According to Lynn Fox, Apple’s director of Mac PR, “WWDC 2006 was our most popular developer conference and we look forward to succeeding it in 2007. We will continue to keep our developers updated as different conference sessions are profiled.”
Typically, Apple uses the conference to serve as a meeting point for developers and engineers to facilitate learning about new technologies. Although the conference is closed to the general public, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has used some of the past conferences to showcase the latest advances in the company’s operating system.
Considering that the appearance of the next version of the operating system, Leopard, is scheduled for the first half of 2007, it seems possible that the official launch will take place in the macro of the WWDC itself.
