Apple has confirmed that its annual developer's conference - the Worldwide Developer's Conference, or WWDC - will be held from June 3 to June 7, 2019, in San Jose, California.

Of course, the main attraction at WWDC this year will likely be iOS 13. "Blow minds" along with an image of a robot, signifying the importance of artificial intelligence. Plus, iOS 13 could also introduce iPad-specific improvements.

Apart from software, it's also expected that Apple will show off its new Mac Pro to the public, which is believed to feature an extremely modular design for far more flexibility for professional users out there.

We now know when Apple will tip its hand about what's coming to iOS, macOS and other platforms in 2019. "We can't wait to get together with them and share what's next", said Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, in the release.

It is worth mentioning here that the official schedule of WWDC 2019 is in line with what was spotted on the 2019 events calendar from the City of San Jose's Office of Cultural Affairs last month.

Tickets for WWDC 2019 start at $1,599 and can be purchased starting today until March at 5 p.m. ET. Although WWDC is primarily created to give developers a sneak peek at upcoming operating system updates, Apple has previously used the conference to unveil new hardware, including new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Pro, to name a few. "This year's program will feature technical sessions, hands-on labs and guest speakers to provide Apple's existing developer community and the next generation of app developers with the knowledge and tools to help turn their next great idea into reality".

Up to 350 WWDC student scholarships are available this year, providing students and members of all STEM organisations an opportunity to earn a free ticket and lodging at the event.
