Worldwide Developers Conference 2012: Apple Announces Dates, Tickets Sell Out

Time to get 'appy.'

Apple has set the dates for its huge summer event, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

This year's five-day gathering will kick off on June 11 at San Francisco’s Moscone West and will run through June 15.

According to a press release from Apple, the event will focus on Mac and mobile software and will offer developers the chance to attend lectures and workshops hosted by Apple engineers, in addition to other activities.

“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, per the release.

So will Apple trot out any new products at the conference?

Last year, Apple debuted iOS 5, OS X Lion and iCloud at WWDC 2011, so it seems likely that we'll get our first glimpses of iOS 6 on June 11 and perhaps a new look at (and possibly a release date for) the recently announced OS X Mountain Lion.

New rumors suggest that Apple may even launch new MacBook Pros at WWDC 2012.

But don't expect to see the iPhone 5. HuffPost Tech's Jason Gilbert thinks the next iPhone won't show itself until the fall. (Click here to find out why.)

WWDC 2012 tickets, which Apple sells for $1,599 a pop, sold out within two hours on Wednesday. MacRumors reports, "The quick sellout comes even as Apple imposed new restrictions this year limiting ticket sales to registered iOS and Mac developers and limiting the number of passes available per developer group."

For those unable to attend, Apple will post live streams of the event at
