Apple iPad event live stream: How to watch

Apple is hosting a media event in California this evening, where it is widely expected to announce new iPads, plus a new iMac, and finally reveal the public release date for Mac OS X Yosemite - here’s how to watch the live video stream.

Firstly, some bad news for Windows users - the live stream will only work through Safari on a Mac, or Safari on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It’ll also be streamed to the Apple TV set-top box.

But it’s a little bit more complicated than that - to watch the video stream you will need to use Safari version 5.1.10 or later on a Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or later.

For mobile users you’ll need to use Safari and be running iOS 6 or newer. Finally, Apple TV users will need either the second- or third-generation box running software version 6.2 or newer.

That may all sound quite complicated, but basically if you have a Mac, Apple TV or iOS device which is less than a couple of years old and has its software up-to-date then you’ll be fine.

Apple is almost certainly going to announce the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, as an iPad user guide on the company’s iBookstore mistakenly revealed the names of the two new tablets yesterday evening.

Apple is streaming the event here at apple.com/live and it starts at 6pm UK time.
