Posted By : Anirudh Bhardwaj | 11-Sep-2017
Apple’s iPhone 8 Keynote event is just around the corner. Only few hours are left and the whole world is waiting for the event. The stage is set. Steve Jobs Theatre in Apple Park will be hosting this auspicious event that will gather thousands of visitors and tech enthusiasts from all over the world. Steve Jobs theatre has a capacity of hosting about a thousand visitors and it will be bustling with crowd. Needless to say, it’s going to be the biggest event of this year and will feature iPhone 8/ X along with the other Apple devices such as Apple Watch and 4K Apple TV. It will also feature software releases such as iOS 11, tvOS 11 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra. But it ain’t just about that. There’s something else that makes this year’s keynote event really special.
Apple has huge expectations from iPhone 8 which will be the key highlight of the event. Although Keynote 2016 has been the most successful keynote in years, it still didn’t receive the kind of treatment as was expected. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were launched with a colossal expenditure and a phenomenal ceremony. But there are certain things that didn’t entice the users pretty well which in turn, affected the sales more or less. The replacement of conventional headphone jack with a lightning port seemed useless and futile. The Airpods and Apple Watch were also criticized for their own set of cons and drawbacks. As it turns out, the last few years haven’t been that good for Apple especially since the launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Also, the company experienced a massive slump in sales last year and is still recovering from that. That’s why this year’s Keynote is supposed to be really special and Apple surely doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned this time.
How To Stream The Keynote?
The whole world is waiting for the Keynote which will be live in a few hours. Like every time, there are numerous ways to get the live coverage and stream the event on a myriad of multimedia devices. In this blog, we’ll tell you how you stream the event on your Apple powered iDevices including iPhone, Mac and Apple TV. So let’s get started!
To catch the live coverage of this year’s Keynote event, you need to have an iPhone/iPad running on iOS 6 or later. On your Apple mobile device (iPhone/iPad), launch the Safari browser and type in the url, https://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2017/ to receive the live coverage of the whole event.
For streaming the live event on your Mac, it must be running on any one of the following Operating Systems.
OS X 10.8.5 Mountain Lion
OS X 10.9 Mavericks
OS X 10.10 Yosemite
OS X 10.11 El Capitan
macOS 10.12 Sierra
Also, you must have an updated browser i.e Safari 6.0.5 or later to stream the event in real-time. Launch the Safari browser on your Mac and follow the same URL, https://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2017.
You see the procedure is pretty much the same for both iPhone/iPad and Mac devices. However, it’s a bit different when it comes to Apple TV. You’ll find an Apple Events icon on the home screen of Apple TV. Select this icon using Siri TV remote and stream the live event as it happens. Also, make sure you have at least a second generation Apple TV running on tvOS 6.2 or later.
So, that’s all for now. Windows users can also stream the live event but that would require them to have Windows 10 with edge browser. The procedure is exactly the same but the url won’t be working on the older versions of the Windows. Happy Streaming!
