Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off June 8th, 2015 at 10 AM PST. WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference where they typically uncover the future of the company’s mobile and desktop operating systems and occasionally they have a few tricks up their sleeves. Though the PocketFullOfApps team won’t be there to cover it in person, we will be watching the stream live and will be keeping our readers up to date.
Thanks for joining me Jack Cooksey and my colleague Peter Cao as we covered WWDC 2015.
Make sure to pay attention to the website and follow us on twitter @Pocketfullofapp for all the latest news from WWDC as it happens.
