How To Watch Today's Apple Event

by Chris Tognotti

It's happening again, Apple adherents. Your time has come! Or, rather, the time to watch and stew over a new batch of incoming Apple products has come, a familiar, exciting occasion for fans of the iconic tech brand. Would you like to see CEO Tim Cook dish details on the upcoming Apple Watch, but you're not quite sure where to look? Well, you're in luck, because queries don't get much simpler than that — here's how to watch the Apple event Monday, because you know you don't know to miss it.

It is, to borrow a phrase, easy as pie. Just check out the official Apple event stream straight from San Francisco, slated to go live at 10 a.m. PST, 1 p.m. EST. Of course, it's possible things could get off to a slightly late start. You have to figure people inside the company are pouring over the last-minute details, and we've seen these things get off to rocky starts before. In fact, at Apple's big, initial unveiling of the Apple Watch last year, the stream was a rather tricky ordeal — due to technical issues both with the stream dropping out, and with a foreign language translation playing over the top of Cook's remarks.

Hopefully things will go more smoothly this time, because this is yet another big step for the Apple Watch, in theory and in practice. As is often the case, we've got a broad idea what'll be discussed, with NBC News reporting that it'll be another attempt to stoke enthusiasm for the Apple Watch, likely revealing new specs, an initial price point, and a release date for the new wearable tech. In the interests of full disclosure, I'm hugely looking forward to it — despite some people being underwhelmed by its initial unveiling, I'm kind of hopelessly hooked on the design and potential utility of this thing.

Of course, Apple doesn't like to play it too straight-up with these sorts of things — it tends to have something a little bit on the down-low, rolling out with something just a little less expected. The Verge reports that we may get a new Macbook announcement out of this, as well as a potential update to iOS. Hopefully any new iOS version goes a little smoother than iOS 8 did.

In any case, you've still got a little time to get hyped! Warm up some coffee or tea, get a warm blanket, and settle in when 10 a.m. PST rolls around. After all, as an Apple fan, you only get so many of these things, so it makes sense that you'd get excited.
