Apple event 2015

Apple's upcoming event is set to take place on September 9, 2015 where the company is expected to release a new iPhone device. If you are a Windows 10 user and planning to watch the event, you will be glad to know that you will be able to experience it LIVE right on your Windows 10 powered device, without playing around the old tricks.

That is right, Apple has added support for Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 – the company’s live event page states:

Requirements: Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

This is a kind of surprising move ( I am surprised and happy at the same time) by Apple as the company didn’t allow Windows users to watch their live streams.

You might be wondering how did that happen. Actually, Windows previously didn’t have support for HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) – however, with Windows 10, Microsoft added support for HLS to Edge.

I will be watching the live event, on Edge (Oh! I am not a fan). Will you? Do share with us in the comments.
