How to watch the Apple WWDC 2016 keynote live stream

Apple is expected to announce major software updates at its developer conference keynote. Here’s how you can catch all the action.

The rumour mill strongly suggests that we’ll see upgrades announced for iOS, Mac OS X (possibly soon to just be named Mac OS), tvOS and WatchOS as part of Apple’s WWDC 2016 keynote. The more wildly optimistic rumours are talking up everything from new Apple Watch models to the iPhone 7, but that's largely wishful thinking at this stage.

Conference tickets sold out rapidly when they went on sale to developers back in April, but you don’t even have to be in California to watch the announcements as they happen.

Apple will livestream the WWDC keynote over the Internet for anyone keen to watch. The keynote itself takes place at 10am on 13 June 2016, but that’s US Pacific Time. In Australia, that equates to 3am on 14 June 2016 for AEST; 2:30am in South Australia, Broken Hill and the Northern Territory; and 1am in Western Australia.

How can I watch the WWDC 2016 keynote?

If you’re watching from a desktop, laptop, tablet or iOS device, Apple will provide a live stream from its dedicated WWDC web site, which you can find here. Sorry, Android fans; Apple's stream specifies iOS as its supported mobile platform, which is hardly surprising.

If you want to watch on a larger screen and you’ve got an Apple TV set top box, Apple will provide a stream to the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TV via the Events app. Apple has a dedicated WWDC app for the 4th generation Apple TV through which it will make a stream of the keynote available.
