The wait is almost over. In just a few hours, Apple fans will finally get to see what the tech giant has up its sleeves. The iPhone maker is expected to unveil the follow-up to its flagship phone at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Sept. 9 in Cupertino, California. In addition to a larger display and faster processors, the rumored iPhone 6 is also supposed to come with improved camera features. Apple might even show off its hotly rumored iWatch or iTime smartwatch. If you want to be one of the first to hear all about what Apple has in store, here’s how to tune in as it happens.
1. Make sure you’re using an Apple device. This could be an iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, Mac or even an Apple TV.
iPhones, iPads and iPods need to be running iOS 6 and up, while Macs need to run OS X 10.6.8 or later. Apple TV owners have to use the second- or third-generation Apple TV with software version 5.0.2 or later.
