Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference Kicks off June 4 in San Jose

CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apple® today announced it will host its 29th annual Worldwide Developers
Conference in San Jose from June 4 through June 8. The McEnery
Convention Center will be home to the world’s most creative developer
community, who come together every year to share unique perspectives and

Every year, WWDC provides an opportunity for millions of developers to
learn more about how to create new experiences across Apple’s platforms

HealthKit™, GymKit™, MusicKit™, ResearchKit® and Core ML™ — give
developers new ways to help users take command of everything from their
health and homes, to how they get around, shop and learn. Last year at
WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every
category on the App Store® have embraced inventive ways to engage
customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world.

The App Store is the most vibrant software marketplace in the world.
Available in 155 countries across iOS, macOS®, watchOS®, tvOS™ and
iMessage®, the App Store gives Apple customers access to millions of
apps to make their lives easier, enrich their passions and connect with
people around the globe. Developers and Apple enthusiasts everywhere can
livestream the conference on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV,
as well as through the Apple Developer website.
