Here’s how to watch today’s ‘Spring Loaded’ Apple Event

Apple is set to announce new products today at its event titled ‘Spring Loaded.’ We’ll likely get to see new iPads, Apple’s tile-like tracker AirTag, an iMac, and more. The digital-only event will kick off at 10 a.m. PT.

You can check the event’s timing in your city by using this simple online Time Zone Converter tool.

Since it’s an online-only event, no fees are associated with it, much like the last four Apple events held in 2020. Moreover, it’s worth noting that even though it’s an online-only event, Apple does a great job enticing users with their unique style of presentation and editing.

That said, here are all the ways you can watch the “Spring Loaded” Apple Event today. In case you want to learn what to expect, you can head over to our earlier post where we discuss our expectations pertaining to today’s announcements.

Best way to watch: YouTube

Apple has only recently begun making its livestreams available to watch on YouTube. And that has truly worked for Apple’s benefit. Viewers have observed that the Apple Event livestream on YouTube is usually a couple seconds ahead of the livestream on Apple’s own website.

Moreover, YouTube has the advantage of being widely available on almost every device you own these days. So you won’t entirely strike out if the device you are currently watching on malfunctions.

Heck, even Apple’s own TikTok promotion for the “Spring Loaded” Apple event recently guided users towards its YouTube livestream instead of pointing them to the Events page on Apple’s website.

That said, since YouTube videos, including livestreams are embeddable, you can watch it Apple’s livestream right from this page:

Second-best option: Apple TV app

If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, or an Apple TV box, you can easily watch the “Spring Loaded” Apple event within the Apple TV app that comes pre-loaded on these devices. Apart from that, the app is also accessible on select third-party smart TVs and streaming devices including Roku and Chromecast with Google TV.

Since it is available on almost every Apple device with a screen, we can recommend it as the second-best option to watch today’s event on. It’s also hassle-free as all you need to do is fire up the TV app in one tap and spend another tap to access the Apple event and you’re good to go.

Apple’s website

The third option in this list is also the one that non-Apple device users can opt for to watch today’s event. Although, to be frank, even those on an Apple device can head over to Apple’s official website to watch the event livestream today.

However, it’s worth noting that the livestream there can sometimes be unstable. But for the most part, you’re good to go.

Which device should you use to watch today’s event?

As we’ve mentioned before, Apple’s online-only events are just as, if not more, enticing as its offline, in-person events. What makes them so enticing is the unabashed use of high-quality visuals and slick transitions.

Naturally, these visuals will look best on a large screen. So we recommend to watch today’s event on a TV as opposed to your phone, tablet, or laptop. An additional benefit is that you’ll simultaneously be able to share your excitement on Twitter using the device that’s free.
