We meet again. You cannot escape the Apple product madness.
Today, Thursday October 27, Apple is putting on its fourth product showcase this year. This time, MacBooks are rumored to be taking center stage. The event is at the company’s campus in Cupertino and starts at 10am PDT or 1pm EDT. Tune in to see what Apple has to offer.
Watch It Live
Like usual, Apple will streaming directly on its website. So if you want to follow all the Apple goodness, watch live with the rest of the world.
But make sure your software and hardware are up to date to handle all of this. Watching on a computer or laptop? The stream will only work on Safari 5.1.10 or later, and the browser must be running on Mac OS X 10.6.8 onward. Sorry all of you Google Chrome lovers. We don’t make the rules, but the stream sometimes does work on Chrome. If you’re on a Windows 10 PC, you can view the stream in the Edge browser.
If your chillaxing on your couch at home or work, you can watch the event on your second or third generation Apple TV, as long as it’s running OS version 6.2 or later. Unless you have the newest Apple TV, then you shouldn’t have any problems. Just go to your home screen where the Apple Events channel should appear.
So you are not on a computer and don’t have an Apple TV. Not a problem; watch from your mobile. Obviously, flip phones can’t handle the stream, but as long as you have an iOS device running iOS 7.0 or newer, the stream should run perfectly fine. Whether you are on a bus or in class, the Apple event is reachable almost anywhere.
Tweets about Apple will be flying all over tomorrow. If you can’t watch then just follow the hashtag Apple Event to see what the world is saying. Famous people usually chime in too.
Missing Out on the Party
You’re super-busy either sleeping or working too hard. Don’t sweat it. Apple will record and publish the entire event on the Apple Events page. Here you can catch anything you missed and even watch older events (sounds like a party). You can watch it on your own time, so you’re not pressured to hurry to a screen.
We Will Be There
