How to livestream Apple's September 9 keynote on any platform (iOS, OS X, Windows, Android)

Just as we told you a while ago, this September 9, Apple is going to hold a keynote event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Naturally, when one of the leading companies in the business announces its plans to host an event of this caliber, it attracts lots of attention, and in the case of Apple this is truer than ever. 

"Hey, Siri, give us a hint," says the tagline of the scheduled event, but we certainly need no hints whatsoever on what to expect, do we? As usual, Apple's September event will be all about iPhones, the final releases of iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, and... One more thing, hopefully! Last year, this was the initial appearance of the Apple Watch; who knows, Apple might show the second generation of the wearable next week. 

Naturally, the stars of the show will be the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, improved versions of last year's bestselling iOS-powered smartphones. We seem to know what the highlights of the 6s and 6s Plus will be, but this doesn't mean we won't watch them get unveiled by Tim Cook and Craig Federighi on stage. 

The keynote will kick off at 10:00 PDT | 11:00 MDT | 12:00 CDT | 13:00 EDT | 19:00 CET/CEST | 20:00 EET/EEST. Here's how to watch it live.

How to watch the event on an Apple device

1. As usual, you will be able to stream the event on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch that run iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

2. If you're rocking an iPhone, iPad, or an iPod Touch, you have to head to the App Store and grab the official Apple WWDC app. Thanks to it, you will be able to watch the event once it starts, as well as all previous Apple keynotes, including the announcement of the first iPhone from 2007.

3. If you're on a Mac or an Apple TV, you need to navigate to in your Safari browser, where you'll be able to stream the event. Of course, if you're not keen on getting the WWDC app, you can open the link on your iPhone or iPad's Safari browsers.

How to watch the event on a Windows 10 PC

1. For the first time, Apple is allowing Windows users to also stream the keynote. You will need a PC with Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge in order to watch the live stream. This is possible due to Microsoft's decision to rig the Edge browser with support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology.

2. Open up your Microsoft Edge browser and go to

How to watch the event on a non-Windows 10 PC

1. If you're still swearing by an older version of Windows, like Win 8, 7, Vista or the archaic XP, you will have a harder time tuning in with Tim Cook & Co. 

2. Although it's not certain it will work, you might try to use VLC Media Player's Network Streaming feature. Tap the Media menu on top, hit the Network tab, and paste the URL right below. That's the internal URL that Apple TV uses to stream keynotes and events. You can also hit the below link, save it, and open it with VLC.

How to watch the event on an Android device

1. You can try getting the VLC app for Android, which also comes with a network streaming feature, and use it to open the URL link we provided above. 

2. You can also try getting the Ustream app hoping that someone will be streaming the event in a borderline-legal way, of sorts.

Tim Cook and company come on stage to over use "magical" and "amazing" for the dumbest of features and oh yes, "one more thing". You can watch it and be "overwhelmed" by their fake enthusiasm. I won't

So if what they are and what they do: run the most successful company in the world and build one of the most popular products in the world equals just a dumb and dumber --- what does that make you? What have you done in your life that's better? And I honestly doubt anyone would want to be in your position.

Apple is a tech company that cant afford a live free streaming like YouTube. Only if you have their product you can watch the already crpplied stream.

Give the bashing a break and be happy with the product you currently own.

It's just trolls on iDrug. Ignore them.

Main changes are 2GB RAM and 12/5 mp camera. Force touch and the rest will be sort of gimmicks. BTW didn't HTC China recently confirm that they will release a new phone (A9) at September 6?? It's already 9:30pm in china and I don't see any news about that.

I wonder if they will increase the battery size since it's thicker now.

Won't stop you from being a wall hugger for sure though...that'll cut the demand to throw more cash at them battery cases and we know Apple is all about maximizing profit.

If Apple would want to force you to buy a battery case, they wouldn't include a battery at all in their phones... But wait, such phone wouldn't sell so nobody would buy a battery case for it anyway. Your statement makes no sense.

That's the extremist case only. Realistically, if they wanted to force you to buy a battery case, they'll sell you devices with poor battery life, which is exactly what they're doing now ( too hard for your head to grasp?

Apple doesn't make battery cases...

No, they make profit off of all certified iDevice accessories, including battery cases...

31. AlikMalix unregistered

Yep you cracked the mistrust of apples success. Risk destroying great experience that builds awesome customer retention year over year to make crummy licensing profit from 3rd party battery cases! Dude, stop imbarrasing yourself....

Right, wall hugging is a great experience for you...enjoy it.

33. AlikMalix unregistered

Right, and a competitors commercial is something that should be taken as truth. The fact that I see no more iphone users charge their phones as I do android users. I charge once overnight, unless I'm hanging at home playing games or media all day long, then I gotta plug it in sometime in afternoon to top off the battery, that's the same for everyone... If Samsung commercial is a bible to you - I suggest you stop worrying about Apple and seek someone who can steer you toward reality outside infomercials... Good Luck

I've experienced it for over 5 years with jailbroken iPhones, and latest benchmarks still concur with my experience (, remain in denial all you want, take the red pill whenever you're ready. All I know is no more need to be a wall-hugger just to make my SmartPhone work/look the way I want after getting the OnePlus One...

Well, all companies are about profit. If you don't make money, you don't survive.

Big time bro. This phone is friggin awesome. I'm still super curious about the iPhone 6S too.

I'm probably getting mine Tuesday and I can't wait. My S6 has treated me well, but I need the extra battery life.

I sold my S6 Edge on the strength that the S6 Edge Plus was real, then got swept up by the Note 5 lol. You'll love it.

Are you planning to get the 6+, or does it need to meet certain criteria? I've found so many practical uses for the S-Pen as far as fitting it's features into my daily life. It's a great thing to have. My wife has the white model and lives it as well.

It needs to have the multitasking features, bigger battery, more megapixels for the camera, and some type of fast charging. 2GB of RAM or more is a must.

Sadly I've been hearing more info that multitasking won't come to it. That's the real deal breaker for me. I think the ram 12/5mp cameras, and force touch are in. I'm not so sure about the bigger battery. I've always gotten solid battery life with mine though.

The Plus battery life is pretty good. The regular 6 is below average. If multitasking doesn't come to the iPhone 6S, then I'll just wait for the 7.

Greed varies, if you haven't noticed all these years. You see a product that costs say $200 to build selling for $350, and another $200 product selling for $800 without offering anything to justify the price tag, besides the branding. I wouldn't call the first a greedy company, that's simply making a slight profit. The second, now that's extremely greedy, as is Apple. Turning a blind eye to all of them and thinking "they're making profit so they're greedy" is just ignoramus.
