Those with an Apple developer account can head over to the schedule page and login for all the WWDC 2012 time and location details, or alternatively do the same through the official app for iPad and iPhone, which you can grab here.

The big announcements will likely be reserved for this year’s keynote, which will take place on June 11th from 6-7:30 AM BST. That’s a 6pm UK kick-off time. Hosted by Apple CEO Tim Cook, expect a full run-down of the new features for OS X, and a glimpse of what’s in store for iOS devices.

As well as Apple’s software developments, rumour has it that WWDC 2012 will see the grand unveiling of this year’s Macbook Pro and Macbook Air models. Expected to be a massive redesign for the line, it is thought the new machines will feature hi-resolution Retina Displays, Intel Ivy Bridge processors and SSD drives as standard.
