As usual, Apple will be live streaming the WWDC keynote on its website, so Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users just need to follow the link in Safari.

In terms of system requirements, you'll need to be running Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, or a Mac with at least Safari 6.0.5 on OS X 10.8.5 or later.

Apple TV users can also stream the keynote via the dedicated Events app. You' need a 2nd or 3rd generation box running version 6.2 of the software or better – or any 4th-gen Apple TV (2015) will do the trick.

You can even tune in on Android devices, though this requires a workaround.

To get the live stream on Google's mobile OS, you'll need to have VLC player (free on Android) downloaded and installed on your device.

Fire it up, tap the menu button and then select the 'Stream' option.

Then just input the following URL: "http://p.events-delivery.apple.com.edgesuite.net/15pijbnaefvpoijbaefvpihb06/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8"

That's it. You can now smirk, chortle and face-palm the night away as Apple announces features that were on your Galaxy device two years ago.
