WWDC 2020 The upside to an online-only WWDC 2020 is that Apple is making its big keynote more accessible than ever this year. No matter where you are or what device you’re using, you should be able to tune in live.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. Pacific today. Here are your options for watching the stream. (Update: If you missed the WWDC keynote, or simply want to watch it again, you can see it in the YouTube embed below.)

WWDC is one of the biggest events in the Apple calendar, second only to the iPhone keynote we typically see every fall. It’s jam-packed full of exciting announcements no Apple fan will want to miss.

This year, we’re expecting our very first glimpse at iOS 14, watchOS 7, the next major update to macOS, and lots more. We may even get confirmation of Apple’s switch from Intel to ARM CPUs for the Mac.

You certainly don’t want to miss the WWDC 2020 keynote. Here’s how you can watch online.

Watch WWDC 2020 on TV

If you plan to enjoy WWDC on the big screen, you have a couple of options. Apple TV users can use the Apple Events app, while everyone else can tune into the live stream on YouTube.

Watch WWDC 2020 on Mac or PC

If you’re watching at your desk, you can use the brand-new Apple Developer app on macOS. This is a particularly great option for developers since in addition to the keynote and other events, it offers useful resources, including the ability to download sample code.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, there is no Developer app for Windows. PC users (and those who don’t want to use the Developer app on Mac) can watch the keynote on the Apple website, or on YouTube.

Watch WWDC 2020 on iOS or Android

There’s also an Apple Developer app for iOS that’s just as useful as the macOS version. Alternatively, iPhone and iPad users can enjoy the keynote on the Apple website using Safari, or on YouTube.

Apple has added Chrome to its list of supported browsers, so Android users should have the same options (except for the Developer app). But we recommend using YouTube on Android to avoid any browsers issues.

For your convenience, we’ve embedded Apple’s YouTube live stream below so that you can watch the keynote right here if you wish.

Other ways to enjoy the keynote

If you’re unable to watch the WWDC keynote live — maybe because you’ll be stuck at work — there are other ways to keep up with what’s going on. Cult of Mac will be covering all the news as it breaks, while following the #WWDC20 tag on Twitter is another good option.

It’s also worth noting that the keynote itself will be available on-demand on the Apple website and on YouTube when it’s all over, so you can catch up (or enjoy it all over again) at a time to suit you.
