Every year, Apple spearheads an event where it showcases what other stuff the company has up in its sleeves. The Worldwide Developers Convention (WWDC) is where Apple makes its biggest announcements for the year. The company just announced that the said event will take place in San Jose, CA from the 5th to the 9th of June. The announcement brings up rumours that Apple might release new products during the said event.
Normally, WWDC is held in San Francisco. However, this year, Apple is going back to its roots by celebrating the event in San Jose, the place where the first WWDC took place. The company could be paying homage to Steve Jobs as the company celebrates the iPhone’s 10th anniversary.
According to The Loop, this year’s WWDC will take place at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose. The event venue will be able to host around 5,000 developers and 1,000 Apple engineers. Perhaps the most interesting part of the event is the possibility of introducing upcoming products that might get released within the year.
On top of the list of these products is the long overdue refresh for Apple’s all-in-one computer. Rumor has it that the Cupertino tech giant will be releasing the much awaited iMac 2017 sometime this year. Many of those rumors pertain to a release date even before the end of the first half of 2017. That being said, with the event looming ever so near, there is a slight chance that Apple will announce the iMac 2017 during the said event.
Along with the iMac 2017, Apple could also be announcing its next state-of-the-art desktop operating system, the macOS Sierra 10.13. It could also be that the new OS will be announced as part of the upcoming desktop from Apple.
To make matters even more interesting, it is also possible that Apple will announce the next generation iPhone devices. This is mainly because the event may serve as a homage to the iPhone’s 10th anniversary as well. Moreoever, the new iPhone announcement could be accompanied by updates of Apple’s iOS 11.
At the moment, Apple did not imply that it will be announcing new products during the said event. However, going by programs from the previous events, the likelihood of getting a product update or two is very high. For more updates on the WWDC 2017, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
