Apple to live stream 'exciting announcements' from June 2 WWDC 2014 keynote

Posted:
in General Discussion edited June 2014
When Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off next Monday, June 2, users from around the world will be able to see what the company announces thanks to a live streaming video of the keynote presentation.




Apple updated its website on Tuesday to reveal that the "exciting announcements" made at WWDC 2014 will be available to watch live, as they happen. Streaming requires Safari 4 or later on OS X 10.6 or later, Safari on iOS 4.2 or later, or QuickTime 7 on Windows. Streaming will also be available via the Apple TV to users with the second- or third-generation model running software 5.0.2 or later.

The event will begin live at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern next Monday. Apple is widely expected to introduce the next-generation versions of its iOS mobile operating system and OS X Mac operating system.

Apple's next major release of iOS 8 is rumored to focus on consolidating health and fitness tracking devices as well as smart home appliances, making them easier to control and use with a compatible iPhone or iPad. And the company is also rumored to be planning a visual refresh for its next major OS X release.

Apple announced that WWDC 2014 would kick off on June 2 in early April. The sold-out conference will be held at Moscone West in San Francisco, Calif.

Events scheduled for WWDC 2014 include:
  • More than 100 technical sessions presented by Apple engineers on a wide range of topics for developing, deploying and integrating the latest iOS and OS X technologies;
  • more than 1,000 Apple engineers supporting over 100 hands-on labs and events to provide developers with code-level assistance, insight into optimal development techniques and guidance on how they can make the most of iOS and OS X technologies in their apps;
  • the latest innovations, features and capabilities of iOS and OS X, and how to enhance an app's functionality, performance, quality and design;
  • the opportunity to connect with thousands of fellow iOS and OS X developers from around the world--last year more than 60 countries were represented;
  • a new series of get togethers for attendees focused on particular topics with special guest speakers and activities;
  • engaging and inspirational lunchtime sessions with leading minds and influencers from the worlds of technology, science and entertainment; and
  • Apple Design Awards which recognize iPhone, iPad and Mac apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design.

    Yay! Almost can't wait... except that on my deadline I hope to get quite a bit completed before next Monday, so the time can drag, that's okay by me (sigh).

    They obviously have something "exciting" to show, otherwise they wouldn't be live streaming it and promoting their "exciting announcements".

     

    I for one will definitely be tuning in.:smokey:

     

    And to those who think that Apple doesn't live stream events, I remember them live streaming events more than a decade ago. Of course at that time, the quality wasn't exactly 1080.<img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

    I don't see why the 4S won't get iOS 8. The 4 got iOS 7, and the 4S is a significant upgrade in terms of processor power from the 4.

     

    By this fall when the new iPhones and iPads come out, Apple probably won't be selling anymore 32bit devices (except for some 5C's or equivalent in emerging markets). The year-old models will be A7 equipped devices and the new stuff will be A8. Even then, Apple can't really make iOS 8 64bit exclusive because of all the 4S, 5 and 5C phones out there.

     

    I think iOS 9 is when Apple will go 64bit exclusive (even the 5 or 5C won't get it) and iOS 8 will be the last version available to "almost everyone".

     

     

    That said, there are really 3 things Apple haters can't stand: WWDC and the announcements for the iPhone and iPad. Like a single person sitting at home on Valentine's Day, all they can do is sulk and whine. The real kicker is it's 3 times a year instead of only once.

    That's what I'll be using too to stream this event.:smokey:

     

    At least this event has zero chance of being ruined by any spoilers or people live blogging from the event.

     

    It's so much better to just watch the damn thing live.:)

    About time - seems ages since we last got a live stream!

    I'm off work next week as well so I'll actually be able to watch it.

    "I don't see why the 4S won't get iOS 8. The 4 got iOS 7, and the 4S is a significant upgrade in terms of processor power from the 4."

    Plus, the 4S is still an actively sold product.

    Yeah, I imagine that all of my favorite people will be sitting on the front row.

     

    Al Gore will be there with a grin on his face sitting next to Dr. Dre, and Wozniak will also be there, probably using a huge Android phone.<img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" /> 

     

    Instead of getting pissed off at who's in the audience, I will focus my attention to what's happening on stage instead. That is probably much more exciting.<img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

    I did know that of course, and I like that fact, though I don't listen to or tune in to any talk shows.

     

    Apple is liked by many people, regardless of their particular persuasion.:)

    Hey Debbie Downer, I bet that you don't get invited to a lot of parties!

    A live stream means on-stage demos will be light. Demo-heavy events are always delayed in case of a crash that can be edited out before the delayed stream goes live.

    This means we won't see something like the 2007 WWDC keynote (a delayed event that was very demo heavy), but instead something like the first iPad mini keynote (a live event where only the iPad's homescreen was shown live, and everything else was slides).
