Apple’s WWDC 2018 kicks off on June 4, Monday, where the company is expected to unveil iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5, and more. Just like last year, Apple is holding its yearly developer conference at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. Apart from some notable executives from Apple and its developer team, some coveted journalists and developers are going to be present for the event.
If you are disappointed that you will miss out on all the fun at WWDC 2018 and the announcement made by Apple during its opening keynote, worry not. This is because Apple will be live streaming the opening keynote along with many of its other developer sessions, just like it has done over the last few years.
How to Watch WWDC 2018 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. It is a great app that will allow you to watch the keynote live stream from the comfort of your couch.
