WWDC before 1988?[edit]

It's stated that WWDC began in 1983, but the table of events only goes back to 1988? This makes the article a bit confusing to read. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:03, 6 June 2017 (UTC)


The 2003 WWDC was scheduled to be in San Jose from May 19-23, but the location and dates were changed at a very late date, causing some attendees to complain about having to change travel plans at the last minute. --Luciuskwok 16:33, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Baseline Mac Pro?[edit]

What exactly do y'all mean whhen you say "baseline" Mac Pros? Do you mean the lowest settings possible or the retail settings? 23:29, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Apple has assigned a baseline configuration for the Mac Pro, the 2.66 GHz, 1 Gb RAM configuration. This is the model that would be found in retail stores, all other configurations are build-to-order. Beta34 23:37, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Your data corresponds to the default configuration (including a 250GB 7200UPM S-ATA hard drive), which is currently priced at ca. $2500. The data in the article corresponds to the minimum configuration (i.e. what you get when you select slower processors and less hard disk capacity), which comes at a discount of several hundred dollars compared to the default configuration.
I also thought "baseline" refers to the default configuration, until I read the technical data in the article (which I know is the minimum). Now if the both of us got confused about this, it suggests that the wording is ambiguous. "Minimal configuration" would be more readily understood. Aragorn2 19:19, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
By default configuration, I mean "retail configuration", just to avoid introducing another source of confusion... It is identical to the configuration the Mac Pro online customization page defaults to. Aragorn2 19:22, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


This article, especially the WWDC 2006 section, is written with a heavy bias towards Apple. Themodernizer 02:48, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't see any particular bias towards Apple. I mean, is it not an Apple event? There isn't even any issue to debate, the WWDC 2006 section is pretty much just a summary of the Keynote speech, and the reported facts and figures therein. --Beta34 23:37, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Huh? How exactly do you feel the article is "heavily biased" towards Apple, apart from the fact that it doesn't say how great Windows Vista will be when it finally comes out? The WWDC 2006 section is mostly just a list of market facts and product information that were announced at this event. "NPOV" does not mean "never mention anything that could make Apple products sound fun or useful", anyway. Aragorn2 19:32, 5 September 2006 (UTC)


I could have sworn there was a WWDC in 2002...

Their was, but at this point no one added information about it. I think Apple announced it stopped all development of OS 9, previewed Jaguar, and announced development of rack mounted servers; but if someone could confirm this with sources. WikipedianYknOK 03:00, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


I've heard that a prominent wall street analyst and some other people have made predictions as to what will happen in this years WWDC. Would that sort of thing belong here? Mathwhiz90601 09:32, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

WWDC 2007[edit]

About an hour or two after the World Wide Doveloper's Conference today, I updated the WWDC 07 section with the products and features that Jobs introduced today. Later, someone reverted the change. Just incase you're wondering, the WWDC 07 has already happened. It needed to be updated.

Thanks, 20:34, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Dates and Locations?[edit]

In an earlier version of the article dates & locations of earlier events were posted. Shall we add these again? Personally, I was looking for them in this article.

Locations and dates of recent WWDCs:

WWDC 08 has rumors, not facts![edit]

As stated above, the WWDC subsection has rumors which have not been verified by Apple. These should be removed until tommorrow, when the conference is held. Jordsta (talk) 05:42, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

WWDC 08 keynote address[edit]

I have the keynote address on mpg file, should & how do I put it on this page? plz contact me: Alon -

Rename Article[edit]

Needs to be renamed from "Worldwide Developers Conference" (implies it applies to *ALL* developers) to "Apple Worldwide Developers Conference" —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:38, 26 October 2008 (UTC)


Several of the references point to has been deleted (not just taken offline) so those references now point to a 404. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:09, 25 May 2010 (UTC) References[edit] is dead, it appears. I don't know if this is from today, but it certainly came as a shock to me. LeftClicker (talk) 20:18, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and one more thing ...[edit]

How can an article on the Worldwide Developers Conference and not mention the introduction of the first iPhone

"Oh, and one more thing ... " ?
At WWDC 2002, Steve Jobs famously kicked off the event by giving a eulogy for Mac OS 9 as part of the transition to OS X; in 2009, Snow Leopard — the last version of OS X before Apple’s rebranding of “iPhone OS” to “iOS” — was officially unveiled at WWDC in front of over 5,200 developers; and in October 2010, Lion, the eighth major release of OS X, was formally announced and demoed at Apple’s self-hosted “Back to the Mac” media event.


"In 2004, WWDC 2004 took place from June 28 to July 2." "In 2005, WWDC 2005 took place from June 6 to June 10." "In 2006, WWDC 2006 took place from August 7 to August 11 in Moscone West, San Francisco with the keynote presentation hosted by Steve Jobs." "In 2007, WWDC 2007 took place from June 11 to June 15 in Moscone West, San Francisco with the keynote presentation hosted by Steve Jobs." "In 2008, WWDC 2008 took place from June 9 to June 13 at Moscone West, San Francisco." "In 2009, WWDC 2009 took place from June 8 to June 12 at Moscone West, San Francisco" "WWDC 2010 was held at Moscone West, San Francisco from June 7 to June 11, 2010." "In 2011, WWDC 2011 was held at Moscone West, San Francisco from June 6 to June 10, 2011." "In 2012, WWDC 2012 is scheduled to be held at Moscone West, San Francisco from June 11 to June 15, 2012."

You get my point? :) Shouldn't we put the dates and locations into a table? (talk) 11:59, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

I concur gujamin (talk) 21:44, 18 June 2012 (UTC)


The "Description" section is marked as lacking of references. The only reference I could find about "All attendees have to sign a non-disclosure agreement covering the sessions and other material handed out at WWDC" is the following:

Content presented at WWDC is subject to your applicable Apple Developer Program agreement(s). Taking photographs, recording video and engaging in any form of live blogging during WWDC sessions is expressly prohibited.

Break each WWDC into a separate header[edit]

This page is a disaster currently. I highly suggest that instead of having a broad "2010s" section, that each event would get their own section on this page. This would simplify it a lot, and make it a pleasant read. More images would be great too. --Pauldunahoo (talk) 20:00, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

This page is still a disaster and in desperate need of citations, at the very least. I have revised as much as I could today, including removal of numerous repeat Wiki links, but a lot of further work is required.--Soulparadox (talk) 08:31, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
