It’s not a big deal, but in a human touch, Tim Cook just acknowledged the difficulties Apple had accomodating all the developers who wanted to go to WWDC 2013 this year.

“We apologize for not being able to have more developers here,” Tim Cook said. “This is the largest venue we can hold WWDC in.”

This is a nice nod to the controversy that erupted after Apple’s WWDC 2013 tickets sold out after just two minutes this year. Of course, the biggest issue isn’t just capacity: Apple’s ticketing system fell over in demand this year. But it’s still nice to hear Tim Cook acknowledge the difficulty so many developers have had getting to WWDC.

Let’s hope they manage better next year. In the meantime, Apple is posting all of its conferences online.
