Update: Apple has confirmed that its Worldwide Developers Conference 2016 will take place June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco. The keynote address will rock the stage at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, with the remainder of the week’s sessions at Moscone Center West. See below for registration details.

While Apple has not yet made public the dates or location for this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, apparently Siri knows when and where the event will take place.

Just ask Apple’s AI assistant “When is WWDC 2016?” and you’ll get all the details:

“The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco,” Siri reports with her classic mix of helpful data and cheerful enthusiasm. “I can’t wait!”

Each year, WWDC offers the world a provocative peek into the future of the Apple ecosystem. Apple typically shows off its latest big software updates as well as new hardware.

Tickets for the developers conference are in such high demand that Apple has taken to awarding them through a lottery system.

Siri confirms WWDC 2016 dates

Apple has yet to update its Worldwide Developers Conference web page to confirm the WWDC 2016 dates, but the June 13 start date has been rumored for months.

This year, Tim Cook and the rest of the Apple crew are expected to unveil the next versions of iOS and OS X (or maybe “macOS,” if the source code clues are correct).

We might see new ultra-thin MacBooks, supercharged by Intel’s Skylake processors, as well.

How to get WWDC 2016 tickets

Update: Registration for WWDC 2016 tickets is now open. Tickets, which will be awarded through a lottery system once again, will cost $1,599, although scholarships are available.

Here’s how to apply, according to Apple:

Developers can apply for tickets via the WWDC website now through Friday, April 22 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Tickets will be issued to attendees through a random selection process, and developers will be notified on the status of their application by Monday, April 25 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. For the second consecutive year, there will be up to 350 WWDC Scholarships available, giving students and STEM organization members from around the world an opportunity to earn a ticket to meet and collaborate with some of the most talented developers of Apple’s ever-growing app ecosystem. Additionally, this year, we will provide travel assistance to up to 125 scholarship recipients to ensure aspiring developers with financial limitations have an opportunity to participate.

Apple will also be live-streaming the keynote and various sessions on the Worldwide Developers Conference website and through the official WWDC app.
