Apple confirms dev conference, but not much else

Fanboys head to San Francisco

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Apple developers will be heading to San Francisco in June for a five-day beano of coding and fondle-slabbing.

The conference includes stuff for iOS and Mac OS devs and will have over 100 sessions. There will be sneak previews of new features planned for Mac OSX Lion – the eighth big release of the OS. Lion is thought to be well on the way to being ready for shipping in the summer

Apple promises "to unveil the future of iOS" at the shindig. Whether this will include a finished iOS 5 or just a preview is open to debate, with the mobile update now apparently pushed back to the autumn.

And if that wasn't painful enough for the faithful, there will apparently be little new in the way of hardware on display, meaning the fondling will be confined to old kit.

The annual event runs from 6 to 10 June and it costs $1,599 to attend. Which means you've got to shift a lot of $1 apps to make it worthwhile.
