and iPad apps even better."

Many believe that not only with this year's WWDC focus on the iPhone 4 OS but that we may indeed see the newest incarnation of the iPhone itself being released. Apple revealed its previous two iPhone models — the 3G and the 3GS — at previous Worldwide Developer Conferences and there's no reason to believe Apple will change course this year.
