Apple to Live Stream Today's Announcement

09/01/2010 07:45 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Apple announced that it will live stream its product announcement starting today at 10:00 AM Pacific time.

Viewable only on Apple Gear

The event, which is an invitation only press conference, takes place at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. But if you only have a Windows PC, don't bother to tune in. To watch the event at Apple.com you'll need a Mac running OS X Snow Leopard and Apple's Safari browser or an iPhone, iPad Touch or an iPad running iOS 3.0 or higher, according to Apple.

This is the first time in years that Apple has live streamed an announcement. The company didn't say why it's changing its policy, but at the last big Apple announcement where Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 4, Jobs had to ask bloggers to log off the WiFi network because the jammed airways didn't leave enough bandwidth for Jobs to show off off the phone's Internet capabilities.
