As previously rumoured, Apple has confirmed the date for its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. It starts the 11 June. 

"At this year’s five-day conference, developers will learn about the future of iOS and OS X, allowing them to build incredible new apps. WWDC will also feature more than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers as well as the popular Apple Design Awards, a showcase of the most outstanding apps from the past year," Apple says announcing the conference.

What it doesn't say, however, is whether or not the company will be detailing the next iteration of iOS, as it has done in previous years.

“We have a great WWDC planned this year and can’t wait to share the latest news about iOS and OS X Mountain Lion with developers,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice-president of Worldwide Marketing.

According to Apple, developers will be able to explore the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X Mountain Lion and learn how to greatly enhance the functionality, performance, quality and design of their apps.
