How to Watch Apple's WWDC 2017 Presentation Today

It's that time of year again — Apple will be hitting the stage in California to talk about new features coming to iOS and macOS devices in the near future. Of course, you're going to want to tune in and be up to date on all the changes coming to your Apple products.

The official presentation starts at 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST. To make sure nothing hinders or interrupts your viewing experience, here's what Apple requires for viewing:

Requirements: Live streaming uses Apple's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).

If you have one, the presentation is easily accessible on Apple TV. The most current model has an app called Apple Events that can be downloaded from the App Store, which will be streaming WWDC. For other models, an Apple Events channel should appear on your screen just before the presentation begins, so keep an eye out for that.

For Android users, things get a little tricky. You won't be able to watch the stream natively on your phone. Instead, you will need to download VLC player, then go to the menu and tap Stream. Copy this URL and paste it into VLC. Press play, and you will be able to watch from there.

Click this link to check it out. Be warned, there won't be a video feed until the stream begins, so until then there won't be a video field to see.
