Apple notifies winners in the WWDC ticket lottery, offers a chance to buy a ticket until April 14


WWDC 2014

Apple has just sent out emails notifying entrants in the WWDC ticket lottery whether they won a chance to purchase a $1,599 ticket to the conference. Winners will be able to purchase a ticket to the event before April 14th. The conference kicks off on June 2nd and runs through the 6th.

Those who didn’t win a spot haven’t gotten any notification from the company (Update: rejection emails going out now, see below). Those unable to buy a ticket will have to settle for watching the stream of the keynote presentation and recorded videos of the sessions after they happen. If you just want to read all of the announcements early, why not check out 9to5Mac‘s roundup of what to expect this June?

Update: Rejection emails are starting to go out to developers now. If you haven’t heard from Apple yet, there’s still a chance you could end up with a ticket.

    This new system seems to be somewhat more effective. A lot less chaotic for certain.

    I misunderstood, I thought the lottery was for a few FREE tickets for people, which would have been pretty neat. But like themis said, this does make for a good way to do it.

  6. I’ve received a “winner letter”, going to buy my ticket today.
    It will be my first WWDC, see you there.

    Greetings from Ukraine:)
