Apple has begun decorating San Francisco's Moscone West convention center in preparation for WWDC 2013, which is set to kick off on Monday.

Banners now grace the walls of the venue of this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, featuring the WWDC 2013 logo first unveiled when Apple announced the dates of the event in April. In addition, the banners feature the tagline "Where a whole new world is developing."

Apple on Monday released its WWDC 2013 companion app, providing attendees with maps and schedules for the conference, developers unable to attend the event with daily videos from the event, and everyone else with the latest news. The app sports a flatter, more minimalist design than previous years – a style expected to be on its way for the entire iOS user interface with iOS 7.

Apple has said that developers will be treated to an "in-depth look" at the future of iOS and OS X during WWDC, which we expect means the unveiling of iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. Apple could also use WWDC 2013 to launch new Macs, including a new Mac Pro, as well as MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lineup refreshes.

All 5000 tickets for WWDC, which set developers back more than £1000 each, sold within two minutes of going on sale in April, a new record for Apple. Last year, it took around two hours for the tickets to sell out.
