Apple is holding a media event tomorrow at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino. The tech giant is expected to announce a new video streaming service they will compete against Stan, Foxtel and Netflix.
There’s also a new news subscription service built on the bones of Texture, an app Apple acquired last year. If that’s not enough, there are rumours of a new gaming subscription service swirling about too! Here’s how to stream all the Apple announcements live from here in Australia.
Unlike most other Apple events, what we don’t expect is for there to be a hardware announcement. While Apple has been known to be a fan of “one more thing” surprises in the past, but given that we’ve seen new iPads, iMacs, and AirPods already this month the chances of us getting yet another new piece of hardware seem pretty slim.
If you didn’t score an invite to the Cupertino event you can still watch everything happen from the comfort of your home or office. Here’s how to make it happen.
Apple has announced an update to their wireless headphones, the AirPods. In a week of announcements - the iMac received a speed bump yesterday after some new iPads were announced on Tuesday - it seems Apple is clearing the desks for something big next week when they host an event that is widely tipped to be the launch of its new streaming service.Read more
Apple event start time
The event is set to kick off in California on Monday at 10am PT. For Australians, this works out to 4am (AEDT) on March 26. (Yes, it’s one of those horribly early ones. Tch.)
If you own an Apple TV you can stream the event live from the Events app. Too easy!
If you don’t own an Apple TV you can can stream the event from your web browser from Apple’s website. Apple notes that the stream is best experienced on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch running Safari iOS 10 or later or a Mac using macOS Sierra 10.12 or later. Apple notes that other platforms may also be able to access the stream using a recent version of Chrome or Safari.
