Apple will host its 29th annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose from June 4 to June 8. Indeed, there'll be everything from Apple TV software through to Apple Watch, with sessions that dig into Apple's various APIs that offer developers integration with Siri, HomeKit, MusicKit, Apple Health, and more.


The random lottery ticket process for developers will launches today and ends on March 22 at 10AM PDT/1PM EDT, with winners notified by March 23 at 5PM PDT/8PM PDT. Past year at WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every category on the App Store have embraced inventive ways to engage customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world. New for 2018 will be HomePod, too, with Apple's freshly-released smart speaker intended as a hub not only for smart home technology but Siri interactions too. As always, you'll need to be a pre-existing member of the Apple Developer Program or the Apple Developer Enterprise Program to participate.


Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community. Scholarship submissions open March 26; details on how to apply are available on the WWDC website.
