WWDC took place June 4-8, 2018 and June 5-9, 2017 at McEnery, so it would be natural if WWDC 2019 was scheduled in the same week in June. The uncomplicated conference has been hosted in the first half of June each year since 2007 and at McEnery especially since 2017.
While we were already confident that WWDC 201
In our ongoing research, we discovered that San Jose requires permission for major public events such as Apple's WWDC Bash, which took place at the Discovery Meadow Park next to McEnery in 2018.
Following this thread, we ended a 2019 event calendar from San Jose's cultural city, which shows this year's WWDC Bash at Discovery Meadow on Thursday, June 6. The event is called "Team San Jose 2019 WWDC" and is organized by "Apple." An identical WWDC entry was listed in the Office of Cultural Affairs 2018 Event Calendar for the actual WWDC 2018 Bash.
In February, MacRumors revealed exactly that WWDC 2018 should be held June 4-8. Apple officially announced the dates of March 13 last year, so we could be one month from the official announcement. We've come out to Apple for comment, even though it rarely discusses the plans until it's ready.
WWDC tickets have been priced at $ 1,599 in recent years and randomly distributed via lottery. To enter the lottery last year, developers had to be a member of the Apple Developer program before Apple's official WWDC date announcement March 13, so be aware to sign up now if you hope to participate.
The calendar entry shows an estimated attendance of 7000 people at WWDC, in accordance with last year. This sum is likely to include around 5,000 developers, along with 350 or so WWDC scholars, hundreds of Apple employees and the media. Apple is expected to announce iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6 and tvOS 13 at the event.
Update: All mentions of WWDC and Apple have been removed from the 2019 event calendar, but the June 6 event at Discovery Meadow is still listed with "Team San Jose" as the organizer. Apple probably only covers the tracks it has done several times before when the information has leaked in similar ways.
Note: While we are sure of these dates, Apple may change its plans at any time. MacRumors cannot be held liable for any airline ticket or accommodation booked from this information.
