Apple Announces WWDC Dates; iPhone 5 To Debut On June 6th?

We told you so! Apple has confirmed that the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference will be held between the 6th and the 10th of June in San Franciso at the Moscone West conference centre.

Those interested in the event which will focus on the "future of iOS and Mac OS X" will have to pay $1599 to attend it; note that this is an Apple developer-only event taking place over five days with in-depth technical sessions and hands-on labs.

The technology sessions have yet to be detailed; they will include focus on Application Frameworks, Graphics, media and Games, Developer Tools, Internet and Web as well as Core OS (which for some reasons pays a tribute to Unix with a large logo).

As per the previous WWDCs, there will be a number of special events including the Apple Design Awards 2011 which will reward "outstanding achievement and excellence iPhone, iPad and Mac App design".

Many, including ourselves, are expecting the iPhone 5 to be launched on the first day of the WWDC as it has been the case for the previous editions and we event came up with the 6th June as the probable date of the launch back in November 2010.

The smartphone is expected to inherit most of the components (and technology) as the iPad 2; with the same system on chip, memory components, baseband components etc.
