Apple’s WWDC 2013 keynote event is today, starting at 1:00PM Eastern. If you’re ready to be on the edge of your seat waiting to hear all the news on iOS 7, updates to OS X, and whatever other news Apple has for us, there are several good ways to follow the event live.
Here are the 3 main sources I’ll be using to follow the WWDC keynote event:
— Apple’s own Live Stream of the event. You can watch it live via Apple’s own stream here: http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/ . Apple notes these requirements for the live stream: Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.
— Engadget Live Blog: These guys have been doing these liveblogs for a number of years now, and they’ve got it down to a pretty fine art. http://www.engadget.com/2013/06/10/apple-wwdc-2013-liveblog/
— Gizmodo Live Blog: Gizmodo are also veterans at live coverage of these sort of events. http://live.gizmodo.com/
A few of the other usual suspects for live blogging have dropped out once the news came out that Apple was live streaming the event. I prefer to have a few sources lined up and open in a browser, since there have been some issues in year’s past with Apple’s live streams of these events – everything from slow buffering to the stream just dying at particular points in the event.
Hopefully we’ll hear some exciting news from Apple today.
