How to watch Apple’s October 2018 iPad launch


Apple has sent out invites for an event on 30 October 2018 where the company is rumoured to reveal new iPad Pro tablets and a handful of updates to the Mac line-up, including a possible successor to the MacBook Air. The invite has the caption “There’s more in the making” and unlike with previous events, Apple has sent out invites with several different designs, hinting at a creative-focused event.

If you aren’t actually invited to attend the event in person, fear not, Apple will be live-streaming the keynote so that you can watch the unveiling of the new Apple products from the comfort of your own home. In this article, we tell you exactly what you need to do to watch the keynote on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and PC.

For more information on what might be revealed during the event, take a look at what we expect Apple to announce at the October event.

You’ll be able to watch the announcements as they happen on 30 October via Apple’s livestream.

Below we’ll outline the options for Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV below, as well as the hardware and software requirements to watch the stream.

Don’t worry too much if you miss the event, as it’ll be available to watch whenever you want from the Apple TV’s Apple Events app, or from Apple’s own Events page on its website.

What time will the October 2018 event start?

The Special Event keynote at which Apple will unveil its new products will start at 10am in New York, or 2pm GMT for those watching in the UK.

Often the keynote livestream itself doesn’t start until a few minutes after the commencement time – and don’t worry if you are a few minutes late as your video feed will start from the beginning. It is likely to last somewhere between two and two and a half hours based on our knowledge of previous events.

How to watch the October 2018 launch on PC or Mac

You need to be running Safari on macOS 10.11 or later, or Windows 7, 8 or 10 on PC to watch the livestream, with the latter requiring Microsoft Edge to watch the livestream. 

To watch, simply head to the Apple Events page on the Apple website.

Apple says that its keynote videos are best experienced on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Safari on iOS 10 or later (although it will play on iOS 9 too).

You can watch or rewatch the keynote at the same link as above: Apple Events.

How to watch the October 2018 launch on Apple TV

For Apple TV users, the process is slightly different.

Instead of heading to a dedicated website, users should access the “Apple Events” app shortly before the event. Once opened, users should be welcomed with the option to live stream Apple’s September event – if not, give it a little while and check back.

Apple Events requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later, or an Apple TV (4th generation or later).

Apple TV users will be able to rewatch the keynote (as long as they have a 2nd generation or later model running the latest Apple TV software or tvOS) via the Apple Events app.
