Apple on Monday confirmed that CEO Steve Jobs will deliver the opening keynote address at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month.


Jobs' keynote will kick off this year's conference on Monday, June 7, at 10 a.m. PDT. Typically, the event is held in Moscone West in San Francisco, the same place Apple holds the developer conference.

It's widely expected that Jobs will talk about iPhone OS 4, the new mobile operating system unveiled in April, and perhaps give some details on the next-generation iPhone 4G. Last year Jobs was out on medical leave and was unable to give the WWDC address.

WWDC 2010 sold out eight days after tickets went on sale this year, even though the event was announced later than usual. Apple expects around 5,000 developers to attend the conference.

Sessions for this year's conference include Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS.
