How to Live Stream at Apple’s WWDC on Monday
Like any major event this year, Apple WWDC 2020 will be an entirely online event to keep attendees safe. While this changes the nature of the event for those attending in person, you can still watch the big press conference live on Monday June 22nd at 1PM ET / 10PM PT from multiple platforms.
For the first time in history, WWDC will also be streaming to YouTube, and you can set a registration reminder via Apple’s official YouTube page or by clicking the video below. Just hover your mouse over the video and click / tap the Set Reminder button.

What to expect
Apple’s WWDC 2020 event may be a different experience than we’re used to, but many more big announcements are expected. Here’s what we’ll likely see based on what we’ve seen historically at past events as well as recent rumors and leaks.
New OS updates
If past WWDC events are worth ditching, we’ll likely see the next iterations of many Apple operating systems. IOS / iPad OS 14, macOS 10.16, tvOS 14 and watchOS 7 will be next in the update cycle, and each of them will have their own new features, which will be discussed during the online presentation.
New Mac hardware
We often see new Apple hardware announced at WWDC, and all the rumors this year point to big updates for the Mac.
First, a new iMac model is expected to be released later this year. This 2020 model will likely get an updated display with thinner bezels and no doubt some hardware upgrade.
Likewise, a new line of ARM-based Macs and laptops may be unveiled this year. Rumor has it that Apple will move to an ARM processor and ditch the Intel chips that have been used in the past. This would give Apple more control over the internal hardware and software capabilities of the Mac, just like the iPhone (which is also an ARM-based device).
The first ARM-based Macs are expected to arrive in late 2020 or early 2021, so an announcement next week would make sense if this is indeed Apple’s timeline. The pandemic has slowed production across the tech industry, so it’s always possible that these anticipated announcements have changed. Either way, we’ll find out soon.
