How to watch today’s Apple event live

Apple will likely unveil modestly new iPads and perhaps a new iMac today at an event in California. Here’s how to tune in:

  • Apple will once again live stream video from the event. It is already advertising the live stream link, which can be accessed from the homepage at
  • The event is scheduled to begin at 10am Pacific time, 1pm Eastern time, 6pm London time, and 1am Hong Kong time.
  • There’s a catch: Apple’s live stream requires semi-recent Apple technology. As its site explains, “Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.”
  • The stream isn’t always reliable. Last month, there were widespread video problems for Apple’s iPhone/Watch event, including a Chinese-translation audio feed for several minutes. As this event doesn’t seem nearly as exciting, perhaps the stream will work better.
  • If you can’t watch the live stream—or don’t have the bandwidth—many tech news sites provide elaborate live blogs, including photographs. The Verge and Recode usually do a good job.
