Apple CEO Tim Cook in the midst of a presentation
Boy, it's been a while since Apple's last big announcement, and while the next iPhone still a few months away, today we'll get to enjoy the opening presentation of Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). What new announcements come out of this keynote varies from year to year, but more often than not, it's actually not all software. This year, for example, rumors are that in addition to our first look at iOS 11 (a giant announcement itself), we'll also get to see one or two new iPads, and maybe even Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. Check our rumor round-up for all the news that we expect
Welcome to out liveblog of the WWDC 2017 opening keynote! If you happen to prefer the video livestream of the event instead, you can find that here
. If you decide to stick around, though, what you'll find below will be a nice and laid-back coverage of the event with frequent text and image updates. A completely discreet and no-sound affair. If you're working at Google, this would be the best way to follow what 's going on at Apple's event without your co-workers ever noticing. You shouldn't worry about this anyway, they'll probably be secretly doing it too.
WWDC '17 KEYNOTE START TIME: 10 AM PT | 11 AM MT | 12 PM CT | 1 PM ET | 7 PM CET
