US technology giant Apple Inc has banned selfie sticks from its next Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in a bid to offer better viewing experience to members of the audience.
In a statement released on its website, the company said: "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."
Apple will host the 26th edition of the conference from June 8-12 this year.
The tech major is known to unveil the latest versions of iOS, Mac OS and iOS devices during WWDC. This year's conference features more than 100 technical sessions, over 1,000 Apple engineers, hands-on labs, and the Apple Design Awards.
Select sessions of the WWDC will be streamed live via web and the WWDC app.
