WWDC 2016 Lottery Ends, Apple Starts Charging Developers Who Won Tickets
The ticket lottery for Apple’s 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference ended this morning at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and it appears that some developers who have won tickets are seeing charges on their credit cards. Several MacRumors readers have had their cards charged, and there are reports of charges on Twitter.
Apple has said developers who win the ticket lottery will be notified on Monday, April 25 at 5:00 p.m. PDT, so some confirmation emails may not be sent until that time.
Apple’s ticket lottery started on Monday, April 18, giving all developers a chance to enter to win an opportunity to purchase a ticket for $1,599. For the last several years, Apple has distributed tickets via a lottery system as interest in the Worldwide Developers Conference far exceeds capacity.
350 WWDC scholarships are being provided to students and members of participating STEM organizations, and in 2016, Apple is also offering 125 scholarships to aspiring developers with financial limitations.
