Apple has announced the dates for its annual WWDC 2018 conference where it is going to for the first time, reveal the new products of the year. The company has said that developers can apply for tickets from now until 22 March through Apple's WWDC site, and tickets will be issued by 23 March 23rd. Apple's keynote WWDC 2018 will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

The new iPads, which could replace the current 12.9-inch and 10.5-inch versions, will sport slimmer bezels (the border between the screen and the edge of the device) and no home button, according to Jun Zhang, analyst at Rosenblatt Securities. A (PRODUCT) RED version of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is also a possibility, Zhang speculates, in a similar vein to the red iPhone 7 which went on sale past year.

The Five-day Keynote event will focus on newest versions of iOS 12 and other Apple's platforms like macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, tvOS 12, watchOS 5 and new software for Homepod as well.

You can download the WWDC app from the App Store for free. The city's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium played host in 2016, before the company relocated to the McEnery Convention Centre a year ago.

Apple is rumored to fix bugs, update the hardware on the iPads and also updating iOS software.
