Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, where the company typically showcases the next versions of its mobile and Mac operating systems, has been set for June 10-14.

At the conference, Apple is expected to unveil the next generation operating system for the iPhone and the iPad, iOS 7, as well as the next version of its Mac computers' operating system, which could be called Mac OS X 10.9.

From time to time, Apple also uses WWDC to introduce users to new products. Last year, Apple announced the MacBook Pro with Retina display, a high-end laptop with an ultra-high resolution display, and in 2010, the company used the conference to announce the iPhone 4. There's no word yet on what, if anything, Apple may announce this year.

The Cupertino tech company said developers can purchase tickets to WWDC, which is being held in San Francisco's Moscone West conference center, starting at 10 a.m. PDT Thursday on the conference's website. Tickets will be available for $1,599 per person and they are expected to sell out fast. Last year, tickets sold out in less than two hours

“Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we’re excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps," said Philip Schiller, Apple’s head of marketing in a statement Wednesday. "We can’t wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.”
