How To Watch Apple's WWDC 2018 Keynote

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference, also known as WWDC, officially kicks off on Tuesday. As the name suggests, the annual conference is centred around the developers that are making apps and services for things such as your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac.

That means while we're not likely to hear a ton of new hardware announcements at this event (Apple holds events later in the year for things such as iPhones), we are likely to hear a lot about the next version iOS, watchOS, tvOS and macOS - and there might be a new Mac or iPad Pro to show off as well.

While WWDC is a multi-day event, all of the "big" announcements will happen during the event's keynote on Tuesday June 5 at 3AM AEST (1AM AWST). If your invitation to this year's conference got lost in the mail, there are still a few ways to watch all the action:

Stream From the WWDC Page

Apple will be offering a livestream of all the WWDC action on its official WWDC page, but there's a catch: You need to be on an Apple device to view it. The livestream can be viewed using Safari (and only Safari) on an iPhone, iPad or Mac. If you typically use another browser such as Chrome or Firefox, you'll need to dust off Safari for the occasion.

Apple TV

If you happen to be at home or near an Apple TV, the keynote will also be available via the Apple TV though the Events app. If you launch that bad boy up around 3AM AEST (1AM AWST) you should see the keynote as a streaming option.
