Apple fans, the day you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. Apple’s massive Worldwide Developer Conference keynote is second-biggest event for Apple each year, with the first obviously being the annual unveiling of Apple’s new iPhones. Of course, seeing the software that will power Apple’s new iPhones is almost as exciting, and iOS 9 will be unveiled on stage today during Apple’s big WWDC 2015 keynote.
Live blogs are a nice way to follow along with the show, but why bother when you can watch live streaming video from Apple’s WWDC 2015 keynote?

We’re now mere minutes away from seeing WWDC 2015 kick off, and reports leading up to today’s keynote suggest it’ll be an action-packed one indeed. Beyond iOS 9, which is expected to include plenty of new features and, perhaps more importantly, a tremendous amount of refinement, Apple is also expected to unveil a brand new streaming music service that will be the foundation for the future of Apple’s music business.
Apple Music is expected to take several key features from the Beats Music service Apple acquired along with the rest of Beats’ assets, and it will also add in some smart new features as well as live radio stations feature big-name acts like Pharrell and David Guetta.
Beyond that, we can expect to see a new version of OS X, new additions to Apple Pay that may include a rewards program, and an updated SDK for the Apple Watch that will let developers take their Watch apps to the next level.
