    @ScottStein I almost want them to wait for an apple watch upgrade b/c then I'll still have the newest version. :)
  • Nicholas 6/13/2016 4:50:26 PM
    The Apple Public beta website has just gone down!
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 4:51:09 PM
  • Alex1552 6/13/2016 4:53:28 PM
    Any chance of Apple buying Tesla?
  • Wayne Harrison 6/13/2016 4:53:29 PM
    You guys forgot the word "Gorgeous" form the bingo card...!
  • Meet Shah 6/13/2016 4:53:40 PM
    How long will this keynote be ?
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 4:54:37 PM
    Siri...in a year of big AI, bots, etc, can Siri step up, be useful and better? An SDK, and could there be an Echo-like home service?
  • Liam 6/13/2016 4:54:54 PM
    What about unapologetically on the bingo card
  • HamzaJ 6/13/2016 4:56:04 PM
    Hoping Apple Pay is released worldwide.
  • Wilson 6/13/2016 4:56:11 PM
    I am super duper stoked for this event! I have been waiting for it for 3 weeks!
  • ATC 6/13/2016 4:56:12 PM
    @Meet Shah 2 hours
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 4:56:56 PM
    Music dimming...here we go...very chill
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:57:02 PM
    I've been kicked off the Wifi for the past half hour! Eep! Fingers crossed I can stay online
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:57:10 PM
    Whew ok.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 4:57:13 PM
    Wi-Fi is VERY very iffy
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:57:26 PM
    Scott Stein and I are going to be blogging and Connie Guglielmo and Rich Brown will jump in from time to time
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:57:47 PM
    The keynote is going to start soon. CEO Tim Cook will be up first (most likely anyway).
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:57:53 PM
    Cook will celebrate his fifth anniversary as CEO in August. Cook, who joined Apple in 1998 to run operations, was Steve Jobs’ hand-picked successor.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:58:05 PM
    Apple this week is hosting its Worldwide Developers Conference, when it details its newest software that will hit devices later in the year.
  • Carrie Mihalcik 6/13/2016 4:58:13 PM
    Apple's keynote is set to start at 10 a.m. PT/ 1 p.m. ET. We will shut down comments before the event starts.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:58:13 PM
    This time around, Apple’s holding its two-hour keynote at the Bill Graham Auditorium in downtown San Francisco instead of at the Moscone West Convention Center.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:58:32 PM
    Bill Graham seats a whopping 7,000 people and is typically used for concerts and other events like high school graduations. (I think all 7,000 of those people are trying to connect to the event wifi right now)
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:58:39 PM
    This is the second event Apple’s hosted at the venue. It unveiled the iPhone 6S at Bill Graham in September.
  • Scott Stein 6/13/2016 4:58:50 PM
    I'll be tweeting along at @jetscott throughout, hopping in here for iOS and Apple Watch talk when we get there. Here we go!
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 4:59:00 PM
    My guess is we're here so that Apple can have a concert of some sort. We had OneRepublic here last time, a personal favorite of Tim Cook
  • Rich Brown 6/13/2016 4:59:47 PM
    Checking in. Expecting at least some HomeKit news today. Lots of room for Apple to improve there.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:00:09 PM
    Ok. It looks like we're starting
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:00:17 PM
    Tim cook just walked out to tons of people clapping and standing up.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:00:32 PM
    You can tell where the reporters are since we're all still sitting and typing furiously.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:00:47 PM
    Cook: Before we start with the keynote, we'd like to take a moment to talk about the tragedy that occurred yesterday in Orlando.
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:00:53 PM
    We offer our deepest sympathies to everyone whose lives were touched with this violence.
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:00:54 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:01:04 PM
    Cook calls it senseless violence ... "aimed at dividing and destroying."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:01:22 PM
    "The Apple community is made up of people from all over the world, all different backgrounds, all different points of view. We celebrate our diversity."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:01:28 PM
    "We know it makes us stronger and moves everyone forward."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:01:46 PM
    "Please rise and join us in a moment of silence to honor the victims and the people who loved them," Cook says.
  • Sarah Tew 6/13/2016 5:02:21 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:02:22 PM
    "Hello and welcome to WWDC 2016. It's great to be here at the legendary Bill graham auditorium in San Francisco"
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:02:32 PM
    "Let me give you some details on the conference this year. This is our 27th WWDC"
  • Tyler Lizenby 6/13/2016 5:02:36 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:02:38 PM
    "The developer community has never been more vibrant."
  • Sarah Tew 6/13/2016 5:02:42 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:02:49 PM
    "13 million registered developers. 2 million added in the last year alone."
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:02:55 PM
    Conference sold out. Over 5,000 attendees
  • Shara Tibken 6/13/2016 5:03:06 PM
    "We have people here from over 74 countries."
