It is that time of the year when most of the world (well maybe not Android users) go crazy in anticipation of what Apple is going to launch. It is all but clear that Apple will be launching the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus tonight, and most probably the new Apple Watch 2 as well. Though the event is set to take place at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco tonight, you don’t really have to be there to know what’s happening. Apple is live streaming the entire event, and you will be able to enjoy CEO Tim Cook‘s keynote address from the comfort of your couch.

Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch event is set to kick off at 10:30PM IST, and you will be able to watch the live stream on a wide variety of devices — as long as it is not running on Android. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have generated the sort of hype you would expect from a new Apple launch, and both have hogged the limelight in the past few months. Though they aren’t expected to look very different from their predecessors, there will be enough changes to keep buyers interested. Among the talking points will no doubt be the missing 3.5mm audio jack, water resistant capabilities, and camera — especially the dual-camera setup on the iPhone 7 Plus.

How to watch Apple iPhone 7 launch live stream on Windows PC
Windows 10 users can easily stream the event as well, and all they need is the Microsoft Edge browser that is preloaded on their computers anyway. On either of the computers, you can head over to Apple Events page, and wait for the clock to strike 10:30PM IST for the live stream to begin.
Now if you running an older version of Windows, there are still a couple of ways, which Apple doesn’t really reveal. One of them is to open VLC Media player and head over to Media -> Open Network Stream. Once the live stream begins, you can enter this URL in the given space to watch it on VLC.
Alternatively, there are Chrome extensions like User-Agent Switcher that can downloaded and used to trick Apple’s live stream link into thinking that you are using the Safari browser.
If you are a Mac user, you won’t have to do much, except ensure that your computer is running the latest version of Safari. Apple recommends Safari 6.0.5 and above, and a Mac that is running on OS X v10.8.5 and above and you can watch it by going to the Apple Events page.
How to watch Apple iPhone 7 launch live stream on smartphones/tablets
If you are on the move, you can catch the live stream on an Apple iPhone or iPad. You need to only ensure that both devices run on iOS 7.0 and above. On these devices just head over to Safari browser, open Apple’s event page, and wait for the live stream to start. You should ideally use a Wi-Fi or public hotspot, since watching the entire keynote could sap your mobile data.
Now, Apple doesn’t officially allow Android users to watch the live stream on their devices. But one can download the VLC player app, and follow the same steps as that on a Windows PC.
How to watch Apple iPhone 7 launch live stream on Apple TV
If you own an Apple TV you can watch the live stream on it as well. Streaming via Apple TV requires you to have a second or third generation device running on OS 6.2 or later. It also works on fourth-generation Apple TV. Once you see the Apple Events app on your TV, click on it to start the live stream.
In addition to the new iPhones, Apple is also widely expected to unveil the next-generation Apple Watch 2 tonight. The new smartwatch will look the same as its predecessor, but will boast a faster processor, bigger battery, and sensors like barometer, and GPS among others.
