Apple took to its website on Friday to thank developers for their interest in WWDC 2013, while also revealing that the company will be hosting 'Tech Talks' in multiple cities this autumn.

Apple announced the dates for this year's Worldwide Developers Conference on Wednesday, and with the announcement came a surprise forewarning that tickets for the event, which sold out in two hours in 2012, would be released the following day. Thursday arrived and all 5,000 tickets for the event, which will kick off on 10 June, were snapped up within two minutes.

"Enthusiasm for WWDC 2013 has been incredible, with tickets selling out in record time" Apple wrote on its Developer site on Friday. "For those who can't join us in San Francisco, you can still take advantage of great WWDC content, as we'll be posting videos of all our sessions during the conference."

"We'll also be hitting the road this fall with Tech Talks in a city near you. Hope to see you there," Apple added.


Back in 2011, Apple hosted free Tech Talk sessions surrounding the launch of iOS 5. The roadshow made its way to nine cities, including Berlin, London, Rome and New York. During those talks, Apple showed off iOS 5 features to developers, and offered attendees an hour of wine and cheese.

This year's WWDC is expected to offer the first official look at iOS 7 and OS X 10.9, and could also see the launch of new MacBooks and a new Mac Pro.
