WWDC or World Wide Developer Conference, an yearly event where Apple interacts with its developers and usually makes the next big product related announcements, is set to take place starting June 2nd to June 6th. If you are an Apple enthusiast and would like to closely follow the conference without being able to physically attend it, then Apple has obliged by stating that it would be streaming the opening WWDC keynote live.
Apple took to its WWDC event page to break the happy news for all those who will be unable to attend the event in San Francisco. The WWDC keynote will go live at about 10:00 AM PST, but we all know that these things rarely are on exact schedule, so you can expect a few minutes here and there. According to the web page, in order to watch the keynote stream live you will need the following in your tech arsenal:
Live streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.
Not a whole lot is known in terms of what Apple would announce at the WWDC this year, but the hushed rumors are, just like last year there will be a lot of emphasis and spotlight on the software side of things instead of new gadgetry. Apple is expected to unveil the iOS 8 as well as OSX 10.10 version. The OSX 10.10 is reportedly going to be the biggest change to OSX since its inception and apparently a lot of work has gone in to it and would bring similar flat and colorful UI to your Macbook as seen on the iPhones and iPads with iOS 7. iOS 8 is expected to be a minor upgrade, though it would be interesting to see if there are any clues which point towards the expected iPhone 6.
Apple may also refresh the lines of iMacs at the WWDC, so if you are an iMac user, that is something that will surely interest you. It is unlikely though that any of the high profile products in works (a guess) such as iWatch, Macbook Airs with Retina Display or the new Apple TV would be shown off at the WWDC, but hey, we are open for a surprise.
