Apple posted a tease yesterday for the next live event on September 9th. Even as a non-OS X/iOS user, I enjoy keeping up on the latest announcements. However, usually the live streaming requires an Apple device with Safari or Apple TV. Even Safari on Windows would not work. This usually means I have to track down an Apple device to watch it.
Fortunately, with this upcoming event, the Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10 will be able to stream the keynote.
The fine print at the bottom of the Apple.com/live page reads:
Requirements: Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
By the way, when you ask Siri for a hint, you will receive a variety of canned responses:
Rumors point to Siri coming to Apple TV, along with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The venue is a 7,000 seat stage, making it larger than the Apple Watch announcement.
Hat tip to D.E. for catching the details, details on Apple’s Event page.
