As announced last night, Apple will live stream its WWDC keynote at 10 AM PST on June 8th, next Monday, where it will announce iOS 9 and OS X 10.11. The apple.com/live site confirms that the official website stream is limited to Macs, iPhones, iPads and Apple TV.

The steps are pretty straightforward.

  • Download VLC for your device. This is the download link for Windows.
  • Launch VLC once installed.
  • Navigate to the Media tab and select Open Network Stream. The wording is slightly different on Android but you are looking for a place where you can paste a video link.
  • In the URL field, type or copy the following URL. (This is the video stream the Apple TV uses internally to show the keynote.)

  • Press Play to start watching. The stream will likely appear broken until the video has actually begun (at 10 AM PST) but will start working when the event goes live.

Apple will post rolling updates from the event at apple.com/live. Naturally, 9to5Mac will have full coverage of the announcements so stay tuned. We’ll also have full hands on with the software announcements after the event and throughout the entire week of the conference. Catch up on what to expect from WWDC here.
