Apple‘s annual developers conference WWDC 2016 kicks off tonight at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The Cupertino-based giant is expected to make a host of announcements, with most of them focused on the software side of things. But you don’t have to present there to watch the event, and Apple will be live streaming the entire keynote address. Hit the break to find the details about the live stream and how to watch it.
Apple’s WWDC 2016 keynote kicks off at 10:30PM IST tonight, and it will be live streamed on Apple’s events webpage. The live stream will work on all Apple devices, including an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running on iOS 7.0 or later. One can also watch the live stream on a Mac running on OS X 10.8.5 or later and with Safari 6.0.5 and above. For watching it on Apple TV, one needs either a second, third or fourth-generation Apple TV running on tvOS 6.2 or later. Those with a Windows PC will also be able to follow the live stream, and the only requirements are Windows 10 with pre-installed Microsoft Edge browser.
As is tradition, Apple is unlikely to make any major announcements around hardware tonight. But we can expect a glimpse at the upcoming iOS 10 as well as the latest OS X, which reports say will be rebranded to macOS. We also expect announcements around the latest watchOS and tvOS.
As far as iOS 10 is concerned, Apple is likely to bring in tweaks to the overall design scheme. These design tweaks include new colors, which will replace the overly white color scheme. Other services like Apple Music, Photos and iMessage too are expected to be overhauled. Reports claim that the iMessage service is likely to be introduced for the Android platform.
We also expect announcements around Siri, and Apple is likely to expand the digital assistant’s functionality to the OS X plaform as well. The company is believed to be opening Siri to the developers, who will then be able to make their apps and services accessible through Siri.
We will be covering tonight’s WWDC 2016 event live, and will bring all the announcements as and when they take place. So stay tuned.
