Apple is to hold its annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) from June 10 to June 14 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. The event is expected to see the release of the firm’s latest operating systems for iOS and Mac.

The company has detailed that the five-day event will play host to more than 100 technical sessions from over 1,000 Apple engineers, as well as the Apple Design Awards, which pick out the best apps available on both the App Store and Mac App Store.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. PDT and while these are expensive, TUAW believes that Apple is planning to allow registered Apple developers to view all session videos online during the conference.

“We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, in a prepared statement.

“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.”

Apple will almost certainly take the wraps off iOS 7 -- its latest mobile operating system for iPad and iPhone -- at the WWDC but new hardware may be absent, judging by CEO Tim Cook’s comments when reporting the company’s latest quarterly earnings yesterday.

"Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software and services that we can't wait to introduce in the fall and throughout 2014," said Cook during a conference call with analysts.
