Apple gets ready for WWDC (photos)
Apple gets the Moscone West building in San Francisco ready for next week's annual developer conference.
- The many individual pieces that make up the enormous Apple logo on the sides of Moscone West are hauled up in trash cans.
- The Moscone West building in downtown San Francisco begins its transformation into ground zero for Apple's annual developer conference. Here workers near completion on two giant Apple logos in tandem.
- Ropes and a cage await a trip up the side of the building to attach the rest of the large Apple logo.
- Each Apple logo is made up of 39 panels, and goes up on each side of Moscone.
- Workers set up the registration desk and zip around the inside of the building on bucket lifts.
- Boxes stack up in front of Apple's giant banner that says "Write the code. Change the world." Last year's tagline was "Where a whole new world is developing."
- Across the street, Apple's put up five square signs identical to the one inside the building.
- The signs say WWDC14 for 2014, but it's actually the 25th developers conference Apple's put on.
- A first peek at iOS 8, or at least an indication that it's coming.
- A better look at the 8 banner, which is both above and under water.
- Up on the second floor, Apple's got covered banners for things it will likely announce at the show.
- Apple begins putting up a banner for the next OS X, which looks like Yosemite national park in California.
