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:
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.
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.
