Apple has finally provided a date for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the tech giant's first major event of the year. Despite being developer-focussed events, these events are significant to everyone else as well because it's at these events that Apple announces updates to the software that powers its iconic devices. The McEnery Convention Center will once again be home to Apple's developers from across the world.

Tickets to the conference cost US$1,599 (RM6,225) and will be distributed via random selection after a registration process ending March 22, Apple said. The company also typically releases new features for developers to integrate into apps, like it did with augmented reality previous year. The conference is primarily about Apple's software development, so we're expecting to see previews of iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.

WWDC 2018 will be held at the McEnery Convention Center, the same location as past year.

Apple is expected to unveil new details about future versions of iOS-its mobile operating system that runs on iPhones and iPads-and macOS-it's laptop and desktop operating system found in its line of Macs and MacBook computers.

Apple is also setting aside up to 350 free tickets - student scholarships - for qualified students and members of all STEM organizations.
