How-To: Watch Apple’s WWDC Keynote

Apple is set to hold their big WWDC 2016 keynote live today at 10AM PT/ 1PM ET. The company holds these events each year over a period of 5 days to update developers on upcoming changes being made to software such as iOS, OS X, and watchOS. This year, we’re expecting to hear all about iOS 10, OS X (MacOS?) 10.12, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10 alongside some exciting new features in Siri and messaging. Apple Pay is reportedly also getting upgraded with some new features and techniques, while Apple Music is will receive some needed design changes and experience enhancements. However, we’ll most likely have to wait a little while to hear about the rumored new MacBook Pros and Airs rather today during the event.

If you want to tune in to the keynote today, here’s how you can do so:


Apple’s website

Apple always live stream’s their events (whether it’s the latest iPhone unveiling or developer conference) on their website, so that should be the first place you go to watch.

To see the stream, you must be on a) an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari and iOS 7. or later, b) Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X 10.8.5 or later, or c) Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Click here to watch.


Apple TV

The Apple TV has always been able to stream Apple’s live keynotes, and it’s probably the best way to do it since you can have such a big display to watch it on.

To watch on your Apple TV, you must be running software 6.2 on your second or third generation models, while you can just watch it on your fourth generation model via the WWDC app (more on that below) without having to check your software.


WWDC app

Apple recently updated their WWDC app for 2016 with a new dark theme and available previously live streamed events. The new schedule for this year is also accessible via the app and makes seeing when different keynotes are being held when much simpler and quicker.

You can download the WWDC app to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 9.3 or later for free. The app is also available on the Apple TV via the App Store and is required to watch today’s event.


If you’re on an older or simply can’t watch this event due to limitations set by your device, never fear. I’ll be tweeting out frequent updates while WWDC is being held so you can stay up to date. Follow me @MaximumInc12 on Twitter and turn on tweet notifications so you don’t miss a thing!
