Apple announces WWDC ticket sales to start tomorrow

Have sixteen hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket? Me neither. But for those that do, Apple has announced that tickets for this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will go on sale at 1 PM EDT (10 AM PDT) tomorrow.

"We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers," Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in the announcement. "We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC."

Unfortunately, Apple CEO Tim Cook has already downplayed any idea that the WWDC will feature any new product releases. The WWDC is usually the time when some major Mac hardware upgrades are announced, but the WWDC has become much more of an iOS event lately.

But that won't stop the WWDC from selling out fast, real fast. So if you plan on attending I would act as if you are buying tickets for the Rolling Stones.
