Apple has been a big advocate of its own exclusivity, but it looks like it is set to change soon.

Apple WWDC feat

Apple has always been known for its sense of exclusivity. Until recently, Apple streamed its event live only on its Safari browser and Microsoft Edge. Apart from these, the only way to watch Apple’s events live was via the WWDC app or on an Apple TV.

All that is set to change this year, because Apple, according to a report by Cult of Mac, is all set to support the WWDC live stream this year on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. So we can expect that the annual message saying that the livestream is best experienced on Safari and Microsoft Edge will see some additions this year.

This could be an indication that Apple is looking to widen the viewership of its annual developer conference by adding two of the most popular browsers in the world and not just limiting it to owners of Apple devices and Microsoft Windows 10 PC users.

WWDC is all set to take place between June 4 and June 8. The keynote will be held on June 4 10AM PT, which is 10:30PM IST. Apple will be hosting the keynote in San Jose, California, at the McEnery Convention Center and CEO Tim Cook is expected to unveil the latest platform changes Apple has made to iOS and macOS, among others. At this year’s WWDC conference, Apple is widely expected to unveil iOS 12, macOS 10.14, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12.

Lastly, there have been rumors that Apple will launch the iPhone SE 2 at the event, but latest reports state that Apple may save it for the September event.
