Tuesday, September 10, 2019, is the day Apple is launching its 2019 model of the iPhone series. The iPhone 11 launch is among the most anticipated events in the tech world as everyone is waiting to see what one of the most valuable tech companies has to offer in its new devices.
Features expected in the iPhone 11 could be many but the most talked about is the triple rear camera system. The rear camera bump on the renders we saw doesn’t really reflect the Apple company that’s has been particular about sleek designs in the past.
That is why probably why everyone is talking about it. Other features expected include default wireless charging, upgraded Face ID system (perhaps, a next-generation version), and a 6.1” screen having a 4GB RAM capacity.
We also expect the new iPhone to adopt the USB-C technology for traditional charging as it noted to charge devices faster than Apple’s Lightning connector.
Alright, so where and how can people stream the iPhone 11 launch, for free, of course? In recent years, Apple has been widening the streaming options for its major iPhone events.
In 2015, it brought the live stream of the event to Windows-based machines. That was the first time Windows users were having the opportunity to stream Apple’s iPhone event. This was basically for Windows 10 users as Microsoft had implemented Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming technology (HLS) technology, a protocol Apple has in its devices and programs that lets users live to stream.
Just last year, Apple added another streaming channel — its Twitter page that doesn’t do anything aside running paid ads. This year, the company has added another channel — YouTube!
So let’s see where and how you can stream the next iPhone’s outdooring.
“This stream is best experienced on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari on iOS 10 or later; a Mac using Safari on macOS Sierra 10.12 or later; or a PC using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge. Streaming to Apple TV via AirPlay requires an Apple TV (2nd generation or later) with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS. Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required).”
How to stream the iPhone 11 launch
Let’s start from the newly added channel. The YouTube channel. Apple just confirmed that this years’ iPhone event will stream live via the Apple Channel on YouTube. There you go, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=996wliAI_y4. That’s the link to the channel.
The next is the Edge browser on Windows 10 computers. Since Microsoft has integrated the HLS tech in the Edge browser, users would just have to head over to www.Apple.co/live or https://www.apple.com/apple-events/livestream/.
For people using Mac computers (running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later), just launch Safari and head over to the same https://www.apple.com/apple-events/livestream/.
Chrome browser users are not left out. You can also hit the same URL and stream the event. The Chrome method is for Windows users.
For the Linux geeks, you can fall on your Firefox browser.
Let’s drop to the smaller screens now. The iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touches. For such users, the device must be running iOS 10.0 or later to enjoy the event too.
Not forgetting about Apple’s Twitter page. The iPhone 11 launch will be streaming there also. If you don’t have any of the above-mentioned devices or software but have a YouTube-supported device, you can still stream the event. Just hit this link.
The event will take place at exactly 5 PM in Ghana, which is 10 AM at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, California (where the event is happening).
