How to watch Apple's 2017 WWDC event live

We'll be looking for a few things from Apple's most important platform.

Technical details: Apple's live stream can be viewed on its Safari browser on iOS devices running iOS 7 or later and Macs running OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) or later. According to several reports, new MacBooks will be introduced by Apple at the event along with its Siri home speaker. However, hardware will also be a focus of this year's event, but more on that later. There is some evidence to back this claim.

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference begins tomorrow, 5 June.

"Seventy billion dollars earned by developers is simply mind-blowing".

Of the two-to-four product events that Apple holds in a typical year, WWDC is usually the most interesting. On cards in a dark mode toggle in the UI aimed at improving battery life, new features, tweaks and enhancements for Siri, updates to iMessage and Facetime as well as updates to Apple's digital payment system Apple Pay. Apple will upgrade the MacBook Pro with a new Intel Kaby Lake processor, the 12-inch MacBook will sport a faster processor as well, and there's a chance the 13-inch MacBook Air could also be upgraded to get a new generation processor. What's more interesting is that basically nothing about iOS 11 has leaked yet - similar to previous year - except a "Files" placeholder app that suggests more granular access to files on iOS devices. Even AppleTV and iPods are supported as well.

Apple WWDC 2017: What will be the new MacBooks feature? New versions of Apple software - including macOS 10.13, watchOS 4, iOS 11 and tvOS 11 - are sure-fire inclusions. Given an opportunity to again re-imagine the iOS UI without the self-imposed time constraint, it's possible that Apple could come up with something less polarising. Apple is now expected to launch two iPad Pro tablets - one with a 10.5-inch display and the other with a 12.9-inch display.

Now, about refreshing the trashcan Mac Pro... However, there is not much information available about the upcoming iPad Pro, but one can expect stereo speakers, similar to what we have seen in earlier iPad Pro models, coupled with a virtual Home Button.

Some rumours suggest that the device is already in production and could go on sale by the end of the month. Calling it the Apple home speaker, the tipsters added that its availability will be delayed until late-2017.

He has stated that the Speaker will feature excellent sound and will be price higher than the competition. Apple's Jimmy Iovine has also said that the Music app will get a facelift that "better showcases video", in line with Apple's plans to create its own TV shows and movies; expect series like Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps to be featured prominently.
