Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, WWDC for short, is the company’s biggest software-focused event, although it’s often full of hardware announcements too. Tickets for the crowded event are normally $1,599 apiece, but in the wake of coronavirus canceling just about every major physical gathering, Apple is making the event free for virtual attendees. Here’s how you can tune in.
Of course, the biggest part of WWDC is the keynote address, where Apple announces new features and products to a crowd of cheering developers and reporters. This year’s event is sure to be a little quieter when it kicks off on Monday, June 22 at 10 AM PST.

You can watch the WWDC keynote on any Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Apple’s native Safari browser. Bear in mind, to meet the stream’s requirements, iOS devices must be running iOS 10 or later, while Macs need to be running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later.
