The biggest event of apple: New phone release date
Apple will hold its next big event on their new phone release date, when it's expected to unveil new iPhones and updated Apple Watches. Invitations to the event were sent out this morning, with Apple simply saying "See you on the Release date".
The time has come! Apple is close to announcing its new iPhone, probably a new Watch, and some other things we don't know about.
If you didn't receive an invitation like the rest of us mere mortals, a live video stream of the event will be made available by Apple. Here are all the ways you can tune in.
This'll be the sixth year straight that Apple has held an early event to announce new products. As usual, one of those should be the next iPhone. This new generation is believed to be extremely similar to last year's model, with only minor visual differences — such as fewer antenna lines — and one big drawback: the removal of its headphone jack. On the plus side, the new models are expected to be more water resistant, with the larger phone reported to have a dual camera system for taking better photos. Apple may finally do away with the 16GB entry model and move up to a 32GB model as well.
ALSO EXPECTED: A WEIRD EXPLANATION FOR WHY THERE'S NO HEADPHONE JACK
On the Apple Watch front, it's been two years since the Watch was announced and a year and a half since its first-generation model was released. It sounds like Apple is now ready to give it an upgrade, with reports suggesting that new models will keep the same design but add in faster internals and GPS, which would be handy for running. Earlier reports suggested it could have a camera as well, although it wouldn't be surprising if plans have changed since then, given that Apple is shifting the Watch's focus away from messaging.
The Verge will be covering the event live to be slathered in all the Apple release event news you can dream of.
In a Browser
Go to all the Apple release event to visit the all events. Apple's live stream works on any iOS mobile device running iOS 7 or newer. Mac users can watch the stream in Safari (but not other browsers). If you have Windows 10, it will work in the Edge browser.
On an Apple TV
If you have an Apple TV, you can stream right on your television set. The Apple TV will need to have the 6.2 software or newer, but will work no matter what if you have the 4th generation device. It is located inside the "Apple Events" icon on your home screen. If you don't see the icon right now, don't worry—it'll show up before the event starts. Grab some popcorn, jump on the couch and enjoy the show.
WIRED will be there, so check out our liveblog as we unravel everything as it happens during the event.
Twitter is a must during these things. You will be able to keep up with the news through tweets, GIFs, videos, and photos. Also, you can vicariously live your dream of attending the event through the Twitter-sphere. Along with that, one of Apple's Twitter accounts came back to life after five years of dormancy just days shy of the event. This could be a sign that Apple will livestream the event on Twitter as well, but that's a long shot.
