How to Watch Apple's WWDC Keynote This Evening

By Tom Pritchard on at

Today is the day Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference kicks off, with the keynote speech kicking things off at 6pm BST. Much like Google I/O, this conference will showcase what Apple has planned for its software products over the course of the next 12 months, so we can expect to hear about plenty of updates to iOS 11, MacOS, and what's coming for iOS 12. Word is we may also see some new hardware, including some sort of iPhone.

As ever, the keynote will be livestreamed over the interwebs, so people at home can tune in and hear what Tim Cook had to say. He's got a lot to live up to, especially if he wants to trump last week's press conference that saw a Russian journalist brought back to life in the Ukraine.

The stream can be access on the Apple website, through the usual channels. That means you can definitely tune in from Safari on an Apple device, or Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. The interesting thing about this particular livestream is hat Chrome and Firefox users may be able to tune in. The small print says "Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required)".

So it's not guaranteed, but it's worth trying if you don't want to load up Apple and Microsoft's respective stock browsers. Fortunately the stream does start before the good stuff begins, so you have plenty of time to switch if Apple is screwing with us and neither browser actually works.

So if you want to watch from home, you've potentially got more ways than ever before. We'll be bringing you all the news as and when it happens, though, so if you'd rather spend your evening doing something more productive you can just check back and read about what happened.
