As we are here to witness what Apple will be announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year, kicks off into gear on June 4th. Apple has confirmed that, just as has become the norm, it will stream the opening WWDC 2018 keynote for all to see.
We have a fair play with the Apple’s announcement at WWDC, it will entail iOS 12 and an update to macOS, among some other things. We will also learn about what Apple will choose for its next macOS name, but without doubt, iOS is where all the attention will be.
If you’re wanting to watch it live, and you probably should be, then there are a few different easy options available to you. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?
Users of both iOS and Mac will be going to need to do is head on over to apple.com/live. From here, you’ll be able to stream it right from within Safari. What’s important is that you will require at least a Mac running Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X 10.8.5 or later; and on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. That very likely covers everyone reading this, but it’s still important to note.
Here’s the best way to watch any keynote on your nice big TV screen. The below applies to 2nd and 3rd-generation TV sets. For the 4th-and-5th-generation Apple TV, simply download the Apple Events app.
Step 1: Make sure your TV is up to date, If it isn’t, head to Settings > General > Software Updates section and select Update Software.
Step 2: Once your TV is updated, just wait a little while on the main screen for the new Apple Events app with WWDC logo to automatically install. It’ll be there before the big event starts.
On Android-powered devices, you’ll need to download the media player for Android and then it should be installed already.
Step 1: Download VLC for Android (recommended) from the Play Store if you don’t have it installed already.
Step 2: Launch the app, open the hamburger menu and select Stream.
Step 3: Paste this link provided all ready to begin streaming WWDC live:https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/18oijbasfvuhbfsdvoijhbsdfvljkb6/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8.
For you who wanting to stream the event on Windows 10, Apple will allow Windows users to officially live stream using Microsoft Edge browser via apple.com/live. If you don’t happen to be on Windows 10, this is what you will need to do to get up and running with the live keynote:
Step 1: Download VLC for Windows from videolan.org.
Step 2: Launch VLC once downloaded and navigate to Media > Open Network Stream and switch to the Network tab.
Step 3: Paste this link and hit the Play button to start the live stream: https://p-events-delivery.akamaized.net/18oijbasfvuhbfsdvoijhbsdfvljkb6/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8.
That’s all there is to it and should cover the vast majority. Let’s hope this year’s streaming WWDC hotness doesn’t let us down!
Update: Apple now says that “Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required).”
