Apple’s iPhone 7 Keynote is happening today. We’ll likely see a brand new iPhone and possibly a new Apple Watch. Most experts, however, aren’t expecting a new Macbook Pro in the works. You can watch the Apple keynote on your computer, phone, iPad, or Apple TV. The event will be broadcast live today, September 7, at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.  (See a Tweet about the iPhone 7 that Apple accidentally released early here.)

Here’s what you need to know about how to watch the keynote online.

How to Watch the Apple Event From Your Computer

The livestream uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming technology. You’ll need a Mac with Safari 6.05 or later on OS X v. 10.8.5 or later to watch it. If you have a PC, you can also watch the livestream with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.

How to Watch From Your iPhone or iPad or Apple Watch

To watch the event live on your mobile device, you’ll also need to visit Apple’s event webpage by clicking here. Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming technology requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with Safari on iOS 7 or later.

How to Watch Live on Your TV

If you want to watch the event live on your TV, you’ll need a second or third generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later or a 4th generation Apple TV. Select “Apple Events” from the main menu to watch the live stream. Check your Apple TV early to make sure you don’t need any updates, so you aren’t delayed from watching the event.

How to Watch the Full Video Later, After It Airs

If you missed a chance to watch the event live, you can still catch it later. Apple’s Events page will add a video of the event as soon it’s over that you can replay from any device, or you can download the event from iTunes for free. All the events are posted on this iTunes page. You can also watch the event later on Apple TV by selecting the “Apple Events” channel from the main menu.
