How to Watch the WWDC iOS 6 Announcement Live
Apple’s WWDC 2012 Keynote will kick off at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco at 10 AM Pacific / 1PM Eastern, during which Tim Cook will announce iOS 6, new features for the iPhone and iPad and likely new MacBook Pro models.
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.
We’ve reached out to Apple for confirmation of a live stream of the WWDC 2012 Keynote and iOS 6 announcement, but have not heard back.
While Apple will not likely provide a live stream of WWDC 2012, they will publish the video to Apple.com and to Youtube within hours of the event. Here’s Last year’s WWDC Keynote.
GottaBeMobile will be covering the event as it happens, but if you want the WWDC news as it breaks, here’s how to watch the iOS 6 announcement live.
