One of Apple’s biggest events is right around the corner. This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote promises to deliver our first look at the company’s next-generation software updates for iPhone, iPad, Mac and more. And it’s all happening on June 6.

Just like past WWDC keynotes, this year’s will be streaming online, so you’ll be able to watch it in its entirety as it all unfolds. Here’s how.

Update: The WWDC22 keynote is behind us, but if you want to get caught up you can watch the whole presentation on YouTube. Or check Cult of Mac‘s in-depth coverage.

Changes coming to iOS, macOS and more

Expect CEO Tim Cook and other executives to take the wraps off iOS 16, macOS 13, iPadOS 16 and watchOS 9 on the first day of WWDC22. A few details leaked out early. iPhones will supposedly have more functional lock screens, the Mac System Preferences are getting reorganized, Apple Watch will be healthier, and iPad could offer floating app windows.

Shiny new software updates aren’t the only thing we’re expecting from WWDC22. Recent rumors have suggested we could also see some new hardware — Apple might show off its long-rumored AR/VR headset.

We’re also hoping to see a redesigned MacBook Air.

If you’re an Apple fan, this is one event you definitely don’t want to miss. And you don’t have to!

There’s more to WWDC

Apple’s keynote is just one part of WWDC. There’s also the company’s State of the Union, which takes place at 2 p.m. PDT on June 6, and over 200 in-depth sessions for app developers that will be available online.

There are also online video Sessions that will be released each day of the conference. Apple promises these will let developers “learn about our latest updates to help you create the most innovative apps and games in the world.”

And there are Digital Lounges hosted by Apple engineers and designers. These offer text-based Q&As, session watch parties with the presenters and more. Be sure to register.

Online Labs offer one-on-one guidance from Apple engineers, designers and other experts. You have to request one, though.

Of course, Cult of Mac will be covering all the big news coming out of WWDC22. Visit us on June 6 to see what’s happening in the next twelve months with iPhone, Mac, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV.
