Apple’s worldwide developer conference, or WWDC for short, is back again and the company is preparing to share what it has been working on for the past few months. We expect to get our first glimpse at iOS 11 and macOS 10.13, although recent reports suggest we could also see some new hardware. See also: iPhone 8 news.
While it sounds exciting, you will not know that you can tune in and watch Apple’s WWDC 2017 announcement live – here’s where we show you how.
When will the WWDC 2017 presentation begin?
First and foremost, when does Apple’s WWDC-based presentation begin? As announced by Apple, the WWDC 2017 keynote is due to begin at 6pm on Monday 5 June 2017 for those of us in the UK, while US residents will have to get up a little earlier (it starts at 10am PT).
Of course, Apple will be hosting developer-focused events for the entire week, but the keynote is where all the important announcements are made.
How can I watch WWDC 2017 live?
Once upon a time it was fairly difficult to watch Apple’s keynote live streams without having access to an Apple device, but this is no longer the case. Those interested in watching Apple’s software (and probably hardware) announcement can do so from the comfort of their own homes via not only iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple TVs but PCs too.
Along with the live video stream, we’ll be live blogging the entire event, giving you our professional opinion on everything Apple announces.
iPhone, iPad and Mac
Those wanting to watch the WWDC 2017 keynote from an iPhone, iPad or Mac need to head to the WWDC 2017 keynote page using Safari. It’s worth noting that iPhone and iPad users need to be running at least iOS 7, and Mac users need to be running Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later.
Those who want to watch the live stream via an Apple TV can do so via the Apple Events app that should appear on the home screen shortly before the keynote begins.
Those wanting to watch the keynote from a PC must be running Windows 10 as the Apple live stream site only supports Microsoft’s reborn internet browser, Edge. If you have got Windows 10 and are using the Edge browser, simply head to the WWDC 2017 keynote page to watch.
