Apple announced yesterday that it will be hosting the 26th edition of its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 8 this year. The conference will go on till June 12, and developers can buy tickets for the conference on Apple’s website. All the attendees have a few guidelines to adhere to, and one that was spotted by The Verge first, was the ban of selfie sticks.

“You are not permitted to make audio or audiovisual recordings of WWDC or take professional photographic or video equipment, or wearable recording devices into Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens. In addition, you may not use selfie sticks or similar monopods within Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens,” the company elaborated in its more details page.

Tickets for WWDC are available till April 17, but these tickets usually sell out as soon as they are made available. You need to be a current member of the iOS Developer Program, iOS Developer Enterprise Program, or Mac Developer Program to be eligible to purchase a ticket.

WWDC is usually when Apple unveils the latest versions of iOS, Mac OS X and iOS devices. This year’s conference features more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs, and the Apple Design Awards. Select sessions of the WWDC will be streamed live via web and the WWDC app.
