Apple's annual developer conference is kicking off later today in California. The highlight of the event for tech consumers, Apple and iPhone fans is undoubtedly the opening keynote with CEO Tim Cook. Here's how you can watch the live stream.
When is the Apple WWDC 2019 event?
The conference is held between June 3 and June 7 in San Jose, California. The biggest day for announcing the latest iOS software and Apple hardware is the first. The following days are mostly for developer sessions, where developers can meet with Apple engineers. Some interesting news could emerge out of these sessions, but it's the keynote that will interest most.
What can we expect to see at the WWDC 2019 keynote?
Software is usually the focus of WWDC, with Apple tending to opt for separate events to launch its hardware. The latest software package for Apple iPhones, iOS 13, will certainly play a big role today. Word on the street is that a system-wide dark mode is coming. Apple has already tried this with MacOS Mojave, and now iPhone will finally get to catch up.
There are also rumors of a new Sleep Mode for iOS that would work as a kind of Do Not Disturb feature, muting notifications and dimming the lock screen. Apparently, there might also be new multitasking features for iPad as well as some updated Siri stuff.
