How to Watch WWDC 2015 on iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, and Windows

By Tom Pritchard on at

As you may have already been made aware of, today is the start of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The start of a tech conference always means there's a keynote with lots of announcements, so if you want to stay on top of things you'll want to watch the live stream. Here's how you can do that, no matter what device you're using.

The keynote starts at 6pm BST, and if you own an Apple device watching is nice simple. Just head to www.apple.com/live in Safari, and you're good to go. Of course, Apple being Apple, this excludes anyone who uses anything not running OS X or iOS. Luckily, there is a workaround.

Thanks to the intrepid people over at 9to5Mac, you can still watch the live stream if you happen to be using a device that runs Android or Windows. Here's how:

  1. Download VLC on your device.
  2. Launch VLC once VLC is installed.
  3. Head on over to the Media tab and click on Open Network Stream.
  4. In the URL field, copy this URL: http://p.events-delivery.apple.com.edgesuite.net/15pijbnaefvpoijbaefvpihb06/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8
  5. Then press play to start watching.

Just remember, the stream is going to look broken until the keynote actually starts streaming at 6pm.

But if you're not willing to sacrifice the majority of your evening watching Team Cook drone on about how many Apple Watches have been sold, you can always just come back to us to see what went down.
