Here’s a full rundown of everything we expect Apple will announce at this event, and what you shouldn’t count on.

It’s incredibly easy to watch the September Apple Event live stream on a Mac and even on Windows. It’s a little more complicated on Android and older versions of Windows, but we have your back covered there as well.

Here's how and when to watch the September 2017 Apple Event where you should see the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

You can watch the September 2017 Apple Event live on a Mac running OS X El Capitan or higher. You will need to visit the Apple Special event page in Safari for this to work. You can also watch on your iPhone or iPad using Safari to live stream the iPhone X announcement as long as you are on iOS 9 or higher. With Windows 10 you can watch in Edge and you can also tune in using the Special Events app on the Apple TV. IF you are on any of these devices, click here to watch.

The iPhone X and iPhone 8 event starts at 10 AM Pacific, or 1 PM Eastern. Here’s a closer look at when the September 2017 Apple event starts in your time zone.

  • 08:00AM – Hawaii
  • 10:00AM – Pacific
  • 11:00AM – Mountain
  • 12:00PM – Central

  • 02:00PM – São Paulo
  • 06:00PM – London
  • 07:00PM – Paris
  • 09:00PM – Moscow

We suggest opening up the special event app or the iPhone 8 event live stream in your browser about 15 minutes early, to make sure everything is working. You should see a crowd in a theater and hear music playing in the lead up to the event.

The only real catch to watching the September 2017 Apple event live is that if you are using an older version of Windows, or using Android, you will need to use VLC player to watch. This is a free app for Android or Windows. We expect to find a special link that will stream the event to the VLC player as the event starts, once we know this we will share it here and you can use these steps to start watching.

  1. Open VLC Player.
  2. Click on Media in the Task Bar at the top of your screen.
  3. Click on Open Network Stream.
  4. Paste the URL above in the box.
  5. Click Play.
  6. Watch the iPhone 8 event live stream on Windows.

We expect to see the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, a new Apple Watch 3 with LTE and a plethora of other Apple products including more on iOS 11 features and an iOS 11 release date as well as the macOS High Sierra release date.

iOS 11 vs iOS 10: What’s New in iOS 11

iOS 11 iMessage Upgrades

iOS 11 iMessage Upgrades

iMessages continue to be one of the biggest iPhone and iPad features that Apple offers. In fact, it's a major reason we don't switch from the iPhone to Android. Apple ramps up the options in the iOS 11 update with tweaks and new features for iMessages. 

There is a new iMessage App Drawer so that it is easier to find the apps you want while you are in an iMessage conversation. This means you can use the iMessage apps to send stickers and other short bits of information to people faster on iOS 11. 

Apple also now offers Messages in iCloud. This allows you to keep all of your iMessage and Text conversations in sync across your devices using iCloud. This also means that if you delete a conversation it is deleted across all devices. This will also help keep large message thread storage in check without the need to delete threads all the time.
