Apple on Thursday announced that its Worldwide Developers Conference 2019 (WWDC19) will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, from June 3 to June 7. The company also launched the WWDC19 website, where developers can get session information and tickets.
WWDC19 marks the 30th anniversary of the conference, which showcases the newest features in iOS, macOS, and other Apple products. While WWDC is only for developers and not open to the general public, Apple does make major announcements during the keynote presentation, which is usually streamed online on Apple’s website (though Apple has not formally announced that the WWDC19 keynote will be available online).
