Earlier on Tuesday, April 14, Apple announced that its Worldwide Developers Conference would take place between June 8 and June 12.
Now that the Attendance Policy has been released and combed through, an interesting detail has been discovered. As is usual for these types of events, there are certain devices, gadgets and accessories that aren’t allowed, especially in certain areas. This year, Apple has apparently decided that selfie sticks are not to be allowed at the conference:
In addition, you may not use selfie sticks or similar monopods within Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens.
Selfie sticks are certainly starting to get plenty of attention, but considering how much of a hassle they would probably be at an event like WWDC, where a ton of people are walking around, carrying around a selfie stick just doesn’t seem all that great of a plan.
Apple is also blocking any “wearable recording devices,” which is probably meant to focus on devices like Google’s Glass, the wearable head unit that also boasts a camera.
This year’s WWDC is, according to Apple, the “epicenter of change,” so it will certainly be interesting to see what Apple has in store.[via AppleInsider]
