This year there's a host of ways to follow tomorrows opening to the week long event.

This will be the very first WWDC Opening Keynote to be broadcast live in 4K via the Apple Developer app and the Apple TV app (now live within Watch Now) or in HD via YouTube.

There are also options for those who prefer to watch in Mandarin or Cantonese via iQIYI (multiple language support) and Bilibili (Mandarine).

Fun fact: Since the introduction of tvOS in 2015 the Apple TV software has had as little time as 2 mins in 2017 and a record of 11 mins stage time the following year.
