Apple Announces WWDC 2018 Set for June 4-8 in San Jose [u]

Apple's WWDC 2018 kicks off June 4

Apple's 29th WWDC developers conference will kick off June 4th and run through June 8th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Apple typically saves its hardware announcements for standalone events, choosing to concentrate on developer-focused news during WWDC.

WWDC 2018 will be held at the McEnery Convention Center, the same location as a year ago.

The men were intent on detaining the driver because he is accused of causing this wreck, involving several vehicles. The video shows the witnesses yelling at the driver to stop, pounding on his auto and trying to open the doors.

This is breaking and will be updated. Every year at WWDC, Apple developers get an insight of what the company is working on while getting the opportunity to share their experiences with others.

Apple will talk about iOS 12 and the next version of macOS at that event. Developers and Apple enthusiasts everywhere can live-stream the conference on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV as well as through the Apple Developer website. Still, last year's show not only included a preview of the HomePod speaker but also the unveiling of the iMac Pro.

Apple has reportedly shelved many exciting features intended for iOS 12, including a home screen redesign and several app tweaks.
