Apple is about to unveil the 2018 iPhone models at a widely hyped event in the Steve Jobs Theater, and fans who are looking forward to the announcements may watch live through a variety of options.
The Sept. 12 Gather Round event will be headlined by the new iPhones, but Apple will likely unveil other devices. Apple fans should stay tuned to see what the company has up its sleeves.
How To Watch 2018 Apple iPhone Event Live
Less than two weeks ago, invites were released for an Apple event when the company is widely expected to unveil the new iPhones. The invitations were simple, with an image of a ring that likely referred to the ring-shaped building at Apple Park, as well as the date and time of Sept. 12, 10 am PT or 1 pm ET.
For Apple fans who would like to watch the 2018 iPhone event live, the first choice would be to access the stream though Apple's official website once the presentation starts. Users who decide to go with this option will be required to watch on Safari on at least iOS 10.0 or macOS Sierra 10.12, Microsoft Edge on Windows 10, and the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox on Linux.
There is also the option to watch the upcoming event on the Apple TV. The second-generation and third-generation Apple TV, however, will require at least software 6.2, while there should be no issue for the fourth-generation Apple TV. Users will be able to watch through the Events app of the Apple TV, but if the app is not yet installed, it can be downloaded from the set-top box's App Store.
Also, for the first time, Apple's iPhone event will be live streamed on Twitter, as confirmed with the company by TechCrunch. Users who want to watch the event through Twitter will simply need to follow Apple's official account on the social media platform, and wait for updates.
What To Expect From Apple's Sept. 12 Event
The highlight for Apple's Sept. 12 event are the new iPhones, which are rumored to be named the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Plus, and the iPhone XC. The first two will feature 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED displays, while the third will be a cheaper version with a 6.1-inch LCD screen. All devices will follow the design of last year's iPhone X.
The event, however, will also likely be used to launch other new Apple devices. Possible announcements include an updated iPad Pro, a lower-priced MacBook with Touch ID, and the Apple Watch Series 4.
