Apple has made an exception. And a big one at that. While the Cupertino giant’s stringent streaming standards have never allowed browsers and platforms apart from its own, to live stream the company’s launch event, there’s an exception this time.
Well, making to Apple’s favoured browsers this time, is the newly launched and critically acclaimed Microsoft Edge.
Yup, if you happen to own a Windows 10 PC with Microsoft’s Edge installed on it, and wish to see Apple launch the new iPhones live, you can live stream Apple’s launch event live, which starts at 10 AM PDT today.
This exception is interesting, considering that Apple only allows devices powered by its HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology to stream its launch/other events. 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.
HLS however, is also compatible with Microsoft Edge, done intentionally by the Redmond giant in a bid to prepare a more modern web browser.
Meanwhile, if you do not have any of those listed above, you can always look out for our special coverage of the event, right here. Cheers fellas !
