Apple To Livestream Today's Event To Apple Devices Only [UPDATE]

Look at Apple. Isn’t it so cute that they finally discovered the joys of livestreaming? Or rather rediscovered it as they used to stream their conferences way back when. But anyway, just like for the last event, Apple will be streaming today’s festivities to compatible iOS devices and Macs running 10.6 Snow Leopard starting at 10:00 a.m. PDT today. PC users will be stuck watching some random stream transcoded from the official Apple one because clearly there aren’t any PC users curious about purchasing new Apple products. Stay classy, Apple.

UPDATE: Thanks to some of our wonderful commenters, we now have a tutorial on how to watch the livestream on any computer.

Compatible devices

  • OX 10.6 Mac running Safari
  • iPhone running iOS 3.0
  • iPod touch running iOS 3.0
  • iPad
