Apple's WWDC starts June 11, Mountain Lion and iOS 6 expected

Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference will take place June 11-15 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, but forget about going. That's because tickets sold out in only two hours, the fastest in the conference's history. In 2010, this took 10 days to occur, and in 2011 eight hours.

Like last year, 2012's event is expected to focus on software. Mountain Lion should be released during the event, which brings more iOS-like features to the desktop. Conversely, iOS 6 is also expected to debut at WWDC, although we seem to know a lot less there.

The proof of what's to come at this year's event comes from the statements of marketing chief Philip Schiller. "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", he says in a statement.

Apparently neither could the developers, if the fast sellout was any indication -- even though WWDC costs $1,600 per ticket, and the announcement was made during the middle of the night Silicon Valley time. Have no fear though: Apple says it will post videos of the more than 100 educational sessions in the developer section of its website.
