We already knew that Apple’s developer conference, WWDC, would be running from June 13th to the 17th. But thanks to press invites, we now know the precise details of where and when the keynote will be happening.
Per TechInsider, the invite lists the keynote as happening on June 13th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Timing is 1PM ET/10AM PT, as always.
For the last few years, Apple has debuted the newest version of iOS at WWDC, and we fully expect that trend to continue. Normally, we also see upgrades to non-iPhone hardware, so new Macs and Apple TV changes may well be in the lineup.
This year, we’re also hoping to see some major improvements to Siri. Amazon and Google have both made big plays to put their smart AI assistants in people’s homes, through the Amazon Echo and Google Home respectively.
Reports have indicated that Apple has a competitor on the horizon, possibly including some kind of upgraded Apple TV with always-on Siri (and a creepy always-on camera?). We should also see third-party integrations coming to Siri, which will make your favourite digital assistant way more useful.
Either way, Apple should be livestreaming the event over the internet for us all to gawk at.
