Apple, who until now did not confirm the official date of this year’s World Wide Developers Convention (WWDC) but rumors on the web stated it would be in June, has now come out to acknowledge that the aforementioned convention has indeed been scheduled for June. The WWDC will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, US, will debut on the 8th of June and will come to a close 4 days later, on the 12th of June.

“The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is the premier technical event for developers and IT professionals innovating with Apple platforms. Over 1,000 Apple engineers will be at Moscone West to present the latest Apple technologies and provide you with code-level guidance. You’ll learn how to harness the power of iPhone OS, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, and Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard in the most efficient and sophisticated way possible — saving you time and accelerating your development. Bring your MacBook and your imagination, and prepare to make your ideas happen, says Apple on the WWDC web page which is now up and running – visit here.

The only thing that has not been confirmed is Steve Job’s attendance at the convention. The WWDC opening speech may not be held by Steve Jobs this year as he is supposed to be on medical leave since the end of June, and as such he may just pass on the event. Of course, there is the change that he may cut his medical leave short and show up anyway – we’ll just have to wait and see.

The main attractions of the convention will be the iPhone OS 3.0 and Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard. According to Apple Insider, the Snow Leopard will be showcased with a bunch of new features, including an overhauled UI (user interface).

Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Leopard WWDC 2009 highlights, as reported by Apple Insider:

“Next Snow Leopard builds to include big changes
Snow Leopard to be wrapped in new interface ahead of launch
WWDC to offer finalized preview, release date
Snow Leopard to hit retail within two months of WWDC
Upcoming iPhone OS 3 beta to activate live Push Notification support”
