Despite recent rumors, it is unlikely that Apple will debut its next iPhone device on June 2 at the Worldwide Developer's Conference.

Apple confirmed last week in a press release that this year's tech event will be held from June 2 to 6 at Moscone West in San Francisco.

Tickets will be issued in a lottery for the first time ever for the event.

Those who are hoping to attend the WWDC had until 10 a.m. today to register.

"We have the most amazing developer community in the world and have a great week planned for them. Every year the WWDC audience becomes more diverse, with developers from almost every discipline you can imagine and coming from every corner of the globe. We look forward to sharing with them our latest advances in iOS and OS X so they can create the next generation of great apps," Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller said, according to a company release.

The lucky few who are selected will have the chance to purchase a WWDC ticket for $1,599. The purchase must be completed no later than April 14, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. PDT.

Over 1,000 engineers will be at the conference to run hands-on labs and other events to help attendees learn more about iOS and OS x.

Apple has not announced the official launch of its next iPhone, which is expected to be called the iPhone 6, but its debut will most likely not take place at the annual tech event.

Many media outlets have speculated that two different iPhone variants will debut at some point this year. The iPhones are expected to come with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, both of which would be much bigger than the current iPhone devices.

Both devices will likely be faster and provide better processors, along with a fingerprint sensor and a new operating system.

Apple fans should look forward to the debut of Apple's next operating system, expected to be called iOS 8, at the 2014 WWDC event.
