Apple WWDC 2019: When & How to Watch the Keynote

Come June, Apple will hold its 30th annual Worldwide Developers Conference where the company will likely unveil the next version of its mobile software iOS 13. The annual conference will be held in San Jose at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. The conference kicks off on June 3 with the WWDC Keynote Event, which will live stream on Apple’s website and the WWDC app for Apple TV, iPad, and iPhone. Along with its September iPhone announcement, the WWDC Keynote is one of the biggest Apple events of the year. We'll be offering commentary during the event in our Facebook group and in the special podcast episode we'll be recording right after. Here’s how you can watch Apple's WWDC keynote too.

If you’ve watched (or been to) WWDC in the past, you’re probably familiar with what to expect. Apple will show off previews for new operating systems. You can be sure we’ll get a sneak-peek at some of the coolest new features Apple plans to introduce in iOS 13, watchOS 6, tvOS 13, and MacOS 10.15. And maybe Apple will even share more details about Apple Arcade and Apple TV Plus, the subscription gaming and video streaming services that the company announced during its March 2019 event. It's possible Apple may even announce an updated Mac Pro.
