How to watch Apple’s iPhone 8 launch online

Alex Kidman 11 September 2017 NEWS


Apple's upcoming iPhone launch, which you can watch online with ease, is rumoured to be its biggest yet, with new phones, watches and more.

The hottest rumour surrounding Apple's September 12 "meet at our place" event to be held on the Apple Park campus in the newly built Steve Jobs Theater is that Apple will announce the iPhone X, a premium standout phone for 2017, alongside updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the form of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

We may also see a refresh of the Apple Watch line to a possible Series 3 as well as an update to the Apple TV to give it 4K capabilities.

Apple will live stream the iPhone launch over the Internet for anyone interested in following the launch as it happens.

The launch will take place at 10am on 12 September 2017, but that’s US Pacific Time. In Australia, events will kick off at 3am on 13 September 2017 AEST; 2:30am in South Australia, Broken Hill and the Northern Territory; and 1am in Western Australia.

How can I watch the iPhone 8 Keynote?

If you’re watching from a desktop, laptop, tablet or iOS device, Apple will provide a live stream from its dedicated WWDC web site, which you can find here. While Apple has been very Safari-centric in previous years, the stream should also work in Microsoft's Edge browser if you're on the PC side of the desktop fence.

If you want to watch on a larger screen and you’ve got an Apple TV set-top box, Apple will provide a stream to the 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TV via the Events app. Apple has a dedicated WWDC app for the 4th generation Apple TV through which it will make a stream of the keynote available.

We'll be providing full coverage of the launch, including all specifications, pricing and comparison with Apple's many smartphone competitors on 13 September.
