Apple Confirms 2018 iPhone Event to Live Stream on Twitter for First Time

It’s the day before Apple’s September special event, where many expect new iPhone models to be announced, along with a new Apple Watch Series 4, new iPad Pro models and more.

As for the event itself, Apple will again live stream it for the world on its website, but in a first for the company, the iPhone event will stream live on Twitter as well.

TechCrunch received confirmation from Apple today social media users on Twitter would be able to watch everything unfold live:

Apple confirmed the Twitter live stream to TechCrunch this morning.

Previously, Apple’s sponsored tweets on Twitter suggested the event would live stream, with the company’s wording “Join us September 12 at 10 a.m. PDT to watch the #AppleEvent live on Twitter.” Once a user favourited the tweet, Apple would then reply it would send updates on the day of the event.

By expanding the live stream to a wider audience, that means more eyeballs will witness Apple unveil its rumoured ‘iPhone XS’, ‘iPhone XS Max’ and ‘iPhone Xr’ models.

Apple’s live stream of WWDC earlier this year also expanded, allowing users on Chrome and Firefox to watch the event too, instead of just those on Safari, Apple TV or Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.

BGR first reported Apple would stream its iPhone event on Twitter this year, and now that rumour has turned out to be true.
