Wants to reach communities underrepresented in academies to help foster diversity in the app development landscape. There are guidelines, accessibility, and more. It’s nice to see, and many of these communities have created apps that have been “a huge hit” on the App Store, according to Cook.

Tim is now in the video! He promises some big announcements, talks about superpowers for developers, making “world-changing apps”.

We’re getting a video now. That’s what you’ll see I think if you’re watching the live stream.

Back to Tim. “Let’s start the show!”

Craig is here now. “WWDC is a very exciting time for people working in software at Apple.”

“The focus in our life’s work is to create a platform for our users, for a future for our friends and family and for everyone around the world.”

“Go developers!” Great cheers there.

The music has begun! The crowd cheers. The sun is shiny. This is a nice bloody thing to be fair. Very good feeling, even for a pessimistic old man like me.

And Tim Cook is here on stage! “Nice to see you all in person at WWDC!” There is also a drone overhead.

here we are! There is a lot of excitement here from the press, developers, and Apple employees. Not just about what Apple will show, but how nice it is to have a (semi) personal event again!

Well the event will start in 10 minutes we were just told. I’ll quickly fill up my own (Apple-branded) drink container. Moisturizing people!

we are here. Apple takes Covid precautions very seriously, so we all wear (Apple made) face masks, even outside.

The space in front of the home screen fills up quickly. We have some nice seats, but this sun is heavy. My poor British skin suffers. Classic Brit, come see Apple and complain about the weather.

We take our seats, and I’m here with Lance, US Editor-in-Chief!

Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, this year’s WWDC event is somewhat different. It’s subjective, but the actual keyword will be broadcast on large external screens for this, which is why we’re all in the sun.

I just heard someone seemingly official say we’re starting soon. Thrilling! I really hope you don’t melt in this heat.

Got some pretty badges to come! this is good.

Apple Park is a very impressive complex in Cupertino, one of Steve Job’s ultimate visions for the company. It has beautiful open spaces, inside trees and some of the biggest windows I’ve ever seen.

It is impressive.

Thanks Gareth! I’m Matt Hanson, here hoping to cover any exciting announcements for Mac, macOS, and MacBooks, and as Gareth said, I’m currently sitting in the scorching hot sun of Apple Park, Apple’s stunning California headquarters. I put on a lot of sunscreen in case anyone (especially my mom) is reading this and getting worried.

Well, now you’re done – I’m about to hand you Honorable Matt Hanson, our Managing Editor at Computing and Ents, who is currently rising in the Cupertino sun.

Thank you all, it was a blast!

Well everyone, we’re less than an hour away from the big event. The TechRadar team is up and starting to think about taking their seats…Are you ready?

Frankly, I do not understand this. Why isn’t there a Weather app on the iPad already?

While we’re talking about Twitter, here’s one from Lance Ulanoff, who will take over this live blog post today from the depths of Cupertino itself.

I can’t see the HomePod Max, Pro, or Air launching today, mostly because the HomePod Mini works well and the bigger HomePod, which was great but very expensive, didn’t work.

Getting to be one of the first to look at things and pick them up was amazing.

The Claxon Cooking Team! ️

He’s definitely awake, everyone. It is likely that he will be at the conference on time. # Journalism

iPad Pro

If you’re one of those “those” people who like to see their iPad more like a laptop, then I have good news for you: We’ll likely see it become more macOS-like this year.

This means, primarily, that you’ll be able to move and resize apps in a similar way to Windows, giving you more control over the real estate on your device.

This is an interesting move from Apple. While yes, making the iPad look like a Mac is a good thing (especially since more models have the high-end M1 chipset inside, making them similar in power) on the smaller iPad Mini display, for example, this kind of navigation can be a nightmare with Less screen space.

If that happens today, I think Apple will tweak it for different screen sizes…let’s wait and see, but it could make your iPad Pro more like a laptop than ever.

I’ve attended this Apple event for many years now, and there’s something almost comforting about the Apple Store before a big event.

What this tells us is that, again, there will be advertising affecting the products on sale today – Apple doesn’t want you to buy anything on the day only to find it upgraded within 24 hours.

This doesn’t really tell us who – which A lot — I’m sure there won’t be a new iPhone 14 at the event, but you can’t buy an iPhone 13 today — but it’s always interesting that Apple probably loses hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales in order to drive the event.

I’m a huge fan of the Apple Watch – I think it’s one of the best all-round smartwatches, but for something that’s been around for so many years, it’s sorely lacking in a professional version.

Word is we could see it at Apple’s next September event, which is going to be huge — and hopefully watchOS 9 comes with some great ideas about fitness today.

While I’m, of course, pretty fit and cool and other things, I admit there are better fitness experts out there — we got one to tell us the five things they wanted to see from watchOS 9, so go see if you agree.

Let’s keep the Bad News Bear conversation coming, shall we: it looks like it will See the new MacBook Air models today, but they wont Comes in cool new colors to get the creative juices flowing.

While I understand that Apple wants to preserve the look and feel of its MacBook range, it’s missing a trick here.

There are a lot of colors on the Mac, so it wouldn’t be a wider color palette for Apple.

The Air is definitely one of the most attractive laptops for creators who don’t need a lot of power but want to express themselves with a laptop that can slip into a bag (or an envelope, for those who remember the first ever MacBook Air…)

I suppose we should get rid of Big Bad News first: Apple’s (almost certainly) augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) headset won’t show up today (Opens in a new tab).

That’s because, according to the New York Times, battery life issues are preventing it from being market-ready, and Apple is looking to correct it.

We’re still going to see a lot about augmented reality in today’s keynote, because Apple Likes But we won’t see the devices that will finally make sense of this ongoing excitement around the augmented world.

good morning! Gareth Bevis is here, bringing you all the key news and information as we build on the big WWDC keyword.

Today has finally arrived, and the Apple event will be kicking off in person. We missed heading to Cupertino to see all the big changes that Tim Cook has revealed in person – and we’ll be there with full force.

A newly opened Apple developer center suggested refreshments – good to know.
