The Apple event where the company will launch the 2018 iPhone models is set to kick off in a few hours. The iPhone manufacturer is likely to launch three new iPhone variants at the launch event that was scheduled for September 12 at Steve Jobs Theater at its Apple Park campus in Cupertino. While Apple has not shared any details about the products that will be unveiled at the event, it is expected that the company will showcase the 2018 iPhone lineup in all its glory alongside the Apple Watch Series 4. Like every year, Apple will live stream the iPhone launch event across the world, and if you have an iPhone, Mac, iPad, Windows 10 device, you will be able to watch it live. Notably, the Apple event live stream starts at 10am PDT (10:30pm IST or 5pm GMT) and here's how you can watch the iPhone launch online.
You can watch the iPhone launch live stream online by heading to the Apple website. It is worth noting that the live stream of the event will be available to watch on select devices only. Apple says that the iPhone launch event live stream "is best experienced" on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari browser on iOS 10 or later and a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later. Meanwhile, streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS.
In case you do not have an Apple device, you can still watch the iPhone launch event live steam on your Windows 10 PC by using Microsoft's Edge Web browser. Also, other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required).
