Doom and gloom aside, it looks like there are still a few people eager to develop for Apple’s iOS and OS X platforms. Tickets for Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference this year went on sale at 1:00 p.m. EDT and they’re already sold out according to Apple’s website — and it took less than 3 minutes for all of them to go. To put Thursday’s unbelievable sellout into context, WWDC 2011 sold out in just under 12 hours and WWDC 2012 sold out in about 2 hours. Among the highlights expected at this year’s WWDC are an overhauled user interface in Apple’s iOS 7 software and an updated version of OS X. Apple might have a few surprises in store as well, and the show kicks off on June 10th in San Francisco.
