Apple has announced that this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will take place at the Moscone West centre in San Francisco from 11 June to 15 June.

Apple says that the conference will enable developers to learn about the future of iOS and OS X, where the company will “share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, Philip Schiller, said in the press release.

The event will also feature over 100 technical sessions led by Apple engineers, and will be host to the Apple Design Awards.

Developers can purchase tickets for the event at Apple’s WWDC 2012 website, but will need to get them quick, as last year’s conference sold out within 12 hours. Apple does mention, though, that any developer who misses out on tickets or is unable to attend will be able to access and watch all of the technical sessions for free on the Apple Developer website.

OS X Mountain Lion will incorporate many of the features found in iOS, but Tim Cook said at Apple’s earnings call on Tuesday that the company won’t be combining the MacBook and iPad. Cook said that it would be like a toaster-refrigerator, and that is why Microsoft’s plans to push Windows 8 out to both tablets and laptops will be a disaster.
