WWDC kicks off today! How to watch Apple’s big presentation

Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) starts today, and with it comes plenty of announcements – including a first look at the upcoming iOS 13.

The conference lasts a week, but most of that time consists of workshops for app developers – all the important stuff the public is likely to care about is revealed at the opening keynote speech.

This year, that speech falls on June 3 in San Jose, and Apple is live-streaming the opening around the world at 10am PDT. That equates to 1pm on the east coast and 6pm in the UK – at the time of writing that’s just a few short hours away.

How to follow along

The event will be streamed live on Apple’s website, and if you want to see all the announcements in their full glory there’s no better way than watching the entire thing online.

You can watch on an iPhone or iPad via or go to that same web address on your computer. The stream is only compatible with Safari, though, so if you usually use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox you’ll need to make a change. Similarly, those with Windows PCs can access the stream but only using the Microsoft Edge browser.

If you have an Apple TV, it’s even easier – just search for the Apple Events app in the App Store. It’s a free download and will take you straight into the stream as soon as it’s live.

Whichever method you choose, the full event is likely to last around two hours and will show off all manner of software features. Apple sometimes uses its time at WWDC to unveil new hardware, too, so we could be in for more than just iOS announcements.

If watching a two-hour tech presentation isn’t your idea of a good time – or if you’re too busy to tune in live – rest assured we’ll be busy reporting on everything you need to know. We’ll have a full recap after the event today and will delve into iOS 13 in more detail throughout the week, so stick around for all the juicy Apple news you can handle!
