Apple also plans to offer the live stream through the Apple TV app and on YouTube, with the YouTube stream live as of this morning.

Apple says that those who use the Apple Developer app to watch the keynote can use the SharePlay feature to view it alongside friends, making it easy to chat about the various announcements.

Apple is now allowing eligible developers to sign up for WWDC activities, including chats with Apple engineers, designers, and other Apple experts. There are numerous Q&A sessions, icebreakers, and Meet the Presenter activities, which are hosted through Slack.

Some of the available Activity topics include Augmented Reality, Design, App Store, Health and Fitness, Developer Tools, Maps and Location, Privacy and Security, System Services, and more.

Apple is also offering Sessions and Labs, which will be available after the keynote event.

This year's WWDC keynote is expected to focus on Apple's AR/VR headset, which is rumored to be making its debut at the event. Apple's WWDC tagline is "Code new worlds," which appears to be an obvious hint about the new xrOS platform that will run on the headset.

I'm excited about the future of AR, don't get me wrong. But a $3000 pair of ski goggles with a hip mounted battery pack isn't it, lol

I do not want VR goggles, they aren’t for the masses, I want apple to focus on iOS instead, I’d like to see it revamped, I fear they have not, which fills me with dread.

I'm excited about the future of VR/AR, get me right. A $3K monitor of any size, anywhere I happen to be seems like a bargain vs. a 27" monitor at $2K that will likely be forever locked in one place.

Applications like NFL-ST VR, MLB VR, NBA VR, NHL VR, etc. that basically places us in the stands (or at the show or concert) seems like incredible service opportunities vs. paying $8K-$50K for best seats to a single game (show or concert).


"Think different" views can be half empty or half full. All you need is a different perspective.

Completely agree. Brother, can you spare $8K-$50K for each game so we can be courtside in person? ;)
