Apple Keynote Via Livestream – Take Part In The iPhone 8 Live Reveal

As Apple recently announced the long awaited iPhone 8 keynote is going to take place on September 12. It will be the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater in the new Apple Park in Cupertino, California. Those of us who can not be live on site – and that will be the majority – have other possibilities to easily watch the event on the home computer, iPad or iPod. Let’s talk about which devices you need and how it works:

Watch Apple event live at home

On Tuesday, September 12 at 10 am (PDT) Apple broadcasts the “Apple Special Event” on its official website. Apple uses the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology for this live stream. Watching the show should not be a problem if you own one of the following devices:

  • iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Safari among iOS 7.0 or newer
  • Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or newer among OS X 10.8.5 or newer
  • Computer with Microsoft Edge Browser among Windows 10
  • 2nd or 3rd generation of Apple TV with at least tvOS 6.2 or 4th generation of Apple TV

Livestream on Android or Windows

Don’t worry: Android users or users with older Windows versions also have the chance to take part in the live event. To do so you need the free VLC-Player which has to be downloaded for Windows or Android in advance. After successfully downloading the application Windows users start the program, click on “Media” → “Open Network Stream” and enter the direct link to the keynote. You can find the link through an easy Google search typing the keywords “keynote vlc link” right before the start of the event. Android users click on the antenna symbol in the app’s upper bar.
