Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference – better known as WWDC – kicks off tonight.
Here’s what time you need to tune in and how to catch the keynote live from Apple Park.
How to watch WWDC 2021
Like last year’s Developers Conference, WWDC 2021 will take place online. While WWDC is scheduled to run from June 7 to June 11, today’s keynote is where we expect the biggest announcements to take place.

What to expect
We’ve already shared what we expect to see from Apple’s big summer event this year, including our first proper look at iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Updates rumoured to be coming to the operating system in 2021 include a new widget view for the iPad, improved privacy controls and customisable profiles. The company shared a promotional image for the event that suggests iMessage will see an update in the OS update.
The image also hints at updates to the company’s AirPods and MacBook lines, leaving us hopeful we’ll see the rumoured Apple M1X chipset get revealed tonight, along with the MacBook Pro 2021. The timing of both would make sense considering the recent launch of Apple Music Lossless and Apple’s ongoing transition away from Intel to its own Apple Silicon processors.
That said, we don’t expect too many hardware announcements to take place tonight. WWDC is firstly a developers conference, meaning it typically focuses on software updates rather than new products.
