Apple’s 28th annual “Worldwide Developers Conference” (WWDC) will be held at the McEnery Convention Centre in San Jose, California from June 5-9, the company said in a statement.

“WWDC 2017” will give developers access to more than 1,000 Apple engineers with opportunities to meet and engage with them throughout the conference.

“Each year during WWDC, millions of talented developers around the world learn about Apple’s breakthrough platform technologies ranging from programming languages like Swift to breakthrough developer APIs like SiriKit, HomeKit, HealthKit and CarPlay,” Apple said.

The conference will be live-streamed through the Apple developer website (developer.apple.com/wwdc) and on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

In addition to the keynote address, get-togethers, sessions and labs for developers, Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week.

As global smartphone sales to end-users hit 432 million units in the fourth quarter of 2016 — a seven per cent increase over the like period in 2015 — Apple finally leapfrogged past Samsung after eight sluggish quarters to secure the top spot.

Riding on the success of iPhone 7 and Apple Watch, the Cupertino-based company recently announced an all-time record revenue of $78.4 billion for the first quarter of 2017 that ended on December 31. International sales accounted for 64 per cent of the quarter’s revenue.

When it comes to India, the Silicon Valley-based global firm will soon start manufacturing iPhones in Bengaluru.
