An "Apple Events" channel was quietly added to users' Apple TV main screens on Monday, along with a link on Apple's official website, revealing the company plans to allow members of the public to view a live stream of today's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote.

The temporary channel and a link on the main page of Apple's website both indicate that today's event, which will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Pacific, will be available to stream online.

The highlight of today's WWDC 2013 keynote is expected to be iOS 7, Apple's next-generation mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad. The company is also planning to show off OS X 10.9, the next major release for its Mac operating system.

Also likely on tap for today are new Macs, with a refresh of Apple's MacBook Air lineup the most likely candidate. The new notebooks are expected to receive Intel's latest-generation Haswell processors, as well as new dual microphones that will aid in voice recognition.

The Apple TV Events channel previously appeared in October of last year ahead of Apple's iPad mini event. In addition to the Apple TV, the keynote presentation was also viewable on Mac and iOS devices.
