As it has done in years past, Apple will present live streaming coverage of the Worldwide Developers Conference 2018 keynote event, offering those unable to attend a glimpse at this year's upcoming software platform updates.

Announced in an update to its official WWDC 2018 webpage on Tuesday, the livestream is slated begin at 10 a.m. on June 4. So far, the company has only confirmed web access to the stream, though other formats like Apple TV will likely be announced in the days leading up to the event.

Developers and users interested in seeing what Apple has in store for 2018 can tune into the live broadcast via an embedded player to be made available on the company's events website. Apple recommends viewing on an iOS device running iOS 10 or later, a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later, or a PC running Microsoft Edge in Windows 10.

Apple earlier today sent out invitations to the keynote event where company executives are expected to detail new iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS features. Following the kickoff at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, developers will be able to take part in more than 100 learning sessions presented by Apple engineers, hands-on labs and special talks.

While not confirmed, Apple could use the keynote event as an opportunity to launch new hardware. Rumors leading up to next month's convention suggest a redesigned iPad Pro with TrueDepth camera and Face ID could be ripe for unveiling. It was at WWDC 2017 that the company revealed the current iPad Pro line.

Other rumblings point to the release of a MacBook Pro refresh, an updated "iPhone SE 2" handset and low-cost HomePod.

AppleInsider will be providing live, on-the-scene coverage of WWDC 2018 from June 4.
