How to watch Apple’s WWDC 2014 keynote speech live online

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference is about to kick off at the start of next week, and you can watch the big keynote speech live online.

The keynote begins at 18:00 BST (10:00 PDT) on Monday 2 June, and if you point your browser at the Apple website here, you'll be able to watch the proceedings unfold. Cupertino notes that live streaming the video will require OS X 10.6 and Safari 4 or better on your Mac – and Safari on iOS 4.2 or better on your mobile device. Streaming on Apple TV will necessitate version 5.0.2 of the device's software on your second or third-gen Apple TV.

Apple is expected to do things rather differently at WWDC this time around, with a focus on OS X and a major redesign of the desktop operating system with version 10.10. Apple's mobile platform won't be forgotten, naturally, with plenty of revelations on the iOS 8 front expected, including a new Healthbook app.

Speculation has also pointed to the fact that Apple is set to reveal a new smart home software platform that will let you control the lights, appliances and security of your home with an iPhone.

Apple has also made an official WWDC app available, which lets you browse a full schedule of events, and provides maps to help navigate around the Moscone West centre in San Francisco. The app will also provide videos of WWDC sessions for those who can't make it to them. So even if you're not attending, you'll be able to partake of a fair bit of the experience...
