Apple’s WWDC 2017 keynote kicks off on Monday at 10:00 am PDT where it is widely expected to unveil iOS 11, the hotly anticipated next generation mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, macOS 10.13, the next major update for Macs, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11.
There have also been rumors that Apple may launch new products such as the Siri Speaker, to take on Amazon Echo and Google Home, and updated MacBooks. However, based on the massive leak from yesterday, we have some doubts about the hardware announcements.
The good news is that Apple has announced that it will be live streaming the event, so you can watch the WWDC 2017 Keynote on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows or Android device. If you need help, then you can follow the instructions below.
How to Watch WWDC 2017 Keynote Live Stream
Apple TV 4
If you have the new Apple TV 4 then download the Apple Events app from the tvOS App Store for free if you haven’t done so already.
Apple TV 3 and Apple TV 2
If you have Apple TV 3 or Apple TV 2 with Apple TV software 5.0.2 or later, then navigate to “Apple Events” channel with the WWDC 17 logo (like the one above) on the main menu to watch the event live on your television.
If plan to watch it on your Mac, then launch Safari browser and point it to the following URL: https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2017/
iPad, iPhone or iPod touch
If you plan to watch it on your iPhone or iPad, then point mobile Safari to the same URL – https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2017/
Windows users can also live stream the event on their PC officially. But there’s a limitation. You can only do it if only on the Microsoft Edge browser which comes with Windows 10.
