Apple's WWDC tickets sell out in just two minutes, smashing Google I/O record

Apple's WWDC sells out in just two minutes

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Apr 25, 2013 10:33 pm

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference seems to be as popular as ever with tickets for the event selling out in just two minutes. Part of the reason tickets sold out so quickly is Apple announced when they would be going on sale a day before. Another seems to be that Apple's iOS platform continues to prove popular among developers.

Compared to last year, this year's WWDC sell out was a landslide. Last year took several hours for tickets to sell out. And tickets aren't cheap: each one will set you back $1,599, placing them out of the price range for many indie developers. Google I/O, on the other hand, has a current sell-out record of about 49 minutes.

 

Phil Schiller:

We look forward to gathering at WWDC 2013 with the incredible community of iOS and OS X developers. Our developers have had the most prolific and profitable year ever, and we're excited to show them the latest advances in software technologies and developer tools to help them create innovative new apps. We can't wait to get new versions of iOS and OS X into their hands at WWDC.
