Apple Sends Media Invites for WWDC 2018 Keynote On June 4, Start Time Confirmed

Apple has today sent out press invites to a variety of news and media sites for the upcoming 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference, confirming the WWDC keynote start time as well as the company’s plans to hold on Monday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Apple annual conference is targeted at the legions of passionate developers around the world who create apps and services for Apple’s major platforms, including iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Now, thanks to an official release of media invites. This year, we can expect to see new versions of software and hardware products at the conference, and it’s possible Apple will also use the event to unveil new iPad Pro models and new Macs.

This event is also an opportunity for Apple to hold an opening keynote presentation hosted by CEO Tim Cook, planning to introduce new items, which typically involves unveiling the next generation of its iOS and macOS platform. As the world’s tech media and press are invited to that opening keynote, expectations are in full flow to witness many unannounced devices and others.

Apple is rumored to be working on an updated iPad Pro that features an iPhone X-style edge-to-edge display with no Home button and support for Face ID. Although it’s not clear if the device will be ready to debut at WWDC as rumors say that it may not come until later in the year. Alongside, Apple often introduces refreshed Macs, and the iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook are all awaiting 2018 upgrades.

These media delegates will join the thousands of developers who have parted with $1,599 for a WWDC ticket for this year’s event, as well as those 350 who have been chosen by Apple to attend on student scholarships from education establishments and STEM organizations. The event itself will be held at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, which is large enough to host everyone in attendance.

Possibilities that Apple will also use the WWDC event to launch the long-awaited AirPower, a charging mat accessory is essentially a Qi-compatible product capable of wireless transferring power into multiple Apple devices that’s designed to charge iPhone X, 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models at the same time as the AirPods (with a new charging case) and the Apple Watch Series 3.

In terms of the opening keynote, Apple will announce the first official preview of iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12 and macOS 10.14 and much more. As is always the case, we will be providing up to date coverage of everything that’s announced at this year’s WWDC during the week.
