Monday through Friday of next week, Apple’s most important event of the year will take place – its Worldwide Developers Conference, now in the 31st edition. For the first time in its history, it will be all virtual / remote, due to the pandemic of the new Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Although WWDC is a weeklong event focused on developers, on the morning of the first day there is always an opening keynote with the presentation of the new Apple operating systems – this year, the iOS 14, The iPadOS 14, The macOS 10.16 (or 11, you’ll know), the watchOS 7 it’s the tvOS 14.
It is not a tradition in WWDCs, but sometimes Apple takes advantage of these keynotes to launch new hardware as well. This year, there is great expectation for a new iMac, the rumored “AirTags”, perhaps an update to the 16-inch MacBook Pro and perhaps a new member of the AirPods line with circumaural design (over-ear).
This keynote will take place at 10:00 am on Monday (June 22) local time, which is equivalent to 14h by Brasília time. Next, you’ll know how to follow the event.
Live streaming from Apple
Obviously, we will have a keynote broadcast Live via streaming of video.
It can be followed by either the company’s website (requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running Safari on iOS 10 or higher; a Mac running Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or higher; or a PC running Microsoft Edge on Windows 10; and Apple even mentions that users of other platforms will be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox too) as well as a second generation Apple TV (or higher) with the latest version of your operating system installed – now via the TV app instead of Apple Events.
Version 1.6 (917.5 KB) Requires iOS 10.2 or superior
This year, Apple will also stream live on YouTube:
Alternatively, anyone who wants to can download and follow the unofficial app Apple Events for macOS – developed by Brazilian Guilherme Rambo – and follow the transmission by him, too (also supports transmission to Google Chromecast).
Even with Apple’s live broadcast, our MM Live is guaranteed, with event information brought to you in real time, point by point, in Portuguese.
It’s a great addition to the official Apple broadcast and a perfect alternative if you can’t keep up with the broadcast itself at keynote time (it will be business hours in Brazil, after all), since we do MM Live both in text and with images – and it works well via desktops or mobile.
We will start our live blogging at 1:45 pm.
For those who cannot follow everything in detail during the keynote, we will post on Twitter at @MacMagazine the main highlights of what is being announced there.
We don’t want to flood timelines others for nothing, so the idea is just to post some tweets during the entire event.
Obviously, while all of the above happens in real time during Apple’s presentation, we will have a team working hard on full and detailed articles on everything that is announced and what else is going on here for the site.
Although the keynote itself lasts between 1h30 and 2h (maximum), normally, our coverage extends until late at night – depending on the volume of news, of course.
We will record issue # 378 of MacMagazine On Air on Thursday, June 25, probably from 6pm.
Exceptionally, due to the importance of the event, we will open the live recording to everyone here on the website (something that is normally closed to bosses). Stay tuned!
As is also a tradition, we created a ticket that you can place on the iPhone Wallet app in order to be informed a little before the special event starts.

So, everyone anxious ?! ?
Update Jun 17, 2020 at 06:01
Apple has already released the link to its broadcast on YouTube, so we’ve incorporated it above in the post.
An interesting thing that some pointed out is that nowhere does Apple say it will be a “live broadcast”, in fact, as in previous traditional events. That is, there is a possibility that this keynote was pre-recorded and edited. We’ll see. ?
