Apple is hosting what’s expected to be its biggest launch event in recent memory. Unlike previous iPhone debuts, Tuesday’s launch will be held at the Flint Center in Cupertino, California — the same site where Steve Jobs first unveiled the Mac personal computer.
All signs suggest the Cupertino-based company will unveil two new larger iPhones. We also expect Apple to take the wrappings off its long-rumored iWatch.
Those who don’t want to miss a second of the CEO Tim Cook’s announcements can live stream the entire the event here, beginning at 10 a.m. PT.
As with previous live streams, Apple is limiting its video stream to users running Safari (version 5.1.10 or later) on Mac OS X (10.6.8 or later) or iOS (6.0 or later) and those with a third-generation Apple TV (running software 6.2 or later).
But if you don’t have a supported browser or device, an easy workaround for watching the live stream in other browsers, including Firefox and Chrome, is changing your browser’s user agent settings. This essentially tricks websites into thinking you’re using a different browser.
The easiest way to do this is by installing a browser extension, like User Agent Switcher for Chrome, which allows you to easily “switch” to Safari, enabling you to view the live stream without leaving Chrome. (You can also change your user agent settings in Chrome manually, with these steps.)
Similarly, Firefox users can use this User Agent Switcher add-on.
With so many big announcements expected, be sure to get your live streaming setup ready well before the 10 a.m. PT start time. Mashable will also be reporting live from Cupertino Tuesday so check our liveblog for real-time updates and analysis from the Flint Center.
