Earlier today we informed you that Siri found his tongue out and talked about the possible dates of the Worldwide Developers Conference 2016. Now, through a press release, Apple has officially confirmed the date of the event: June 13th to 17th.
The 27 WWDC takes place at Moscone West, however, the opening keynote for the event will be held this time at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (same location as the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro launch).
With four innovative operating systems and an intuitive programming language operating 1 billion devices worldwide, there has never been a more exciting time to bring together our developer community. WWDC 2016 will be a milestone for developers working with Swift code developing applications and products for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS. We look forward to seeing everyone gathered in San Francisco or through the live broadcast.
Phil Schiller, Apple's vice president of worldwide marketing.
