iPhone 7 special event

Watch Apple unveil the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 on your Mac, iPhone, or Apple TV.

Tomorrow, Apple will be hosting a special media event where they are expected to reveal the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2. Despite the similarity of the devices to their predecessors, this special event will not be an event you will want to miss. The event, as confirmed by Apple, will be live-streamed. The fun starts at 10am PDT (or 1pm for those of us on the East Coast) and ends roughly two hours later. Here is how to watch the iPhone 7 special event:

Mac/PC

To watch the event on your Mac or PC, please go to www.apple.com/live. For your Mac, it must be running at least OS X 10.8.5 with Safari 6.0.5 or later. On your PC, you must be using Microsoft Edge with Windows 10. Any other software may not be compatible with Apple’s live streaming.

 

iPad, iPhone, iPod touch

To stream the event on your iOS device, please visit www.apple.com/live. Your device is required to be running at least iOS 7. This is a slight change from the WWDC Keynote which worked on older devices running iOS 6. To see what software you have on your device, go to the Settings app, General, and About. The number next to Version should be at least by 7.0, and if so, you are all set to stream.

 

Apple TV

There is a special dedicated channel on the Apple TV called “Apple Events” that will stream the keynote when the time is ready. If your Apple TV is a 2nd or 3rd generation, it is required to be running software at least 6.2. If you have the 4th generation Apple TV, any software version will stream the event.

 

Android or any other non-Apple devices

Unfortunately, this year’s September special media event will only be streamed on Apple products with the exception of the PC. If you have an Android device and still want to catch the announcements, you can view live blogs from those in attendance or watch your Twitter feed. Using Twitter is usually the best since pictures are posted immediately and from several angles when Apple announces something new.

Today’s special media event will start at 10am PDT at the Flint Center for Performing Arts in Cupertino, California.  If you are not one of the lucky people who will be in attendance at the event, there are many other places you can watch it live.

Apple will be live streaming the event on their website.  If you have an iPod, iPad or iPhone, you can access the live stream via iTunes or by going on the Apple website.  You can also watch the event on your computer. Safari is the other web browser that will be allowed to watch the event.  If you are trying to use Firefox, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer; those will not work.  The event will also be available on the Apple TV (second- and third-generation only).

As usual, the company has been highly secretive about what they plan to show at their event.  The only words on the invitation say “we wish we could say more.” Rumors highly suggest that Apple will announce a completely redesigned iPhone with two larger-sized displays, their first wearable product (likely called the “iWatch”), a new mobile payment system and according to a popular analyst, the iPad Air 2 as well. We will also find out the release date for iOS 8.

We will not be in attendance at this event, but shortly afterwards, we will post a full recap of it.
