    This year is no exception, as the Cupertino-based tech giant announced today that it will hold its annual developers conference (WWDC) on June 8 to June 12.

    We know Apple will show off new iOS 9 and OS X features at this year's WWDC, but what else has the company got up its sleeve?

    We've tried to include every possible information about the conference and how to attend.

    Apple's WWDC 2015 keynote will kick off at 10 am PST (that's 10:30pm to those in India) on 8 June. Apple will live stream its main keynote and select sessions throughout the week via the WWDC website and the official WWDC app.

    If you are a developer, then you can apply for tickets via the WWDC website through Friday, April 17. Tickets will be issued to attendees through a random selection process. There will also be up to 350 WWDC Scholarships available, giving students and members of participating STEM organizations around the world the chance to earn a free ticket.

    Just last year, Apple gave iOS a huge redesign with iOS 8, so we're not expecting anything crazy this year, but expect to see some minor tweaks and improvements.

    Not just that, Apple is expected to announce the next version of its desktop operating system - called OS X 10.11. As of now, not much is known about the update, but recent rumors suggested that it will be like iOS 9, that will focus on fixes and stability, instead of unveiling new features.

    Apple is likely to release a new music streaming service, something like Spotify. Bloomberg, for instance, recently claimed that Beats Music will be revamped this summer at WWDC with a new name. The new music streaming service is expected to cost $9.99 a month for individuals.

    According to several media outlets, Apple is in advance stages to launch a subscription-based streaming TV service this year. The service will reportedly cost between $30 to $40 per month and be available on iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV.

    Apple's TV setup box has come a long way. For the longest time Apple called the Apple TV a "hobby" because it was not considered profitable. Last year Tim Cook surprised everyone when he revealed that the company sold $1 billion worth of Apple TVs. Since then there's been a lot of rumors about the arrival of the new Apple TV setup box at this year's WWDC event.
