How to watch Apple’s WWDC20 keynote
We’re now just two days away from the opening keynote of WWDC20, which is expected to be quite different this year, given that it’s the first completely online version of the event. Fortunately, there are many ways to watch the event from the comfort of your home, on a variety of devices and operating systems.
The official Developer app by Apple should definitely be installed on your iPhone, iPad or Mac by now. It’s the place to go to watch both the keynote, as well as the Platforms State of the Union, and all other sessions. Just visit the App Store and install the app. When the keynote is live, it will show up within the WWDC tab.
Another really cool feature that’s been added to this year’s version is the ability to copy code snippets shown during sessions, so that you can quickly try the new APIs out for yourself, or even integrate them directly into your projects.
With the latest update to their Apple Events app, Apple has officially deprecated it in favor of the TV app, which is available on the Apple TV, iOS, and the Mac.
A very welcome change that this migration brought with it is the addition of 4K versions of the videos from the last two major Apple events — the September 2019 event and the WWDC 2019 keynote. This makes me wonder if Apple plans to stream this year’s keynote in 4K (I would certainly love that).
As usual, Apple is also providing a special page on their website where you can watch the keynote. Just open your favorite browser and go to this link at the time of the event. The keynote and other sessions are also streamed on the WWDC website as well.
Apple’s website recommends streaming on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 10 or later, a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later, or a PC using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Google Chrome or Firefox.
If none of the options above suit you, then you can also watch Apple’s official keynote live stream on YouTube. This is also a great option if you have a Chromecast compatible device plugged into your TV.
So that’s how you can watch the WWDC20 keynote on Monday. As you can see, there are quite a few options available, so choose the one that works best for you, make some popcorn, and enjoy the show!
