How to stream Apple’s iPad Pro & Mac event on iOS, Mac, Apple TV, and more

In just a few hours in New York City, Apple is likely to unveil brand new iPad Pro models, a refreshed Mac lineup, and more. Head below for full instructions on how to watch the Apple event livestream on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and more devices.

What time does the Apple event livestream start?

Apple’s October event kicks off at a slightly different time than normal Apple product unveilings. This is due to the fact that the event is taking place on the east coast, as opposed to the west coast like usual.

The event is slated to take place at the following times:

  • 10AM EDT
  • 9AM CDT
  • 8AM MDT
  • 7AM PDT
  • 2PM London

How to watch the Apple event livestream on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

The most straightforward way to watch the Apple event livestream on your Apple device is by heading to Apple’s Event website. Here, Apple will offer the stream directly in your browser.

Apple live streams are generally best optimized for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models running Safari with iOS 10 or later. For Macs, Apple recommends macOS Sierra 10.12 or later:
