The conference, which is the largest of its kind aimed specifically at iOS and OSX developers, will take place from 10 to 14 June 2013 in its regular home at San Francisco's Moscone West conference centre.

"Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we're excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can't wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC," Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, said in a statement.

In addition to a first look at the newsest Apple mobile and desktop software, delegates can also attend technical sessions, get access to Apple engineers running hands-on labs, and the opportunity to network with thousands of other Apple developers.

Tickets for the event go on sale at 10AM PDT (6pm BST) on 25 April, but if you're interested you'll likely have to move fast — last year's WWDC 2012 sold out in record time.

Each ticket costs $1,599 (£1,047) and you'll need to be a member of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or the Mac Developer Program, Apple notes on its WWDC website. Tickets are limited to one per person, or five per organisation.
