Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote will take place Monday, June 2 at Moscone West in San Francisco, according to a schedule for the conference just released via the company’s iOS applications for the event. The keynote traditionally gets things started on the first day of the developer-focused event, but this sets in stone the actual date and time.
At Apple’s WWDC keynote, we’re typically given our first looks at the future of iOS and OS X, with new versions previewed prior to a developer launch of the software. This year, the pool of those given early access could spread beyond just developers, as Apple launched an early look program aimed at the general public for OS X pre-release software in April. iOS 8 is also widely expected to get its first look at the event, with rumored inclusion of health and fitness tracking features as well as improvements to Maps.
As a final tantalizing tidbit, 9to5Mac’s sources report that we’ll see new hardware unveiled during the keynote, too. Apple typically reveals at least one consumer hardware update during the event, despite the developer focus. In recent years, this has taken the form of new Macs, like the Mac Pro sneak peek reveal at WWDC 2013, and the new Haswell MacBook Airs launched on the same day.
