Apple will be launching its upcoming flagship smartphone(s) of the year in less than 10 hours. The Tim Cook & Co. is being also said to introduce the next-generation Apple TV and Apple Watch. This time the Cupertino-based tech firm is reportedly planning to launch three new iPhone handsets namely the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. Apple has not yet confirmed the names, features or even the existence of these devices.
While Apple has already sent media invitations to publications earlier this month, there are several million fans who too wish to see the unveiling of the new iPhone handsets. So those who are not attending the event in person here’s how you can live stream the iPhone X launch.
Apple iPhone X/iPhone 8 launch live stream on iOS:
Watching the live stream of any Apple event is the easiest for iOS users. Today, they can use their iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices to view the iPhone X launch. Apple has been using its HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology to stream the event. This tech is compatible with devices with Safari 9.0 and later browser versions.
Apple iPhone X/iPhone 8 launch live stream on macOS:
Apple MacBook users can also view the launch live stream but not with the same version of Safari as mentioned for the iOS users. The macOS need to run Safari 10.11 or later version to stream the event.
Apple iPhone X/iPhone 8 launch live stream on Apple TV:
Apple TV users too can view the iPhone 8 launch live only if they meet certain requirements. They would need to have Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later to watch the live stream. Those with Apple TV (4th generation) can also watch it.
Apple iPhone X/iPhone 8 launch live stream on Windows OS:
Yes, it is possible. Microsoft Windows PC and laptop users can also watch the Apple iPhone 8 launch live. However, not any Windows users can see it. They will require Microsoft Edge browser to do so. The browser is only available in Windows 10.
Unfortunately, Apple has allowed no Android or Chrome OS device to run the Apple iPhone 8 launch live stream. Until unless someone unofficially streams the event live on YouTube or Facebook from the site itself, there is no official way of watching the event.
