Apple Installs Metal Detectors to Beef up Security for WWDC 2016

Apple is apparently beefing up the security for WWDC 2016 by installing metal detectors at the entrance. The move comes just a day after the worst shooting on the US soil saw at least 50 people being shot dead in a gay club in Orlando. Several Apple executives have acknowledged the tragedy on Twitter.

This will be the first time that Apple will be installing metal detectors or take any serious security measure for its WWDC event. However, with an increase in the number of shooting incidents in the United States, it does make sense for Apple to take such security measures.

While key Apple executives like Tim Cook and Phil Schiller had tweeted their prayers to the Orlando killing, it is likely that Tim Cook will once again be offering his prayers to the victims at the opening keynote of WWDC 2016.

There is still a few hours to go for WWDC to start, but people have already started queuing up at the entrance of the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
Apple’s boss of environment policies and social initiatives, Lisa Jackson, said on Twitter: “End hatred. Stop violence. I pray for peace for brothers and sisters in Florida who are the latest mass victims of both in the US.”

It is a good move from Apple side to beef up its security especially in the upcoming days.
