Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference gets underway later today, and you can watch it from the comfort of your home.
Apple is expected to unveil iOS 9, OS X 10.11 and native third-party app support for the Apple Watch. It is likely to announce a streaming music service based on Beats Music. And it will detail its plans for expanding the reach of Apple Pay.
It was previously thought that Apple would unveil an upgraded Apple TV set-top box as well as a streaming television subscription service, but these seem to have been postponed.
The conference gets underway at 6pm GMT. Here’s how you can watch the keynote.
How to watch WWDC on an Apple device:
You can watch the live stream on Apple’s website, provided you use a Safari browser on OS X 10.8.5 or later and Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Owners of the second- or third-generation Apple TV can watch the stream through the “Apple Special Events” app.
How to watch WWDC on a PC:
You will need to download and use the open-source VLC Player. Once installed, launch the app, go to media and click on "open network stream." Then you just have to paste “http://p.events-delivery.apple.com.edgesuite.net/15pijbnaefvpoijbaefvpihb06/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8” into the field marked “Please enter a network URL.”
The stream link will appear broken until closer to the start of the keynote. You should be aware that watching the stream this way isn’t officially supported by Apple and may not work reliably.
