The euphoria around the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is reaching the peak. Earlier this week, Apple sent out invites for its September 7 media event where the company would unveil its new hardware products, including the iPhone 7. The press event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET) on Wednesday, September 7 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
Apple and Windows 10 users both can watch the live stream
If you can’t attend the event, Apple will live stream it and you can watch it from the comfort of your home or office. Apple uses HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology to stream the show. It locks down certain hardware and software, which means it won’t be compatible with all the devices out there. You’ll need an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 7.0 or later to watch the live stream. Go to this link using the built-in Safari browser to watch the keynote live on September 7th at 10 a.m. PT.
Mac users will also be able to watch the live stream if they have Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later. Want to stream the event on Apple TV? Make sure that you have the second or third-generation Apple TV with software versions 6.2 or later. You are equally good to go if you have the 4th generation Apple TV.
Apple is also showing some love to PC users. If your PC runs Windows 10, you can watch the live stream using Microsoft’s Edge browser.
Will Apple live tweet the iPhone 7 event?
Apple’s recent activities on Twitter have fueled speculations that the tech giant will finally up the Twitter game and live tweet the September 7 event. Apple’s Twitter account @Apple has been around since September 2011, though it has never tweeted anything. Apple has been active on the microblogging site through its product-specific handles such as @AppStore, @AppleMusic, and @AppStoreES.
In the last few days, the company has updated the @Apple account with a new background photo and a company profile image ahead of the iPhone 7 event. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg believes that Apple will live tweet the event. Even though Apple has never tweeted from its central account, it has garnered 156,000 followers at the time of writing.
