WWDC23 is coming – how to watch Monday’s big keynote

Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) kicks off this coming Monday, June 5.

Although some in-person events are planned – like the rumored Reality Pro trials – all the big announcements, presentations, and developer sessions will be streamed live around the world, meaning almost anyone can tune in.

In particular, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for WWDC’s opening keynote speech, in which Apple shows off upcoming software updates ahead of their September launch. That means a first look at iOS 17, plus the latest iterations of iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

From time to time, we see hardware announcements at WWDC too, with Apple widely expected to unveil its long-awaited mixed-reality headset at the keynote – along with some slightly less exciting stuff like new Macs.

Whatever the case, there’s going to be plenty to sink our collective teeth into on Monday. Like Apple’s yearly iPhone reveals in September, the opening video is a good watch even if you’re not an app developer. And just a few hours later, Apple will reveal the winners of this year’s Design Awards. Exciting!

How to watch

If you want to follow along live, you’ll need to tune into Apple’s WWDC stream at 10 am PDT on June 5. (That’s 6 pm BST for you Brits out there.)

You’ll be able to find the stream on Apple’s website, its YouTube channel, or through the Apple TV app. Choose whichever method works best for you.

If you miss the stream, it’ll be available to watch in full later that day. But you’ll miss the hype of a live product announcement. Equally, if two-hour tech presentations aren’t your thing (no matter how flashy Apple makes them), rest assured we’ll be posting all the details to our news feed immediately after the keynote. Stay tuned!
