Apple has invited the press members to be present at the opening keynote for its annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) on June 5, 2017. The tech giant has also confirmed that it will host a keynote address as usual on June 5 to kick off the Apple WWDC 2017.

Apple's keynote at the start of Apple WWDC 2017, will take place at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. This is the venue that will also host the rest of the developer conference as previously announced by Apple. The location is a change from a few venues it has used frequently in San Francisco for the conference in the past, as reported by 9to5mac.

While the capacity is approximately the same size as the Moscone Center, where WWDC has been held several times recently, Apple's Phil Schiller noted in an interview that the venue is much closer to its campuses. This means it will make it easier for Apple engineers to spend more time with developers during the four-day conference of Apple WWDC 2017.

Apple has traditionally used the WWDC event to unveil the next version of the company's operating systems. This year Apple might unveil iOS 11, macOS 12.13, watchOS 4, and an improved tvOS, according to ZDNet.

The keynote is scheduled for 10 AM PT on June 5, the first day of the Apple WWDC 2017, and will likely play host to new product unveilings as well as our first previews of Apple's operating systems. Apple also uses the event to intro new hardware updates, with an iPad Pro and fans expected refreshes in the cards for stage time.

Apple is said to be planning a potential revealing at WWDC 2017of its much anticipated Siri Speaker. It is a product that is thought to be positioned as an Amazon Echo and Google Home competitor to bring Siri into homes as a standalone device of sorts.
