How to Watch the WWDC iOS 6 Announcement Live

UPDATE: How to Watch iOS 7 Announcement Live – June 10th 2013

Apple normally provides live streams of product announcements and events, but it doesn’t look like there will be an official live stream of the WWDC 2012 Keynote from Apple. It is unlikely that Apple will stream the keynote, thanks to the $1,599 ticket prices developers pay, but they could relent thanks to the enhanced interest in iOS 6 and the iPhone and short supply of tickets which pushed prices up to $5,000.

  1. “If Apple surprises us with a live stream of WWDC 2012 it will likely show up here, but you’ll need a Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to watch the stream.”

    What are you talking about?

    • Apple only allows the stream to go to Apple-devices. They do a version check in the browser to determine if you are running OS X or Mobile Safari before you can view the stream.

  2. I think that the apple website is down because of huge data streaming issues. If they wanted to update it for their products they could do it without displaying this page through a test server. It is possible they are attempting to show it and the crash is another indication of such an offering. I am really hoping to see an updated iMac at the keynote as well as the release of iOS 6.

    Get the popcorn!

  3. I loved the coverage guys! Watching everyone scurry to keep a feed going was a riot and having differing opinions from full on mac devotee/idiot to an extremely unbiased reviewer/commenter was much better than I expected!!!
