Whenever Apple holds a specific event, it usually restrains it only to its own users. But it seems that this year Windows 10 owners will be allowed to watch the live stream on their own devices.

This time, PC users who have Windows 10 installed will be able to follow the event on their Microsoft Edge browser. As it turns out, this has been made possible thanks to the HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) technology that Apple uses. Microsoft has implemented this in its browser, so this allows Apple to make the stream possible on Windows 10 PCs.

You can now watch the iPhone 2015 launch event on Windows 10

For Apple users, the live stream will work if you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

Windows and Linux users usually resort to using VLC Media Player to stream the event, but more often than not, that turns out to be quite annoying. I know because I tried quite a few times and there were always lagging and disconnection problems.

As funny as it sounds, but Cupertino is doing Microsoft a big favor here, pushing those Windows users with an interest in iPhones or iPads to make the jump to Windows 10 follow the stream. So, what about you, are you going to be following the event or you’re not interested?
