WWDC 2013 tickets sell out in two minutes [u]
Thursday, April 25, 2013 @ 2:03pm

(Updated with corrected timing) Apple has already sold out of passes to attend WWDC 2013 in San Francisco, according to the company's website. AppleInsider notes that sales were ended just two minutes after they opened at 10AM Pacific time. The pace beats last year's record, when passes were gone in roughly two hours.



The rapid sell-out may be linked to Apple promises that it will provide early copies of OS X 10.9 and iOS 7. The company has shown off and/or distributed new operating systems at WWDC in the past, but hasn't typically made advance announcements of its intent to hand out code. Developers outside WWDC will be able to get the new software as well, but will be missing hands-on help.
