How to watch Apple's new 2018 iPhone announcement livestream

How to watch Apple's new 2018 iPhone announcement livestream
Apple will hold its biggest event for the year this Wednesday and the company is expected to unveil three new iPhones, all with the gesture interface and edge-to-edge design that we saw first in the iPhone X, and we also expect to see a new Apple Watch with a larger screen in the same physical body size.

So... how can you watch the big event that goes under the "Gather 'round" slogan this year?

First, you should know that Apple no longer restricts streaming of its events to Apple devices only, and you can also watch it from a Windows PC. Here are all the supported platforms for this livestream:

  • iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari on iOS 10 or later
  • Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later
  • PC using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge
  • Streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS
  • Other platforms (like Android and Linux) may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required)

Summing it up, you would need the Safari browser on Mac, while on Windows you would need to have Microsoft Edge. On Android, you should be able to livestream via the VLC app.

Keep in mind that the event starts on:
Wednesday, September 12th at 10 a.m. PT | 1p.m. ET

The fact they use to only allow streaming on Apple products to begin with, just shows how much of a pumpus freakazoid company they are. On tech sites and fa biys watch anyways. Every event I the same. Fear mongering the fans, lying with made up percentages and trying to make the same crap they had last year, sound better. But let's see IF they bring anything. We do the table.

Why are the speakers acting a little weird ? It's like they are rushing through the presentation. Look at Phil.... wheres the fire??
