Apple has announced that its 2013 Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will take place from June 10-14 at Moscone West convention center in San Francisco. The five-day event will provide developers with a first look at the future of iOS and OS X.
Tickets, which will be priced at $1599, will go on sale tomorrow, April 25, at 10 a.m. PDT.
In past years, Apple has put tickets on sale simultaneously its announcement, but with tickets selling out in shorter and shorter amounts of time, it appears that Apple has decided to announce the on-sale time a day early in order to give developers equal chances at obtaining tickets. Tickets for WWDC 2012 sold out in less than two hours.
As was the case last year, Apple’s requirements for purchasing a ticket to WWDC include membership in one of the company’s paid developer programs. With the advance notice of ticket sales, Apple is also requiring that developers have been members of a paid program prior to today’s announcement, preventing last-minute signups.
Developers between the ages of 13 and 17 must also have their tickets purchased by a parent or guardian who is also a member. Tickets are limited to one per person and five per organization.
Like it has done in previous years, Apple is offering scholarships for students to attend WWDC. Students must be at least 13 years old and a member of the iOS developer program. To apply, each student must create an app that’ll showcase their coding skills, background and interests. Apple will be giving away up to 150 tickets to eligible students, and applications must be received by May 2, 2013 at 5:00 pm PDT.
