Apple has quietly made a rather significant change, this time around it’s going to live stream its September event to Windows users as well. The company is going to provide iPhone 6s event live stream to Windows 10 users provided that they use the new Edge browser. Previously Windows users either had to rely on VLC or another media app to live stream an Apple event where the company usually unveils new devices like iPhones and iPads. It’s going to be different this time around.

This is going to be the first time in many years that Apple will officially provide a live stream to its event for Windows users. The event page on Apple’s website states that Windows 10 PCs are supported with the Microsoft Edge browser.

The company uses its HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol for beaming the event, the protocol is integrated into Safari, OS X, iOS and QuickTime while the company suggests it as a standard but it hasn’t been picked up by many other companies.

Despite the fact that iTunes for Windows does support HLS, Apple has always chosen to keep its event live streams limited to Safari and its own devices.

However Microsoft implemented the HLS protocol in its Edge browser which means that Apple can now provide the iPhone 6s event live stream to the 75 million-plus people who are now running the latest iteration of Microsoft’s operating system.

Apple sent out the invites today, the new iPhones will be unveiled on September 9th.
