Apple today confirmed that it will hold its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 2 through June 6 at San Francisco's Moscone West.

The company also hinted that it will unveil the "future of iOS", suggesting that the much expected iOS 8 will be announced at the conference.

The company typically announces its iOS update at the conference, and then releases it a few months later when it announces its annual iPhone upgrades. The early announcement of the iOS software does often offer hints as to what to expect when the phones come to market later this year.

"We have the most amazing developer community in the world and have a great week planned for them," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "Every year the WWDC audience becomes more diverse, with developers from almost every discipline you can imagine and coming from every corner of the globe. We look forward to sharing with them our latest advances in iOS and OS X so they can create the next generation of great apps."
