How to watch WWDC 2018: Apple keynote livestream

Traditionally a software developer's conference, the two big ones for WWDC are the next installments of iOS and macOS, which will then enter the consumer beta stage and you'll be able to try them ahead of their release in September/October.

Last year, Apple rolled out new iPads, iMacs and the HomePod during WWDC - its first hardware announcements in three WWDCs.

In terms of new software, there's plenty of smoke around big iOS 12 reveals, a watchOS 5 unveiling, and even ARKit 2.0.

Stay tuned for the latest tech updates. That makes it 6pm BST if you live in the United Kingdom, 7PM CET, or Tuesday 3:00 am AEST. If you are unable to grab the tickets of the highly anticipated event of the year, or you are not in the U.S. then you can switch to the live streaming of the event.

The iOS App Store has been a huge money maker for Apple, and for its developers. You can watch it from any place across the globe. The company launched the iAd platform in 2010 allowing developers to include Apple's tech in its apps to target user with ads. The company will outline its software plans for Macs, iPhones, iPads, and much more. However hardware announcements are expected to be held for Apple's major product event it holds each year usually in September. Early this year, couple of shareholders - Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) urged Apple to offer more tools to keep smartphone addiction in check among children. At the time, Apple said it was working on "new features and enhancements" to address the concerns, and in March it added a new webpage to educate parents about existing controls.

Apple (AAPL) will likely debut tools to track and set limits for time spent on certain apps.

Apple's iPhone SE 2 might also launch as an India-exclusive this year, points out a new report.

If we're lucky, the conference might also include some more information about some new additions to the MacBook lineup, as a new MacBook Air has been slated for release some time this year. But with a 1 billion iPhone user base under its belt, Apple will surely look to catch up its voice assistant with newer and more AI-enabled features so as to compete with Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant.
