How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone event on September 12

Not invited to Apple's September 12 iPhone unveiling? Here's how you can grab a front-row seat.

Didn't find an invite to Apple's next iPhone unveiling in your inbox? Don't worry, because you can still grab yourself a front-row seat and watch it as it happens, all from the comfort of your home or office.


First thing's first -- the where and when. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, and kicks off at 10 am PDT (1 pm ET and 6 pm UK time). To see when this is for your local time, check out this timetable. The event is being held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California (but if you're not been invited in person, this won't matter to you).

If you go to Apple's Events site, you can add the event to your calendar now, so you don't forget.

The event is likely to last 2.5 to 3 hours.

So, what do you need to watch? Here's what Apple recommends:

Mac: You'll need Safari on macOS 10.12 Sierra or later, and go to the Apple Events page in the browser.
Windows 10: You'll need to use the Microsoft Edge browser, and go to the Apple Events page in the browser.
iPhone/iPad/iPod touch: You'll need a device running iOS 10 or later, and go to the Apple Events page in the Safari browser.
Apple TV: An "Apple Events" app will appear shortly before the event kicks off, so use this to watch the event.

Apple also says that "Other platforms may also be able to access the stream using recent versions of Chrome or Firefox (MSE, H.264, and AAC required)," so if you are running something else, head over to the Apple Events page and it could still work for you.

The event will be available for streaming either through the Apple TV Apple Events app or the Apple Events website shortly after the actual live event ends. This should be viewable on platforms that don't support the live stream (such as iOS 9, Windows 7 and Windows 8).
