Apple to live stream September 9 iPhone event

By , Sep 4, 2014

apple live stream

Apple updated its website this afternoon to announce that it will be providing a live video stream of next week’s iPhone event. On a new Live page at Apple.com, the company has posted a countdown timer that expires just before 10 am on September 9th.

We are expecting Apple to unveil two new iPhones during the event, at least one of which features NFC for a new mobile payment system. It’s also believed that we’ll finally see the firm’s so-called iWatch, although rumor has it that it will just be a preview.

Apple is breaking the mold this time around, sending out invites earlier than usual and hosting the event at the extra-large Flint Center for the first time in several years. It’s been extremely intent on stressing the significance of its upcoming announcements.

The website says that the event will be streamed live to Apple.com, but we also expect to see it on Apple TV and iOS devices. If for some reason you can’t watch the keynote, or you just want some commentary on the event, make sure to tune into iDB next Tuesday.

    Excitement is at high level for this one.

    Wow their own custom building, and countdown timer on their website!! This is a big deal !! 4 more days can’t wait!

  • James Gunaca

    “A whole lot more” – they really do have a lot for us. I don’t think a new iPhone and iOS 8 alone warrant “a whole lot” for Apple. This is going to be big. Can’t wait.

    when iOS 8 GM realse ??

    • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

      Usually the day of the Keynote.

      • Star Lord

        If u recall history, usually the launch date of iPhone.

      • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

        Last years keynote was September 10th and the GM was released the same day… The final version is usually release two days before the launch date.

      • Star Lord

        Well technically yeah. But I was talking abt the general public release.

      • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

        Well Abdullahs question was about the GM release… Im a bit confused about you questioning my recalling of history.

    Taking day off work! & anyone know if someone will stream it for windows PC?

    • Tony Trenkle Jr.

      Thats what I’m wondering cause thats what I have at work. lol I dont wanna have to use data to watch it on my iPad.

      • http://www.eazycomputers.com/ PhoneTechJay

        Does it not work if you watch it from the Safari browser on PC?

      • InfinitePlusOne

        Nah I tried at WWDC didn’t work from Safari on PC. Had to watch it on tiny screen on my phone :(. It would have been nice of someone to stream the stream from a Mac maybe.

        Same, I’ll be watching from my iPhone again. I thought about taking off work but I took off next Friday so I figured I would just stream it. It will be nice to know that the next time they do this I’ll have a 5.5 screen to watch it on. lol Of course I’m assuming they are releasing that size screen. :)

      Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

      If you have QuickTime installed and spoof your user agent to Safari on OS X it might work…

      • http://www.liam-merlyn.co.uk/ ConduciveMammal

        I don’t think it does, I tried it with the iOS 7 live stream, tried Tor browser, Firefox plugins, even the Windows version of Safari, I ended up watching it on my iPhone

        Well that’s odd since HTTP Live streaming is an open protocol / standard (a rarity for Apple):

    Motorola should learn from this

    • Domodo

      The Moto 360 is far better than any of the leaks we’ve seen so far, and the same goes for the Moto X. Apple is the that should be taking notes.

      • Maxim∑

        Thats not what I was talking about at all. Plus the amount of people who even know what the Moto X is vs iPhone is not comparable. The higher the demand and popularity the more chance for a leak. Your comparing a 4B company to a 607B company

        Motorola said the press event was Sept 4th. they then tell us all at the last second that its going to be private. That pisses a lot of people off. They have a horrible PR team and Im not the only on complaining

  • GadgetQueenn

    This is serious. Apple has never had a countdown and calendar event link. I think I might have to take off from work for this one, lol.

  • Merman123

    Let the countdown begin.

  • Ian Leon

    they have a countdown = this means iWatch !!!
