Apple's 29th WWDC developer conference scheduled to begin June 4th


Apple is planning to return to San Jose again in 2018, between June 4th and June 8th this time around.

Despite being developer-focussed events, these events are significant to everyone else as well because it's at these events that Apple announces updates to the software that powers its iconic devices. Last year's WWDC revealed iOS 11, WatchOS 4, two new iPad Pro tablets, the Apple Home Pod smart speaker, and new functionality for virtual assistant Siri.
