Charge your AirPods and plug in your MacBook. Apple’s putting on a big show this week, and you’re not going to want to miss it.
The event, which will focus on Apple’s future in news and streaming media, takes place at the Steve Jobs Theater on Apple’s campus in Cupertino. Things start at 10 AM Pacific (1 PM Eastern) on Monday, March 25. You can watch a livestream of the whole thing on Apple’s website. The stream works best in Safari, but also usually works in the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers. Got an Apple TV? You can watch there, too. Download the Apple Events app, and the livestream will kick in about 10 minutes before the start time. If you miss it, the event will replay on Apple’s YouTube channel.
We’ll also be liveblogging the event starting one hour before the curtain rises, at 9 am Pacific right here on WIRED. Follow along for news, commentary, and analysis.
For Apple, the event is a chance to show that it’s more than just the iPhone company. Apple’s plans for the future go way beyond hardware—although it’s still churning out iMacs and AirPods and iPads, all of which got significant updates this week. It wants to change what you do on all your iDevices, shaking up the way you consume news and watch movies. We expect that will come in the form of a news distribution platform, a streaming video platform, and possibly other services too. For more on what to expect, read Lauren Goode’s preview here.
