WWDC 2018 starts on Monday, June 4, and as with previous years, Apple is kicking off the conference with a keynote on the first day, offering a look at some upcoming products and providing the first details on new operating systems.

Rumors have suggested we could potentially see new iPad Pro models and perhaps a new iPhone SE, and several Macs are due for a refresh, including the MacBook Pro, iMac, and 12-inch MacBook. We're also expecting a first-look at next-generation versions of macOS, iOS, and tvOS.

Watch the Keynote on Mac, iPhone or iPad

You can watch the WWDC keynote live on any Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Apple's native Safari browser. Bear in mind, to meet the stream's requirements, iOS devices must be running iOS 10 or later, while Macs need to be running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later.

safari mac wwdc18
Launch Safari from your chosen device and follow this link to the WWDC18 Livestream.

Watch the Keynote on Apple TV

You can watch the WWDC keynote live on an Apple TV. Fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV owners will need to download the Apple Events app from the tvOS App Store (see the steps below). Owners of earlier generation devices should see the Apple Events button automatically appear in their Home screen menu. (Second-generation Apple TV or later can also AirPlay the stream from another Apple device running Safari, as described above.)

  1. Open the App Store from the Home screen.

  2. Scroll down to the News category and select Apple Events. Alternatively, input "Apple Events" into the Search field and select it from the results.

  3. Click the Get button to download the app.

  4. Wait for the button to change to Open, and click it again. Alternatively, select the Apple Events app on your Home screen.

The app will tell you to tune in at your local time on June 4 to watch the event live (18:00 BST in our example), so clicking on the WWDC18 keynote button won't do much until then. Meantime, you do have the option to watch the previous three Apple Events while you wait, including last year's WWDC keynote.

Watch the Keynote on a Windows PC

If you don't have an Apple device handy, you can still watch the WWDC18 keynote on a PC running Windows 10. Open Microsoft Edge browser and follow this link to the WWDC18 Livestream.

While Apple offers no guarantees, other platforms may also be able to access the WWDC18 livestream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC codecs/extensions must be installed).

Also handy to have a pillow in front of you so when you doze off you don't hit your head on the desk. Seriously, can't remember the last interesting one -- maybe if you are a developer, it will start the creative wheels turning, but as a tech observer and Apple consumer, I've stopped wasting my time. I'm better off reading the highlights and then someone puts together a "Keynote in 5 min" video sans all the "Apple has sold more watches than the sum of all watches since pre-history" blah, blah, and the tedious Phil Schiller and 3rd party mono-tone demos.

For me, it's that first 5-10 minute of Tim monologuing about how 'inspirational' technology is and how important it is in the world. I can't usually make it through that part before turning off and waiting till it's over to watch a catch up video.
