WWDC 2019 lasts for a week, but all the big announcements are condensed into a two-hour keynote speech at the start. Tonight, Monday 3 June 2019 (starting at 10am California time, or 6pm UK time), Apple will unveil its plans for the next versions of iOS and macOS, and we also expect to find out more about the new Mac Pro and a new Apple Display.
Apple will livestream the keynote presentation so anyone can watch.
