Apple’s “See you on the 7th” special event starts in just over 24 hours from now at 10:00 a.m. PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) or 10:45 p.m. IST (Indian Standard Time) at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco.
Apple has stated that it will be live streaming the event, where it will launch the most anticipated next generation iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, brand new MacBook and Apple Watch 2. Here’s how to watch Apple iPhone 7 launch event live on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, Windows or Android device.
Basic Requirements To Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event:
Live streaming uses Apple’s HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) technology, which requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with Safari web browser on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later running on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Whereas, streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV 2 or Apple TV 3 with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).
How To Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event Live Streaming
If you guys need help, then you can simply follow the below-mentioned instructions to watch Apple’s September 7 event live on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Windows PC and Android devices.
Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event Live on iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch
If you plan to watch the launch event on your iPhone or iPad, then simply open the below link on mobile Safari browser – http://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2016/
Note: Make sure you are running iOS 7 or later.
Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event Live on Mac
Mac users will be able to watch the launch event live streaming just by visiting Apple’s September 2016 special event page. The only requirement here is that you must have to use Apple’s Safari Web Browser to watch it; Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and others don not work with Apple live streams.
Note: Make sure your Mac is running OS X 10.8.5 or later.
Watch Apple IPhone 7 Launch Event Live on Apple TV 4
If you own the new Apple TV (4th Generation), then you can watch the live streaming of the special event by downloading the Apple Events app from the tvOS App Store for free of cost if you haven’t done so already.
Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event on Apple TV 3 and Apple TV 2
IF you own the Apple TV 3 or Apple TV 2, then simply navigate to “Apple Events” with the ‘Let us loop you in’ event logo on the main menu to watch the launch event live on your television.
Note: Make sure your device is running on Apple TV Software 5.0.2 or later.
Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event Live on Windows 10
Windows users can also live stream the event on their PC officially and view it as quickly as the Mac users. Apple has made live streaming of its events accessible from Microsoft’s latest Edge browser, which comes with Windows 10. So, the Windows users need to head over to the same Apple’s September 2016 event page to get a live glimpse of the iPhone 7 launch event.
Watch Apple iPhone 7 Launch Event Live on Android / Windows 8.1 or lower
Now things get a little bit complicated. Microsoft Windows 10 users can look at the broadcast via Edge web browser, but those on older versions of Windows needs to get creative and use a tricky method. Just follow the below steps:
- Install the latest version of VLC Media Player, which you can download for free of cost from here.
- Now get the network URL of the live stream. (Note: The URL is not available yet, and we’ll only be able to get that after the launch event begins. So, stay tuned to get it.)
- Paste the URL in the “Open Network Stream” option of your media player to start watching the special event.
This workaround is also applicable for Android and Linux users.
