Guess what? Apple has confirmed via a banner on its official website that WWDC Keynote will be streamed live. Considering the tech giant did not offer live streaming of its education event in Chicago back in March, this is an excellent news for Apple enthusiasts.
A live video stream will be available live from 10 AM Pacific Time on June 4. At the event, Apple CEO Tim Cook will unveil next generation software platforms, namely the new iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12. He may also talk about hardware improvements especially those related to HomePod.
Before September 2017, viewers could only watch the keynote stream through Safari or Microsoft Edge. Now, the stream will be virtually available on all devices as the official event page states:
“This stream is best experienced on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari on iOS 10 or later; a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later; or a PC using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. Streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS. Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required).”
This might hint towards a software update in the Apple Events app in the coming week or so, which should allow you to watch the show from the comfort of your Apple TV.
Apple has already mailed its invites for press coverage and you can expect a detailed coverage of WWDC events from our staff members.
