Finally, Apple officially invites press and media to their event on September 12, identical to previous rumor. In the event, it is expected to launch the new generation iPhones, 4K Apple TV (rumored) and the HomePod. Of course, like previous Apple’s events, this event will also be live streamed. But, how and where can you watch it?
Requirements: …HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).
Apple uses HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) to live stream its events. Not all devices and web browsers support this live streaming protocol.
Most Apple devices will be able to watch the live stream out of the box. iOS devices with iOS 7.0 or up, including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, can watch using Safari. Mac computers will need to have the macOS updated to OS X v10.8.5 or higher before watching the live stream using Safari. Apple TVs are also supported, but older generations (2nd & 3rd gen) will need to update the software to version 6.2.
For quite a long time, PC users will not be able to watch the HLS live streams. This situation changed when Microsoft released Windows 10 along with its new Edge web browser, which supports HLS protocol. You can now use Microsoft Edge the live streams of Apple’s events on a PC. However, other popular web browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, are still not supported.
If you do not have a compatible device on hand, you can stay up-to-date with the event by reading our Liveblog on September 12, which will be constantly updating. Stay tuned!
