Apple Offers Peak at WWDC, But Remains Secretive

Apple (AAPL) announced today that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held on Monday June 10 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center and is expected to last through the 14th.

I don't think anyone is surprised by the fact that Apple is hosting the WWDC on this date -  this as this is long been the expectation. Also not a surprise is that tickets for the event have been sold out.

Unfortunately, Apple didn't share the agenda items for the event, nor did the company say who will be the keynote speakers. Given Apple's propensity for secrecy and drama, this too should not have come as a surprise, which leaves us to speculate.

To that end, it's safe to assume that CEO Tim Cook will lead the presentation. It's worth noting here that Apple did, however, mention that it will highlight new releases of its OSX and iOS. We can also expect to see an upgraded MacBook that features Intel's (INTC) new Haswell processor.

It's also been widely speculated upon that Apple will unveil is music streaming service that rivals Pandora (P) and Spotify.

Google (GOOG) beat Apple to punch last week when the search giant unveiled its own music service, which prompted many (including yours truly) to wonder not only about Pandora's status, but what it might mean for satellite radio giant Sirius XM (SIRI).

For now, however, it's anyone's guess as to what Apple is going to do or say at the WWDC. But we do know, there will be plenty to say about it afterwards.
