How to watch Apple’s iPhone 15 event today: 5 easy ways

Invite for Apple's September 2023 event.

Apple’s next press event is set to kick off today, Tuesday, September 12, beginning at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET. The uniquely named “Wonderlust” event will almost certainly introduce the world to the iPhone 15 series and next-generation Apple Watches — including the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. We could also see USB-C finally arriving on the Apple AirPods Pro.

Like last year’s event, the iPhone 15 event will be streamed across various platforms, including Apple’s website, on iPhone/iPad and Apple TV, X (formerly known as Twitter), and YouTube. Here’s a look at how to stream the highly anticipated event as it happens later today.

Apple has officially updated the Watch Now page of the Apple TV app with links to the upcoming Wonderlust event. If you open the Apple TV app on your iPhone or iPad now, you should see an “Apple Event” section right below your Up Next tab. Tap any of the images in the Apple Event section to start watching the event once the time rolls around.

And here’s a fun tip: if you tap the link a bit early, you can listen to the unique soundtrack Apple has prepared for the event.

You can download the Apple TV app on the App Store on your mobile device.

Similarly, you can also find the iPhone 15 event in the Apple TV app on your Apple TV streaming device. You will find various links to the event on the day of the event, again displayed below your Up Next section.

Search for the “Wonderlust” signage in the Apple TV app on your Apple TV streaming box, click on it, and press Play. Then, prepare to be entertained by Tim Cook and his team.

Since we didn’t score tickets to this year’s iPhone event, we’ll be watching it on our Apple TV with a few Hint waters real close to keep us hydrated!

Many people will be stuck at work as the Apple event begins. Those folks can stream the event from the Apple website.

Look for a prominent link right at the top of the Home page. You can also bookmark the Apple Events webpage and go there later today, right before the show is set to begin. The links are available across all web browsers, regardless of platform.

How to watch the iPhone 15 event on YouTube

Apple Event - September 12

A fantastic option to watch the Apple event is by accessing the company’s YouTube account. It’s especially useful for users who wish to purchase the new iPhone 15 but can only access the event through a mobile web browser … on their Android-based device.

You’ll be able to watch the iPhone 15 event on YouTube on any device that can access YouTube. Whether it’s the YouTube mobile site, the YouTube app, the YouTube website on your computer, etc. If you have a device that can open YouTube, you can watch the iPhone 15 event on it. This is also a great choice if you want to Chromecast the event to another device.

Alternatively, you can tap/click the video player above and watch the event on YouTube right here without having to go anywhere else.

How to watch the iPhone 15 event on Twitter/X

Finally, don’t forget about X. The social network we once called Twitter will also host Apple’s Wonderlust event. You can find the link through Apple’s X account right before the event begins.

What happens if you miss the event?

If you can’t watch the Apple event live, don’t worry. You can stream it later on the Apple website or YouTube page. Sometimes, there may be a delay in posting the links, but they will be available at some point after the event ends.

After 3 days, I love these 4 things about the iPhone 15
A green iPhone 15 on a green bench.

Apple’s new iPhone 15 has hit the streets, and boy, it’s a pretty great upgrade from its predecessor. You now have the Dynamic Island, USB-C, an A16 Bionic processor, and a mighty 48MP main camera that can do up to 2x optical zoom. To top it off, the standard iPhone 15 models have a new matte finish back glass with color infused throughout the material.

I’ve only had the iPhone 15 for a few days now and will be working on the full review for Digital Trends in the coming days. But after just spending a couple of days with it, I’m already thoroughly impressed with the iPhone 15, even though I typically go for the Pro models myself.
The new matte back is absolutely lovely

Does the iPhone 15 have an overheating problem? Here’s what we know
Someone holding the Natural Titanium iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The Apple iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 series have been launched with much fanfare, but it seems that not all users are completely satisfied with the new handsets. Despite the many improvements and new features that come with these phones, users of both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 have taken to social media to complain about overheating issues.

While this may not be a cause for immediate alarm, it is certainly something that Apple and its team of engineers will need to monitor closely, assuming there is a system-wide problem, which there might not be. The last thing anyone wants is for the new phones to become a safety hazard or for users to suffer damage to their devices.

4 things Android phones still do better than the iPhone 15
Clockwise from top: natural titanium iPhone 15 Pro, Nothing Phone 2, green iPhone 15, and Obsidian Black Google Pixel Fold.

The Apple iPhone 15 lineup is here, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The Dynamic Island and USB-C are now available across the lineup, the standard models get a big camera boost to 48MP, the Pros get the new Action button, and the Pro Max even has a fancy new tetraprism telephoto lens for 5x optical zoom.

While all of this sounds impressive, Apple’s iPhone lineup is still behind the competition. Android phones have had some of these features for a while now — and even do some things a lot better.
