It’s official, Apple is streaming their press event on Twitter for the first time
How will you tune in?
For the first time, Apple is live streaming a press event through Twitter. Tomorrow’s “Gather round” event begins at 10 a.m. PDT. Previously, we reported Apple was live streaming tomorrow’s event as it has done for previous events, on both Apple TV and the company’s website.
On Monday, the company sent out a promoted tweet that asked users to sign up for “updates” by clicking on the “Like” heart for updates and to follow the action on Twitter via the #AppleEvent hashtag.
The company has already posted a landing page for next week’s event, as well as the requirements. With this landing page, it opens up the event to more users, as previous events required the Safari browser to watch.

If you plan on watching the event through Apple TV, you’ll want to download the Events app from the Apple TV App Store. To stream via AirPlay, you’ll need a 2nd generation or later version with the latest updates.
Otherwise, just click on the landing page link mention above from your computer or mobile device right before the start of the event.
According to the landing page, the event is best watched on Safari on Mac running MacOS 10.12 Sierra or later. Edge is also fully supported for Windows 10 users. The company does note that other platforms, like Chrome and Firefox, can stream the event with recent versions of both browsers, but that MSE, H.264, and AAC are required. Those stipulations should not prove to be an issue if your browsers are updated.
It’s great to see Apple is bringing the event to Twitter tomorrow for the first time. Hopefully, it doesn’t experience any technical problems.
