While Apple’s annual iPhone unveiling is undoubtedly the company’s biggest event each and every year, WWDC is clearly a close second. As the event where Apple showcases its latest advancements in user design and iOS and OS X technologies, Apple’s annual worldwide developers conference typically provides us with a fascinating sneak peak at the future of mobile and desktop computing.

This year, WWDC is slated to take place from June 13 to June 17 in San Francisco at the Moscone West convention center. Interestingly enough, word of Apple's WWDC schedule this year was initially leaked by Siri. Earlier today, a number of sites noted that when you ask Siri when WWDC is, Apple's intelligent personal assistant responds with the following:

The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco. I can't wait!

Does Apple's reliance on Siri, as Re/Code suggests, perhaps signal that there's “news to come about advances in artificial intelligence?” It's possible, but it's equally plausible that Apple this year simply opted to have a little bit of fun with WWDC by incorporating Siri into the mix.

As for what Apple has in store for us at WWDC this year, well, the rumor mill has been surprisingly quiet on that front. Sure, we know that we'll finally get a good look at iOS 10, but specific features at this point remain unclear.
