Apple will livestream WWDC keynote to Macs and iOS devices



We’re less than a week away from WWDC and while Apple’s official app is slim on clues for the event, the company just revealed it will stream its entire keynote to Macs and iPhones so you can learn about all the new goodies, even if you didn’t get a golden ticket.

Starting at 10am PDT on June 2nd, Tim Cook and other top Apple execs will take the stage at Moscone West to reveal the next version of iOS and OS X to the 5,000 developers descending on San Francisco for hands on training with Apple’s top software engineers.

This year’s keynote is expected to include a peek at iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 as well as Apple’s new home automation platform that would centralize control of various smart devices in your home though a common API in iOS 8. New hardware is also expected to appear at the event, possibly in the form of new iMacs, a 12-inch Retina MacBook Air, or even the long rumored iWatch.

Along with the livestream of the keynote, developers who weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket to attend the event will be able to watch video of the WWDC sessions days after the event through the iOS and Mac dev centers.

Apple fans can tune into the keynote using a Mac running Safari 4 or later, or any iOS device on iOS 4.2. You can also catch the event on your Apple TV with the dedicated WWDC channel that will appear on June 2nd.
