A perennial event on the developer calendar, Apple's WWDC has been dated for 5-9 June later this year. The week long conference is designed for developers to interact with Apple and vice versa, but for us, it also serves up glimpses at forthcoming updates for the company's various OS platforms. This includes the usual suspects in the form of iOS and macOS, but now more is expected from watchOS and tvOS too.   

While Apple has not detailed in full what WWDC 2017 will have in store, the focus will most likely be on software than hardware. That said, hopefully we could see some hints that point towards the edgeless display and function area rumours we've been hearing about the next iPhone.

Either way, Apple clearly has big plans set for WWDC, if the following statement of the conference's landing page are anything to go by.

"Technology alone is not enough. Technology must intersect with the liberal arts and the humanities, to create new ideas and experiences that push society forward. This summer we bring together thousands of brilliant minds representing many diverse perspectives, passions, and talents to help us change the world."
