We’ve already taken a close look at what you can expect from WWDC, and now it’s time too see what Tim Cook and his band of marauders actually announce.


If you’re one of the many unfortunate souls who isn’t in San Jose for the conference, you can watch the live stream right here. Don’t bother using Chrome or Firefox to watch, though, because they won’t work. In Apple’s words, here’s what you need :

Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).


The keynote presentation is scheduled for 10am PT/ 1pm ET, and although Apple will be hosting developer-oriented events all week, all of the big announcements will be made during the first keynote. We’ll be live-blogging the event as news is announced and will also have reporters on the ground at the event all week, so be sure to check back for the latest news.

I have a feeling most people using Chrome don’t really give a shit to watch it anyway.
