How to watch Apple’s live stream keynote at 1PM ET / 10AM PT

Apple live stream event for September 9, 2014

The most anticipated day for Apple fans finally arrived, the company today is hosting a new media event in which many people expect the new iPhone 6 and the longtime waited iWatch to be finally announced.

Apple has already hand-picked who will be attending the media event later today at 1pm ET / 10am PT, but for everyone else that didn’t get an invite, the company will offer a live stream, but there is a catch…

The catch is that the live stream requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later. Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. To watch the event on Apple TV, users are required to have the second- or third-gen of the device with software 6.2 or later.

As you can see, Apple isn’t showing any love for Windows users, previous events only required for Windows users to install QuickTime 7 or later, but not today. Though, if you have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod, you can still watch there.

Thank you Apple…

Update: Do you want to watch Apple’s keynote in Windows? Apparently you can with a little workaround posted in Reddit that claims you should install VLC:

An easy workaround is this:

You are all set and ready to watch the Live Stream tomorrow

The actual link you need to paste into VLC will obviously be different and will be live tomorrow. Check back tomorrow for the real live stream link and you can watch the stream on your Windows device.
