It’s that time of year again! Apple will livestream its Worldwide Developer ConferenceWWDC event on June 8, starting at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST). Watching is easy, because Apple will stream it for us all to enjoy:
However, the Apple official stream is limited to Macs, iPhone, iPads, and Apple TVs. Apple TV users can watch the event, as long as their Apple TV software has been updated to version 6.2 or later. Apple says the live streaming video will work on Safari, but you will need Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later.
What about those of us without an Apple device? While Apple doesn’t think you care enough to watch the keynote, there are ways to do so if you’re keen. According to 9to5Mac.com, the stream can be played through VLC Media Player on Windows or Android, simply by pasting this linked URL into the Open Network Stream option box.
If you’re unable to make the event, you can watch streaming video sessions from the WWDC app. As of right now, the app only features videos from previous years, but that will change when WWDC 2015 starts. At that point, users will have access to content from the many events at the conference. This year, the WWDC app also works on the Apple Watch, making it easier to access conference information right from your wrist.
At the time of writing, there are no online alternative options to view the WWDC keynote, should Apple’s feed prove to be problematic, but we’ll update here if any turn up. There is also an official WWDC 2015 app to download from the App Store here.
