FORTUNE — Apple’s (AAPL) annual World Wide Developers Conference is scheduled to begin with a Tim Cook keynote June 11, but for Mark Gurman the story began in early May.

In a series of scoops — the accuracy of which is about to be tested — 9to5Mac‘s star 18-year-old blogger (with assists from Seth Weintraub and Jordan Kahn) has been leading the growing pack of Apple-obsessed tech journalists.

Either Gurman has unusually good sources, or his journalistic bar is set unusually low. We’ll find out which soon enough.

Meanwhile here, in reverse order, are a month’s worth of 9to5Mac’s WWDC headlines:
