Windows users usually had to resort to using VLC media player to watch Apple s live streaming. But with the release of Windows 10, users can directly watch the event live on the Edge browser. To live stream its event, Apple uses HTTP Live Streaming technology (HLS), a standard that has been implemented by Microsoft on its Edge browser.

Besides Windows 10 users, those interested in watching Apple s even live will require an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running on iOS 7 or higher. Mac users will need to ensure their computers are running at least Safari 6.0.5 on OS X v10.8.5 or later. The event will also be live streamed on second-generation or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
As mentioned above, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, alongside new iPads and the next generation Apple TV .
The forthcoming iPhones may retain most of the design, but they are expected to be quite an upgrade over their predecessors. The smartphones will be powered by a new A9 chipset, feature 2GB of RAM, and Force Touch display technology, which was first seen on the Apple Watch.
Furthermore, the new iPhones will also feature an improved 12-megapixel rear camera with 4K video recording capabilities, 5-megapixel selfie camera, faster LTE connectivity, and a smaller battery. Apple is also expected to scrap the 16GB variant by making 32GB as the base model for both the new iPhones.
Reports also claim that Apple has taken steps to ensure that Bendgate doesn t happen again. The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are expected to be slightly thicker than their predecessor.
