Apple will host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California between June 3-7 according to the 2019 events calendar from the City of San Jose’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
Though we’re without official confirmation from Apple themselves, at this point its almost certain that the WWDC conference will be held during the first week of June, despite warnings from MacRumors who were first to uncover the listings who note “Apple could change its plans at any time.”
WWDC 19 will see Apple unveil iOS 13 and macOS 10.15 among other major software updates for Apple Watch and Apple TV. iOS 13 is expected to bring Dark Mode to iPhone and iPad for the very first time, with reports suggesting this year’s WWDC conference will see Apple introduce a range of iPad-specific features as well as enhancements to HomeKit and CarPlay.
The calendar shows this year’s WWDC Bash, named “Team San Jose 2019 WWDC”, at Discovery Meadow on the evening of Thursday, June 6. The City of San Jose requires all large public events, such as the WWDC bash, to apply for a permit, and it is this which has seemingly outed the dates ahead of Apple’s official announcement.
MacRumors note The calendar entry lists an estimated attendance of 7,000 people at WWDC, consistent with last year. This total will likely include around 5,000 developers, along with 350 or so WWDC scholars, hundreds of Apple employees, and the media.
