Here's Where (and How) to Watch Apple's Live iPhone Event

It's iPhone Day, so get your wallets ready! Apple's set to announce a trio of new iPhones, one of which, the high-end iPhone X, is rumored to cost a cool thousand dollars. There are also well-substantiated rumors of a new LTE-equipped Apple Watch. Of course, if you're not at the event being held in the brand new Steve Jobs Theater (part of the company's new futuristic Apple Park headquarters), you can keep up with the Apple news in more than a few ways.

Watch Apple's Livestream

Apple is hosting its own livestream , which begins at at 1 p.m. EST (10 a.m. PST), so you can watch the entire event from the comfort of your screen. You'll need to follow a few rules to tune in, however.

Here's what you'll need, according to Apple:

Requirements : Live streaming uses Apple's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 9.0 or later, a Mac with Safari on macOS v10.11 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).

In short, you'll need to use an Apple TV, or Safari on any Apple-branded device, and Microsoft Edge on any Windows 10 machine. If you're wondering why you'll need to use Edge instead of Safari on Windows, it's because that version of the Apple browser was last updated in 2012, and has since been discontinued. Sorry, Chrome users, but Apple's pettiness knows no bounds.
