The convention center is minutes away from Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino, and will be packed with more than 1,000 Apple engineers during the event.

Developers will be able to talk to the engineers, and attend presentations about changes in APIs, SDKs, and operating systems.

There's also the WWDC keynote where Apple usually unveils new software such as iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS updates.

The Loop interviewed Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing, who said this year's event will be around the same size as previous conferences, with about 5,000 developers accompanying the 1,000 engineers.
