How to watch Apple’s iPad and Mac Event on Mac and Windows

Just under a month after it’s last event, Apple is here with yet another event which is set to reveal updates to the iPad and Mac product lines.

Mac

The live stream will require Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Mac and iOS users can stream the event through Apple’s website here when it kicks off at 10 a.m. PDT tomorrow.

Apple TV

Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

Windows

Like the iPhone 6/ Apple Watch event, Apple’s iPad/Mac Oct. 16 press event won’t be streaming on Windows and will requires Safari on a Mac, iOS device or an Apple TV. That means that Windows users will have to figure how to get the stream going using the workaround (via 9to5Mac).

You’ll need to download VLC player and check back here tomorrow for the final streaming link to complete the instructions:

  1. Download VLC Player from here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
  2. Install it.
  3. Open VLC. Click Media (top left) > Open Network Stream.
  4. You will see this screen:

  5. Paste this link into that field: http://p.events-delivery.apple.com.edgesuite.net/14pounqefvoiubefvpiub10/m3u8/atv_mvp.m3u8
  6. An “Unable to open the MRU file …”  will appear until the stream has started.

Apple is expected to unveil a new iPad Air, iPad mini, and Retina iMac alongside a possible Retina MacBook Air and a release date for OS X Yosemite.
