This morning Apple announced via their events page that they will be live-streaming their 2015 World Wide Developer Conference Keynote next week. This isn’t a big surprise, as they have been offering a live-stream of their Keynote announcements and conferences for some time now. Hopefully they will have better luck than they did last year during the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch announcement, where a Chinese interpreter translating over the main audio stream was one of the most memorable takeaways from the special event.
In addition to the being live-streamed over Safari, there will also be a dedicated Apple Events Channel offered for those of you with an Apple TV. The event goes live at 1 PM EST.
To watch the WWDC live you need to meet or exceed the following requirements
- Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later
- Safari on iOS 6.0 or later
- Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later
If you’re stuck at work on a Windows computer, or that just happens to be your PC of choice–you, too, can still follow the announcements via the live-stream using a free video player like VLC.
- Simply launch the App and open a Network Stream.
- Enter the Apple TV video stream link
- Start the stream when it goes live.
