Apple has worked things down to a routine, so fans expect certain things every year. New iPhones, worthwhile updates to operating systems, and a live stream of its Worldwide Developers Conference keynote.
And it looks like the company will be holding fast with that last expectation. The company has recently updated its official website to confirm what we all expected would happen: The company will be live streaming its keynote speech on Monday, June 4. The announcements will start at 10:00 AM PT, local time. This comes on the heels of Apple sending out press invites for the June 4 event.
Here is the fine print, which relates to how you can actually watch the live stream, if you are so inclined to do so:
“This stream is best experienced on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari on iOS 10 or later; a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later; or a PC using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. Streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS. Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required).”
As is par for the course, the keynote is designed to check the boxes of major announcements. This year won’t be any different, with expectations that we should see iOS 12, as well as updates to macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The keynote serves as a consumer-friendly version of the developer-focused event, which will last the week of June 4.
It is going to be fun to see what Apple has to show us this year. Will we see a company that’s going to play it cool and just showcase a small amount of new features as it puts the majority of its focus on performance for its platforms? Or will we see a whole host of new features and more? We don’t have long to wait to find out.
