Apple sent out invites this morning to its iPhone 6s event on September and while event’s location is getting a lot of attention, Apple has also decided to do something completely unprecedented: allow people running Windows to watch it.

Streaming Apple keynotes has usually required viewers to tune in with the Safari browser on OS X, or via iOS and Apple TV. This year Apple is expanding the audience to also include Windows 10 users, according to the event page posted on the company’s website this morning.

Apple is expect to announce the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at the keynote, along with a redesigned Apple TV that will support third-party apps and include a new controller. The keynote will take place at the historic Billy Graham Civic Auditorium where Apple first unveiled the Apple II computer.

If you’re not running Windows 10 you can also watch the keynote on any iOS device, as well as the Apple TV (2nd and 3rd gen only), and from Apple’s website in the Safari browser.
