It was already all but official. Now it is official: Apple will kick off its WWDC developer confab in San Francisco with a keynote on June 11.
It seems safe to assume that the keynote will feature Apple CEO Tim Cook and other execs, and that the topics will include Mountain Lion and iOS 6. And, with any luck, a new Mac or two…and hey, wouldn’t it be fun if there were some utter surprises?
(No, an Apple HDTV wouldn’t count as an utter surprise — which is fine, since it seems unlikely that it’ll be part of the event, even if it exists.)
Whatever transpires, I’ll be in the audience at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, and will live-blog the news as it happens right here on TIME.com. Our live coverage, cohosted by Doug Aamoth, will start at 1pm ET (10am PT) at techland.com/wwdc12. (You can head there now to set up an e-mail reminder.)
Hope to see you there. The real-time commentary you guys provide is always a highlight — and, oftentimes, more perceptive than some of the analysis provided by full-time tech pundits.
