How to Watch Apple’s iPhone 8 Live Event?
Apple made a commitment to live-stream this Media Event using the company’s official website. You can follow this link to visit a page where you’ll be able to watch the keynote. However, remember that the page currently shows only a short description along with the company’s logo.
As you’ll see, this Media Event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater, located in the new Apple campus. It’s interesting that Apple chose this venue, which tells us that the new iPhone might indeed be revolutionary.
The live-stream will begin on September 12, at 10 AM PDT. Here are other time zones that might be closer to you, so you know when to tune in – 1 PM ET, 6 PM GMT, 7 PM CET, and 10:30 PM IST. Here’s a handy link to an online tool that easily converts time zones.
Now let’s take a look at what you need regarding software specs:
- If you plan on watching the Media Event using your iOS device, you need to use Safari and iOS 9.0 and up;
- If you’re using a MacOS computer, you need Safari version 6.0.5 and OS X 10.11 and up;
- Windows users won’t be left out. However, they need Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge;
- Finally, Apple TV users can also count on the live-stream. They need Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with Apple TV software 6.2 or up; If you have the latest Apple TV (4th generation), you can also tune in. In fact, you can already download the Apple Events app from the App Store and prepare for the live-stream.
If you don’t have a fast Internet connection, or if you don’t have the time to watch the Media Event, you can always turn to TechNadu. We’ll be bringing the latest news about the new iPhone, as well as deeper looks at its features throughout the next couple of days.
What to Expect at The Event?
Numerous rumors regarding the all-new iPhone have been circulating for months now. While some of them are pure fantasy, lots of them seem like a viable outcome. Perhaps the biggest change is going to be a new screen that covers the entire front side of the device (except for a tiny portion at the top). We talked about this previously in more details.
An interesting tidbit regarding the new screen is Touch ID integration. It seems like Apple has finally found a way to eliminate the Home Button and integrate a fingerprint reader into the screen.
We also shouldn’t forget to mention wireless charging. This has been one of the most-requested features for years now, and it seems like Apple has finally made the call. Numerous rumors pointed out to wireless charging being included in the new iPhone. However, the company will most likely restrict this feature to approved accessories that are a part of the MFi accessory program. In other words, don’t expect cheap charging pads.
Finally, some recently revealed leaks are saying that the new iPhone will be called iPhone X. The most powerful iPhone ever built will also have the highest price ever. According to rumors, be prepared to spend around $1,200 on this device. Lucky for us, two additional models are also expected to be unveiled. These models should be a more affordable option that lacks the all-screen design. Instead, they should look like the current iPhone generation, with small tweaks.
