How to watch Apple’s WWDC 2022 keynote
Apple is expected to unveil new operating systems – and maybe some groundbreaking hardware – at its WorldWide Developer Conference keynote.
As it does every year, Apple will kick off its developer-centric conference WWDC with a keynote address where it's expected to unveil the latest iterations of macOS, iOS, iPadOS, WatchOS, tvOS and more.
It's also very likely that it will use the event to show off a selection of new Apple gear, although in typical fashion, it's keeping very tight-lipped about what that hardware might be. (https://www.finder.com.au/apple-vr-headset-rumours-2022)
When is the WWDC 2022 keynote?
Apple's official line for the WWDC 2022 keynote is that it takes place at 10am PDT on 6 June 2022.
Which is great and all if you happen be in the US Pacific Time Zone. Chances are that if you're reading this, you're not.
For Australian Apple fans, here's how that timing pans out for all current time zones.
|AEST||3am 7 June 2022|
|ACST||2:30am 7 June 2022|
|AWST||1am 7 June 2022|
Basically, if you're in Western Australia you should stock up on coffee (https://www.finder.com.au/coffee-machines) and stay up, while the further East you go… the more coffee you're going to need(https://www.finder.com.au/bean-vs-capsule-coffee-machine-2022), because you're facing a very early start that day!
Of course we'll be bringing you all the details on the WWDC 2022 announcements that morning if you don't fancy that early start.
However, if you do want to get up early – or if you don't sleep, and I won't judge you for that – then you can watch the entire WWDC 2022 keynote live.
Well, as live as a pre-recorded keynote gets, anyway.
How can I watch the WWDC 2022 keynote?
For a very small select few, the answer to that question will be "rock up to the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's Cupertino campus" to be let in.
That's a very small and select list of journalists and influencers, however… and as it turns out, they'll be watching a video that you can pick up from anywhere on the planet.
As usual, Apple will be flinging the keynote out over most of its devices. It will stream on Apple TV set top boxes (https://www.finder.com.au/apple-tv-4k-2021-review), via the Apple TV app (https://www.finder.com.au/internet-tv/apple-tv-plus) and via its own websites.
If you're a Mac user then Safari should be your go-to platform in that respect; on the PC side Apple usually suggests using Microsoft's Edge browser, with mixed results typically seen for those on Chrome or Firefox.
However, there's a much easier way...
WWDC live stream
Apple will also broadcast the keynote on its YouTube channel.
As you're probably aware, YouTube is available on just about everything this side of an Amiga 500, and even then somebody's probably hacked it into working there. You can catch every minute of the WWDC 2022 keynote in the player below:
