Apple WWDC 2011
In 2011, WWDC 2011 was held at Moscone West, San Francisco from June 6 to 10, 2011. The event reportedly sold out within just 12 hours of the 5,000 tickets being placed on sale on March 28, 2011. The ticket price also remained the same from the 2010 WWDC, selling at US$1,599, however, after-market pricing for tickets ranged from US$2,500 to US$3,500. 

At the keynote, Apple unveiled its next generation software: Mac OS X Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple's advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch; and iCloud, Apple's upcoming cloud services offering. Michael Franti and Spearhead played at the Bash in Yerba Buena Gardens on June 9. 

Attendees received a similar black track jacket to the one the previous year, but with a smaller "WWDC" across the front and the number "11" stitched on the back. This was the final Apple event hosted by Steve Jobs.
