You’ll need to use Safari for this to work, so do not try it in Chrome or Firefox. If you try this on your Windows computer or Android the stream will not work.

Apple also includes a way to watch the iOS 9 Apple event live on your Apple TV. You need an Apple TV 2 or Apple TV 3 for this to work. Turn on your Apple TV and open the Special Events app. Here you will see the WWDC 2015 Keynote.

It’s a good idea to open up the stream at least 10 minutes early so you can start the pre-Keynote video and make sure you are ready.

Here’s a look at five things we want Apple to fix in iOS 9. We expect to see iOS 9 on stage today, a new iOS 8.4 release date and a new music streaming service. Although we don’t expect an iPhone 6s at the event, the iPhone 6s rumors are flowing freely this summer. Here is a look at the most important iPhone 6s rumors yet.

15 Important iPhone 6s Rumors

iPhone 6s Release Date

iPhone 6s Release Date

We know Apple plans an event for June 2015, but this is not where you should expect to hear about the iPhone 6s at this event. WWDC 2015 will more than likely focus on iOS 9 and a new version of OS X for Mac.

Expect an iPhone 6s announcement in fall 2015 at a special event dedicated to the iPhone, and possibly the iPod touch.

The last four iPhone release dates took place in a span of 30 days from late September to mid-October and we expect the iPhone 6s release date will arrive in a similar time. A best guess would be that the iPhone 6s release date will come on September 18th or September 25th, based on historical data only.
