Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference is heading back to San Jose this coming June, as developers from around the world get ready to learn more about the tech giant's technologies.

The annual conference aims to inspire developers from all walks of life to ‘turn their passions into the next great innovations and apps that customers use every day' across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac.

According to Apple, each year during WWDC, millions of talented developers around the world learn about Apple's platform technologies ranging from programming languages like Swift to breakthrough developer APIs like SiriKit, HomeKit, HealthKit and CarPlay.

“These Apple technologies inspire developers to continue creating incredible experiences for every aspect of customers' lives and improve the way they manage their smart homes, cars, health and more for over one billion active Apple devices,” the tech giant says.

Located just minutes from Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino, WWDC 2017 will give developers access to more than 1000 Apple engineers with opportunities to meet and engage with them throughout the conference.

 In addition to the keynote address, get-togethers, sessions and labs for developers, Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week, Apple adds.

The conference will be live-streamed through the Apple Developer website ( and on the WWDC app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
