Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) kicks off at 1 p.m. Eastern and 10 a.m. Pacific Time. The iPhone maker added a new icon today to users’ Apple TV main screen titled “Apple Events.” The company has also provided a link on its official website. Now people can view a live stream of today’s WWDC keynote delivered by Tim Cook and other top Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) executives.
What is Expected at Apple’s WWDC:
Watching the event live will give users a much better experience than following live blogs. The iPhone maker usually doesn’t offer live streaming of its events, but the company has surprised everyone. This year’s event is likely to be focused on software and services. The highlights of WWDC 2013 keynote are expected to be iOS 7, the upgraded version of the iPhone, and the iPad operating system. The company is also likely to release OS X 10.9, an overhaul of the Mac operating system. Tim Cook also recently suggested during the All Things D conference that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) may make iPhones more receptive to third party apps.
The company may also display a refreshed version of its MacBook Air lineup. The new notebooks are expected to be equipped with Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s latest Haswell processors, and dual microphones that will be used for voice recognition, according to Apple Insider. Industry insiders also expect a new “iRadio” streaming music product.
