In case you fell out of the loop, Apple's WWDC 2013 developer conference kicks off on Monday at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco.

And as a rare treat, the maker of shiny rectangles is today streaming the keynote speech live, given by Apple chief executive Tim Cook and other senior Apple executives.

Ahead of a bevy of expected software, service and hardware announcements, including iOS 7 and OS X 10.9, the company said in a statement today that it will stream the WWDC 2013 keynote live at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET; 6 p.m. BST) to existing Apple users. 

So, if you're around to watch the hour-long session, users must watch the stream online with Safari on iPhones and iPads running iOS 4.2 or later, Safari 4 or later on OS X 10.6 or later, or on an Apple TV (second, third generation) set-top box with software 5.0.2 installed or later.

Viewers can also watch the Apple event live online from supported devices.

But, if you're at work or away from the screens, you can keep up to date with ZDNet throughout the morning and the afternoon, wherever you are. 

We'll bring you the latest and breaking news throughout the day. You can check the @ZDNet Twitter stream for news as it happens, or check out our Apple section. You can also read our sister site CNET's live blog
