Apple Worldwide Developers Conference for this year kicks off on June 5 at 10 AM PT. The event is popular for its software-centric setup, but it might change this year as many believe we'll see a host of new hardware from Apple. The tech giant might give us some surprising revelations to shake the tech market.
Now, here's a rundown of what to expect at WWDC 2017 keynote and how to watch the announcements from your iPhone, MacBook and iPad.
Bookmark this landing page in Apple website to watch the conference from the comfort of your own room. Add the event to your calendar so that you will be notified 15 minutes before the show.
Just like previous Apple live streams, you can stream the event on multiple devices, including the Apple TV, Mac, iPod touch, iPad Pro, and iPhone. HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology of Apple requires viewers to have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, or a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5. For Apple TV viewers, make your TV runs on software 6.2 or later.
Of course, Windows 10 PC owners can watch WWDC 2017 live from their computers using the latest version of Microsoft Edge.
This year's WWDC will take place in San Jose Convention Center rather than the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, which is the usual venue for Apple events. Good thing, WWDC 2017 was announced earlier this year to help attendees adjust their travel plans.
As we mentioned earlier, we will not only witness software demonstrations in the event. Alongside with demos for iOS 11, macOS 10.13, watchOS 4, and TvOS 11, we'll also see the unveiling of new iPad Pros and even new Macbook products.
Currently, there are two variants of iPad Pro in the market, a 9.7-inch model and 12.9-inch model. Both tablets run on iOS mobile operating system and support Apple Pencil stylus. In WWDC next month, Apple is reportedly planning to debut a 10.5-inch model that has thinner bezels for a sophisticated look. It also means the tablet will have a bigger screen than the low-end 9.7-inch model.
For Macbook fans, we might see a new version of the laptop. Tech experts say Apple could release an update on their Macbook hardware to keep in line with other laptop manufacturers such as HP and Acer. HP's Spectre 13 is now using Intel's seventh generation chip and is set to dominate the laptop market this year. In order not to be left behind, there's a strong possibility that we'll see a new Macbook at next month's event, according to PC Advisor.
