Apple event live streaming on Windows 10, too

Just so long as you’ve got a Windows 10 PC with Edge, Apple will allow their event to be streamed to you. Apple announced this morning that their next big event will be taking place on September 9th at 10AM Pacific Time, and that they’d be streaming said event. Generally this sort of Apple-only stream requires that you own an Apple device to watch. With this event, Apple drops said requirement in favor of Edge technology on PC’s running Windows 10. Could this be a sign of collaborative efforts in the near future?

More likely it’s an effort to engage with Windows 10 users who also want to join in on the Apple product sphere in the near future. Otherwise we’d have to guess that this update has to do with Apple TV somehow or another, aiming to draw in Windows 10 users that’d otherwise not want an Apple product unless it was really, really well integrated with their PC.

Apple will be streaming this event with Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), which otherwise requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 7.0 or later. Also able to make use of the stream are Mac computers with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X version 10.8.5 or later.

Users may also stream the Apple event through Apple’s live site with an Apple TV device, just so long as its 2nd or 3rd-generation with software 6.2 or later. Stick around [SlashGear’s Apple hub] as we break down all the information for you from on-site as the event happens. We’ll also have hands-on features soon after the event is done!
