  • So this is the next event, i.e. no announcement of anything else before June? Either way, LOVING it! :D
  • Hmmm, do you we'll still get a developer preview in April of iOS 5?? Unless it's mainly changes to apples own built-in apps and notification system.
  • Can anybody attend this event and of so how do you go about it to purchase tickets?
  • You can buy tickets from this link
    A word of warning, tickets are $1599 each!
  • Wow thanks for the warning, y the high price? What's included when you pay that $1,599? Anybody know?
  • A ticket for access to the WWDC.
  • It's a developer conference. Intended for people making software/hardware. Not really intended for the public.
  • You need $1,599.
  • Has WWDC ever been announced before the iOS preview event? I've really been looking forward to seeing the new software soon. Not looking forward to waiting 10 weeks.
  • No, they're typically announced after.
  • If we look at last year, the iOS preview was announced on Apr 5 and happened on April 8. WWDC was announced April 28 and happened June 7.
  • That's how I remember it in the past. Seems like they may skip the April iOS preview, leading me to believe (unless there will be 2 WWDC keynotes) that either iPhone hardware or iOS software will not be featured this year. Unless... Apple's first 3-hour keynote?
  • Too bad, that either means that the iPhone 5 won't be released until September or more likely that it won't be any different from the iPhone 4 in a major way.
    Too bad, I was really hoping for an iPhone 5 with a bigger widescreen display and with a higher resolution (my dream: no bigger dimensions than the iPhone 3G, but bigger 720p edge-to-edge screen with the legacy 960x640 in an iPad-like 3.5" emulation window so that legacy apps are as big and look and feel exactly identical on the iPhone 5 as on the iPhone 4).
  • So usually they announced the new iOS in April, released a few Beta versions and then the final in June at WWDC? And this time, the first announcement is only at WWDC? Wow, that's quite a delay, hope it doesn't extend to the iPhone 5 as well, although it's very likely... :(
  • Can't wait for it! I know iOS5 will be amazing!
