So you are a selfie addict ? And such an addict that you actually use one of those selfie sticks ? Well if that is the case, WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference is probably not the place for you to be. You ask Why ? Because Apple has banned the use of selfie sticks or monopods along with a lot of other recording equipments from WWDC 2015.

The new updation to WWDC Rules and regulations on Apple’s Information Page says,

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.

Selfie Sticks’ popularity isn’t unknown to us. The sticks have seen a surge in popularity and multitude of photographers too, have been using or promoting these sticks.

Earlier today, Apple announced that its annual World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) will take place from June 8th to June 12th June. the conference has quite aptly been titled as “The Epicenter of change”, highlighting Apple’s continuing innovation on both the hardware, as well as software front.

The Cupertino giant is expected to unveil newer version of both its mobile as well as desktop OS, the iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 respectively.

Appel might also start releasing developer previews of both, to help developer’s get familiar with the new environment and update their apps accordingly.
