Apple has set the dates for its next developers conference and has added a curious new rule for those attending: No selfie sticks. (Tweet this)
The tech giant said Tuesday that its Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off June 8 and will once again be hosted at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
In the event's general information section on Apple's website, the company states that those in attendance "may not use selfie sticks or similar monopods within Moscone West or Yerba Buena Gardens."
Anyone caught using such devices will be removed from WWDC, the company said.
Apple is expected to reveal its next version of iOS and OS X at the event, but it may also unveil some new hardware.
The company recently slashed the price of its Apple TV from $99 to $69, possibly suggesting a new model of the TV streaming box is on its way.
The theme this year is "The epicenter of change" and the event will run until June 12.
Because of the high demand for tickets to the WWDC, the company is once again using a lottery system to distribute tickets instead of going on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Apple's not alone in its quest to abolish selfie sticks. The devices have also been banned at other events and places including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Colosseum in Rome and most recently the Coachella music festival.
