Apple is all set to host WWDC 2021 virtually from June 7 through June 11 this year. The company is expected to announce iOS 15, watchOS 8, iPadOS 15, and the next version of macOS and tvOS at the event. Since Apple will be live streaming the opening keynote of WWDC 2021, you’ll be able to watch it live from the comfort of your couch. Here’s how you can watch WWDC 2021 live.
Last year’s iOS 14 update was a big one, so Apple is unlikely to introduce iOS 15 with too many headlining features. Instead, the focus will probably be on iPadOS 15 this year, which should come with some major multitasking improvements. You can check out some confirmed iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 features based on leaks here.
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. Gone are the days when Apple forced one to use an Apple device to even view their live stream.

The opening keynote of WWDC 2021 will take place on June 7 at 10:00 a.m. PT, and it will be streamed directly from Apple Park. You can find the start time of the WWDC 2021 keynote in your time zone here.
