TOYMAKER TO THE WELL-HEELED Apple has set the date for its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) next month.
The cappuccino company said the conference will kick off on 11 June at 10am Pacific time, which is 6pm GMT for Brits who are too lazy to look up time zone differences.
Apple has yet to announce who will be delivering the address, but it's probably going to be its CEO Tim Cook. He's handled most of the company's major events and product rollouts since the death of Steve Jobs, who formerly always delivered announcements.
The rumour mill suggests that Apple could announce another series of Macbook Pro notebooks featuring a full size version of the Retina display seen on the company's latest Ipad, Iphone 4 and Iphone 4S. Though many prospective attendees might hyperventilate from excitement over the idea, it's doubtful that Apple will unveil a new Iphone model at the event, based on reports that we won't see an updated smartphone from Apple until later this year.
However, Apple has hinted that the keynote will include updates on its planned roadmap for both the IOS mobile operating system for Iphones and Ipads and the Mac OS X operating system for Apple desktop and laptop computers.
WWDC is always a highly anticipated event for the hordes of turtleneck wearing Apple fanbois. Tickets to this year's developer conference sold out just hours after being released to members of Apple's developer programme. µ
