Apple has just announced that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will be available to stream online this year (or at least the keynote address). Apple has a history of streaming some major events and leaving us in the dark of others, so this is good news for those who want to see what Apple has in store for the next year right as it happens.
The keynote will stream at 10am PDT on June 2nd. The conference itself will run through June 6th. Bookmark this page for the livestream. Do note, however that you’ll need Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; or Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. If you want to stream it on your Apple TV, you’ll need second or third-gen running 5.0.2 or later.
“We have the most amazing developer community in the world and have a great week planned for them,” says Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Every year the WWDC audience becomes more diverse, with developers from almost every discipline you can imagine and coming from every corner of the globe. We look forward to sharing with them our latest advances in iOS and OS X so they can create the next generation of great apps.”
We’re likely to see the new iOS 8 and new version of OS X next week as Apple’s top brass take the stage at Moscone West in San Francisco. Recent rumors have sprouted, saying that Apple could unveil a new home automation system. MacRumors says we’ll likely get some additional hardware announcements, but we’re not likely to see a new iWatch or Apple TV model.
