Apple will not be holding a physical in-person WWDC 2020 event this time around due to the ongoing pandemic. However, that was not exactly stopped the company from holding WWDC altogether. In fact, it will be hosting the biggest WWDC yet completely online. If you are looking to watch WWDC 2020 to catch Apple unveil iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and more, follow this guide to know how you can do so.
If rumors are anything to go by, this year’s WWDC will bring in some major changes for macOS, with Apple also announcing its plans on switching to Arm-based chips inside Macs in the future. Additionally, watchOS 7 and iPadOS 14 are likely going to be major upgrades, with the company focusing primarily on usability improvements with iOS 14 this year.
Since the event is being held virtually, Apple will be live streaming it across all major channels to ensure everyone is able to view it easily. This also includes YouTube which is perhaps the best possible place for one to catch the live stream as it will work across all platforms and devices. Knowing Apple, it is likely that the company will try and do something unique at this year’s WWDC to make the virtual event stand out.
