It’s set; Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, will be hosted in San Francisco from June 10th to June 14th. WWDC is where Apple shows off products like new iterations or updates to Mac OS X, new software, and up until October of 2011, the newest iPhone would also be shown off at WWDC. With Apple now unveiling iPhone’s in the fall, people aren’t expecting too much this time around besides purely developer applications and software.
In other news, Apple’s App Store was opened in July of 2008 and has been a great success for Apple. As of April 2013, around 45 billion applications have been downloaded from the App Store, and the 10 billionth app was downloaded back in January of 2011. Now, with Apple about to reach 50 billion app downloads, this is a huge milestone. As such, Apple has a counter on the homepage of it’s website and on the App Store. To celebrate the occasion, Apple is giving away a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card to the person who downloads the 50 billionth app, and $500 iTunes Gift Cards to those who download the next 50 apps.
