Windows 10 Users Will Be Able To Live Stream Apple's September 9 Event

Apple's September 9th event will also be streamed live on windows 10

Ordinarily, when Apple holds a major product declaration, it just lets Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV users watch the live streaming.

But, on 9th September, when Apple is holding its next huge occasion this stereotype is going to change. Apple announced that on its 9th September event they will be announcing the next generation iPhones - the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

The event will be happening live from San Francisco on September 9 at 10AM local time. Microsoft Windows 10 users are now welcomed to the event, as well.

Covered in the fine print of Apple's event invitation is that you can also use Microsoft’s new Edge browser to watch the livestream, included in Windows 10.

Apple has long said that the issue isn't on their end. Apple's Safari uses Apple's own HTTP Live streaming technology. This technology is attempted to push as a standard.

In any case, browsers like Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox never put that standard into their own software.

Presently, Microsoft Edge is the first browser to adopt the standard. It means that Apple can officially invite the non-Mac crowd to watch its upcoming event.

It only requires Windows 10 and Edge browser. According to Apple’s events page, here are the requirements:

"Requirements: Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later."

Definitely this is the good news for the Windows 10 users!
