Apple to livestream WWDC 2014 keynote

Apple WWDC 2014

Apple updated the web page for its upcoming WWDC 2014 event today to confirm that it will livestream next week’s keynote event. Expected to be hosted by Apple CEO Tim Cook, the event will take place on June 2 and will start at 1300 EDT (1000 PDT).

Best of all, Apple has finally relented and opened up the livestream to Windows devices. This year’s livestream will require Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later; or QuickTime 7 on Windows. It will also be possible to watch the event via the second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

As for what Apple could announce, it only promises “exciting announcements” without specifying more. Among those, we can expect some new hardware, details on upcoming versions of iOS and OS X and perhaps new apps and features focusing on health. Unlikely to be announced are any new iPhones or iPad models as these will likely be unveiled in the fall.

Some 100 technical sessions covering topics from developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies will follow over the four day event. Apple will also hold a a new series of get-togethers focused on particular topics with special guest speakers and activities.
