Apple will host the 2021 Annual World Developer Conference (WWDC) on Monday, June 7. The keynote speech will begin at 10 am PDT (10:30 pm U.S. Standard Time) and will be broadcast live for all users on the company’s website and YouTube. The YouTube link is now live for users to set notifications and reminders. Apple has also started to register for Digital Lounges, where developers can participate in Q&A, SwiftUI-related special events, etc. with Apple engineers within a week.
The YouTube live video of the WWDC 2021 keynote speech has been launched. Users can set reminders on YouTube to avoid missing June 7. In addition to releasing new software, Apple is also expected to release new MacBook Pro models. You can even watch the June 7 live broadcast in the embedded video below.
In addition to YouTube, the WWDC 2021 keynote speech will also be broadcast live through the Apple TV application and a dedicated event page. Apple points out that you can experience the best streaming on iPhone 7 or later, iPad (5th generation or later), or iPod touch (7th generation) using Safari on iOS 12 or later. The event page flow works best on a Mac with Safari and macOS Mojave 10.14 or later. Streaming to your TV requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) or a device that supports AirPlay 2 and has the latest Apple TV software. You can also use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge (requires MSE, H.264, and AAC) browsers to access the stream.
In addition, Apple has started to register for Digital Lounges, a virtual space where developers can interact with Apple engineers. Apple will host special events related to developer tools, SwiftUI, accessibility and machine learning through these digital lounges. A small number of digital lounges are provided for the first time this year, so the number is limited, first come first served. Developers must be a member of the Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program, or be the winner of the WWDC21 Swift Student Challenge in order to register. If you meet the conditions, you can go to the dedicated page here to register.
