WWDC 2022: How to watch Apple’s keynote on YouTube

Apple’s weeklong WWDC conference kicks off with a pre-taped keynote that’s scheduled to start broadcasting live via, through the company’s TV app and on YouTube on Monday, June 6, 2022, at 10am Pacific Time, 1pm Eastern Time. Given YouTube’s ubiquitousness, many folks will likely follow along on YouTube.

And now, Apple’s official YouTube channel has published a live stream for the WWDC 2022 keynote. Currently, this is only a placeholder image for the keynote stream. Thankfully, you can visit the page listed right ahead if you’d like to be reminded when the keynote is about to start broadcasting live on Google’s video platform.

After clicking the link, you’ll land on a placeholder page on or in the mobile app. There’s just one step left: Hit “Set reminder” to be notified ahead of the live stream. That’s all you need to do, trust us. If you have the YouTube app, you’ll receive a push notification on your iPhone 30 minutes before showtime. If you don’t have the app installed, Google will add an alert about the keynote to other notifications on, but you’ll need to be logged in to see it.

Apple’s event streams usually go live 30 minutes ahead of actual event. During that time, the live stream on, in the TV app and on YouTube typically plays some looping animation in anticipation of the event, accompanied by upbeat music. Just so you know, in case you haven’t watched an Apple keynote before…
