Apple sets official dates for its annual developer conference, which may be used to unveil numerous hardware or software products.

Mac maker Apple (AAPL 0.11%) has now set official dates for its Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC. The annual conference will be held from June 10 through June 14 in San Francisco. Apple hosts the event each year and gives developers a preview of new software features that the company is working on.

Years ago, Apple used the WWDC opening keynote for major product introductions, most notably with the iPhone for several years. There has been speculation that Apple may launch new iPhones this summer, in which case WWDC could be used to the same end. CEO Tim Cook, however, hinted last night that iPhones may not be due out until this fall.

Apple will almost surely unveil iOS 7 at WWDC, the next major version of its mobile platform. This version may see a significant aesthetic overhaul under the direction of design head Jony Ive.

Microsoft is hosting its own Build developer conference at the same venue just weeks after WWDC.
