Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off in a just few short hours, and if you’re not lucky enough to attend in person, don’t sweat it. There’s going to be a live stream.
WWDC 2018 is where Apple typically lays out its software plan for the next year. We’re expecting major news involving macOS 10.14, iOS 12, watchOS 5, and tvOS 12.
The show kicks off at 1PM EST (10AM PT) today, and Apple is making it relatively easy for everyone to follow along.
How to watch: Apple.com will be hosting the live stream for iOS, macOS, and Windows 10 users. On a computer, you will need Safari on the Mac and Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge on Windows. To watch on a television, you will need a second-generation Apple TV or newer with the Apple Events app installed.
For play by play coverage, the Mashable live blog is the place to be. You can expect commentary on the news as it breaks, along with photos and other dispatches live from the event.
Apple will publish an on-demand video of the keynote shortly after it wraps, in case you miss it or want to see it again, too.
We are expecting the focus to be heavily on software this year, with not much hardware news. iOS 12 will hopefully bring bug fixes and performance boosts, but we still hope to see new features like dark mode and revamped notifications.
Yesterday, we got a peak of macOS 10.14 thanks to a snippet of video a developer found. This release will also focus in on performance improvements but is also updating dark mode and bringing Apple News to the Mac. The latter here shines a light on the tighter integration of iOS and macOS that is rumored.
Either way, all we be unveiled soon, and Mashable will be your place for the latest news when WWDC 18 kicks off at 10AM PT/1PM ET.
