WWDC 2012 To Kick Off On June 11?

Apple events are traditionally disguised as "corporate meetings" in Moscone's calendar.

Prepare yourself for a another look at OS X Mountain Lion and a peak at iOS 6, because Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference looks set to begin in early June. San Francisco’s Moscone Center — the company’s favorite venue for WWDC — has been booked up for a mysterious “corporate meeting” for one week starting June 11.

If you head on over to the Moscone Center’s online schedule, you’ll notice that there are a number of “corporate meetings” during the coming months (which is the name often used to disguise certain events). But only one lasts for a whole week. That’s the one that begins on June 11 and ends on June 15.

Apple traditionally holds WWDC during early June, with last year’s starting on June 6, and 2010’s starting on June 7. The company uses the event to tease its upcoming software releases, like updates to OS X and iOS, and previously to announce its latest iPhone.

Last year, however, it broke that tradition by delaying its iPhone event until October. It’s unclear at this point when this year’s iPhone event will take place, but recent rumors have suggested that Apple will wait until fall once again.
