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.

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.
