Apple has announced WWDC 2017 dates. The annual Worldwide Developers Conference will be held the week of June 5 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California in news first leaked by The Loop. Cupertino quickly confirmed this news in an email to developers.
This year’s WWDC returns to San Jose for the first time since 2002. During the last 13 years, the annual one-week event was held in San Francisco, California.
The McEnery Convention Center is located just minutes from Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino. This is an ideal spot, according to Apple’s Phil Schiller.
According to the report:
Schiller said that downtown San Jose is going to provide a great environment for developers attending the conference. Of course, San Jose has the added benefit of being close to Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, which should make logistics much easier for the company, especially when it comes to getting engineers on site.
Registration for the event will begin March 27.
Like in previous years, WWDC 2017 will focus on Apple’s main platforms, including macOS, tvOS, watchOS, and iOS. Watch for the annual keynote to kick-off the event beginning on June 5 at 10 a.m. PDT.

This is very early for a WWDC announcement. WWDC 2016 wasn’t announced until April 18 of last year. At the time, it was Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, which first made the announcement. WWDC 2015 also wasn’t announced until April.
You can learn more about this year’s event on the official WWDC page at Apple.com.
