WWDC 2015 to kick off on June 8

Apple's annual developer conference is slated to kick off on June 8.

WWDC 2015

Apple yesterday announced that WWDC 2015 will kick off on June 8 and run through June 12. The event will take place at San Francisco's Moscone West event center and, per usual, will showcase upcoming versions of OS X and iOS.

"The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide," Apple's Phil Schiller said in a press release. "We've got incredible new technologies for iOS and OS X to share with developers at WWDC and around the world, and can't wait to see the next generation of apps they create."

Looking at the event invitation itself, we see the outline of what strongly resembles the form factor of an Apple TV. Not surprisingly, a revamped Apple TV, complete with its own App Store, is rumored to be in the works come June. Further, the tagline reads, "The epicenter of change." Naturally, some folks have taken this to mean that Apple has some big ideas for the Apple TV that it will introduce in June.

Aside from a new Apple TV, the big thing to keep an eye out for will be iOS 9. According to the rumor mill, Apple will use WWDC to showcase its new Beats Music streaming service. As we get closer to WWDC, the rumor mill will undoubtedly kick into high gear and we'll definitely keep you abreast of the latest rumblings about Apple's future product and software plans.
