It should be another fun-filled Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year, with Apple expected to showcase a whole collection of new “Apple Intelligence” (AI) features in iOS 18 et al. during Monday’s keynote presentation.

Even though there won’t likely be any new hardware announcements, it’s a WWDC you won’t want to miss. AI aside, Apple will take the wraps off iOS 18, iPadOS 18, watchOS 11, and macOS 15 with a yet-to-be-revealed California landmark. It will undoubtedly also mark the Vision Pro’s debut anniversary with visionOS 2.0.

Apple’s WWDC Keynotes used to be a big deal for in-person attendees, with developers having to compete in a lottery for the opportunity to purchase an expensive ticket. However, the COVID-19 pandemic forced Apple to go entirely virtual in 2020, and that turned out to be good fortune for developers as the company realized it could continue that trend and open up the event to a virtually unlimited number of developers worldwide at no additional cost.

While a few lucky people will still be attending in person, it won’t be a big stage presentation like it was before COVID. Instead, they’ll simply gather at Apple Park to watch the same Keynote video that will be live-streamed for the rest of us.

How to Tune in to Apple’s WWDC 2024 Keynote

Unlike some other recent events where Apple has changed up its timing, the WWDC Keynote is kicking off on the traditional schedule of 10 a.m. Pacific Time / 1 p.m. Eastern Time, and you’ll be able to watch it through all the usual channels.

Apple TV App

The most convenient way to watch any Apple event from an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV is through the built-in TV app. While Apple once had a dedicated Apple Events app that you had to download separately, it rolled that into the TV app about four years ago, which means there’s nothing extra that you need to install.

In fact, you won’t even need to do much searching. Open the TV app on Monday, and you should see WWDC on the main page. Apple usually lists its events prominently in the first three or four rows of the Home page, with a placeholder for the event appearing the night before or the morning of the event.

This isn’t just for Apple devices, either. If you’ve installed Apple’s TV app on your smart TV, game console, or other streaming device, you can also find the Apple Events channel and watch it on any of those devices as well.

YouTube

Like its other events, Apple is also live streaming the WWDC 2024 Keynote on its official YouTube channel for those who prefer to watch it that way.

YouTube is probably the most universal and accessible way to watch the WWDC Keynote, as it works in any browser and has mobile and smart TV apps for pretty much every platform you can imagine. The placeholder for the live event is already up, so you can visit the page now and set a reminder by clicking the Notify Me button so you won’t miss it.

Apple Events Site

If you’d prefer to avoid YouTube and just use a basic browser, Apple’s Events Site and Developer Site will also both be streaming the event live through a browser of your choice.

While it’s the same stream on both pages, the festivities will continue on Apple’s Developer site with the Platforms State of the Union at 1 p.m. Pacific Time, which provides a deeper dive into the new features and APIs that third-party apps can take advantage of.

Along the same lines, the WWDC Keynote and Platforms State of the Union will also be streamed in Apple’s Developer app, which will also include access to sessions, labs, and other WWDC activities throughout the week.
