Apple is set to unveil new products and software updates at the spring event from Cupertino. The computer giant is expected to reveal a brand new 4-inch iPhone, a new iPad that may drop the “Air” branding in favor of “Pro”, and we’re not expecting to see a new Apple Watch, but we’ll see new bands.
Apple will also introduce a number of software updates, including iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, OS X 10.11.4, and tvOS 9.2.
The event will kick off at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT, and as always anyone not able to attend in person can watch the live stream at Apple’s website to stay in the loop on all the announcements.
As usual, Apple being Apple, there are some restrictions on how to watch Tim Cook’s keynote. The streaming will be available for devices running Mac OS X version 10.8.5 with Safari 6.0.5 or better, iOS 7 or better, and Apple TV 6.2 or better.
If you don’t own an Apple device or a Windows 10 device, you’re still not completely out of luck. For example, on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, one thing you could do is to change your web browser user agent settings. You can download the User Agent Switcher add-on for Mozilla Firefox and the User-Agent Switcher extension for Google Chrome to trick Apple’s event site that you’re using Safari.
You can also use the VLC player available for Windows, Mac, Android, and Linux. Follow these steps:
Download and install the VLC player, if you don’t have it already. However chances are you already have it installed as it’s one of the best media players out there.
From the menu click Media and select Open Network Stream.
Paste this VLC link for Apple’s keynote March 2016:
You’ll notice an “Unable to open the MRU file…” until the Apple live stream starts.
Remember that Apple event streams are known to have technical issues all the time, as such it’s always a good strategy to set up the stream minutes before the event to get experience.
