How to watch WWDC 2020

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. PT on June 22 with the main keynote presentation. There are lots of ways to tune in. You can stream the show at, on YouTube, by using the Apple Developer app or website, and on the Apple TV app. A live video of the presentation will be embedded in this article as soon as it is available, so make sure to check back regularly.

After the keynote, at 2 p.m. PT, Apple will start its Platforms State of the Union address, which takes a deeper look at how MacOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS have developed over the last year. This will be available to stream on the Apple Developer app and website.

Throughout the week, Apple will host more than 100 engineering sessions. Each of these will go in-depth on a topic, showing developers how to use all the latest and upcoming features in Apple’s operating systems to build or improve their apps. Videos will be posted at 10 a.m. PT each day during the week and will be available on the Apple Developer app and website.

Developers will also be able to attend virtual one-on-one sessions with Apple engineers. These will be by appointment only and are particularly useful for developers who have a certain question or problem in mind.

Finally, a new addition this year are Apple Developer Forums. More than 1,000 Apple engineers will be in attendance to answer questions posted by the community. Anyone can view the questions and answers, but only Apple Developer Program members can ask new questions.

What to expect at WWDC 2020

The Mac is expected to have a large presence at WWDC, with the long-rumored switch to ARM processors potentially in the cards. Elsewhere, Apple may preview new devices, including a redesigned iMac, Tile-like Bluetooth trackers called AirTags, and over-ear headphones called either StudioPods or AirPods Studio.

Apple uses WWDC to preview upcoming versions of its operating systems, and this year will be no different. You can also expect to see all the new features in iOS 14, iPadOS14, macOS 10.16, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14.

We will have all the details on everything Apple announces as it happens, so check back throughout the event for more info.

People have been complaining for years that Apple should just merge its mobile and desktop operating systems, and they might finally see their wish come true -- sort of. That’s because a new rumor claims Apple is working on bringing macOS to the M2 iPad Pro, but it could be nothing more than a tall tale.

The rumor comes from leaker Majin Bu on Twitter, who claims their sources have told them Apple is working on a “smaller” version of macOS that would be exclusively for the M2 iPad Pro, which Apple has only just released.

The Dynamic Island was one of the standout features at Apple’s iPhone 14 launch event in September, and it contained just enough classic Apple magic to wow audiences tuning in. But it left us wondering -- how would it look on a Mac?

Now, we have an answer thanks to Reddit user DavidGamingHDR, who posted a mocked-up render of the Dynamic Island adorning a MacBook Pro to the r/Mac sub-reddit. And now that we’ve seen it, we’re intrigued -- and a little concerned.

Apple's annual iPhone event is over, and it resulted in some significant announcements, including the entire line of iPhone 14 devices, the new Apple Watch Ultra, and the second-gen AirPods Pro.
