WWDC 2019 is going to be packed with some major announcements from Apple. After focusing on performance and stability with iOS 12 last year, iOS 13 is expected to introduce a number of new features and enhancements. watchOS 6 is also expected to make the Apple Watch a more powerful standalone wearable. Just like last year, Apple is holding its yearly developer conference at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. The opening keynote is scheduled to start at 10:00 am local time on June 3.
Like every year, Apple is going to live stream the opening keynote from WWDC 2019. So, if you are bummed about not being present physically at the venue, worry not. You can watch the live stream from the comfort of your couch and enjoy all the action live.
