So the big day is upon us, with Apple currently making the final preparations ahead of its huge annual September Event.
New iPhones are are on the cards today, and though we’ve seen plenty of rumors, as ever nobody really knows for sure what will be revealed until we hear it direct from the source.
It’s also pretty likely we’ll see a new version of the Apple Watch, and updates on Apple’s upcoming TV+ and Arcade subscription services.
Lots to dig into, and that’s not even taking into consideration the possibility that Apple could have a surprise or two in store for us. Is there a reason the event was teased with the “by innovation only” tagline?
The event kicks off today (Sept 10) at 10am in Cupertino, California. That equates to 1pm on the east coast and 6pm in the UK – at the time of posting that’s just a few short hours away.
So, what’s the best way to keep abreast of today’s announcements?
Watch the keynote live
The event will be streamed live on Apple’s website, and if you want to see all the announcements in their full glory there’s no better way than watching the entire thing online.
You can watch on an iPhone or iPad via apple.com/apple-events or go to that same web address on your computer. The stream is only compatible with Safari, though, so if you usually use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox you’ll need to make a change. Similarly, those with Windows PCs can access the stream but only using the Microsoft Edge browser.
If you have an Apple TV, it’s even easier – just search for the Apple Events app in the App Store. It’s a free download and will take you straight into the stream as soon as it’s live.
Whichever method you choose, the full event is likely to last around two hours and will be filled with presentations, promo videos, tech demos, and special guests. Apple has more products and services under its belt than ever, so prepare for a densely packed event!
Wait for our keynote recap
Not everyone wants to sit through a two-hour technical presentation just to find out if they should buy a new phone or not. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing unfold live, or you won’t get the chance, we’ve got you covered.
Your second choice is to ignore the keynote and get on with your life. Chill out, forget about it, and let us do the hard keynote-watching work for you. We’ll be posting a recap later today to let you know all the biggest reveals of the event.
We’ll follow that up with even more detailed analysis of every announcement through the rest of the week.
So sit back, relax, and make sure you have notifications turned on so we can alert you as soon as the information is available. Don’t touch that dial!
