Here's when Apple will reveal what's next for iOS and macOS

Apple is planning to return to San Jose again in 2018, between June 4th and June 8th this time around. (Credit: Tom's Guide) Kicking off June 4 and running all week, Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference gives software makers a chance to dive into the nitty-gritty of the company's assorted operating systems. Last year, the annual developer conference switched venues from the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco to San Jose.

You can usually expect previews of iOS and macOS updates to command large sections of the WWDC keynote.

Students are an integral part of the Apple developer community.

Apple will also be taking a page from Microsoft's and Google's books and be debuting universal apps by allowing iOS apps to run on macOS devices. Reports originating from Bloomberg indicate that the firm will be pushing for stability in this years release, and has pushed back much-requested features like a revamp of the home-screen in order to get this update right. If you apply, your name will join those of countless other developers hoping to attend, but that will be determined only by random selection.

The App Store is the most vibrant software marketplace in the world. If your name is pulled out of the hat, the credit card associated with your Apple ID will be charged $1,599 United States dollars, or the equivalent in local currency for those not living in the U.S. Improvements to Siri are also reportedly in the works, but when are they not? Apple will then randomly select developers who can then purchase a ticket for $1,599.
