If you feel Like you just watched an Apple The keyword is full of product ads, and that’s because you did! Last month, Apple executives appeared in a live video presentation where عرض brag about New iMacs, new iPads, and some other colorful trinkets.
But this week marks the arrival of Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, the annual gathering at which the company showcases all the upcoming improvements to iOS, macOS, iPadOS, and all the software that powers its devices and services. So while last month’s show was all about atoms, this week’s show is all about bits.
For a comprehensive summary of what to expect from WWDC 2021, see: Read the overview By Our Own Lauren Judd. The short version is that we can count on seeing some previews of the next versions of the software that powers the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. WWDC is, by name and by nature, a developer conference, so we can also expect the presentation to be a little more technical than the usual Apple product announcement.
One thing we are sure of is that today’s show will only be a preview of things to come. The software that Apple will show during its presentation will be available on devices later this year (most likely in September) and will only be available to developers and beta testers until then.
how to watch
Apple’s show will start at 1 PM ET, 10 AM PT, Today, Monday 7th June. You can stream it in the player at the top of this page. You can also view the stream on Apple websiteOr in the Apple TV app, or in business YouTube channel.
This Apple TV option is new as of last year — now that Apple has its own streaming service, it also has a dedicated video app on mobile devices, Apple TV boxes, Roku boxes, and on some smart TVs. You can open this app and find the option to stream your Monday event whether or not you subscribe to the monthly streaming service on Apple TV +.
We recommend streaming on TV using the YouTube app or the Apple TV app. The company’s brilliantly produced showcases feature many high-impact visuals that look good in the larger format. Furthermore, if you watch it on your TV, it frees up your laptop for Slacking and tweeting about Craig Federighi’s poetry. (Apple’s vice president runs the show at WWDC and he really has Gorgeous mane.)
Expect the Apple show to last about 90 minutes. Once the event is over, come back to WIRED for coverage that gathers ads and highlights industry trends Apple is responding to and moving forward with its latest software releases.
