Monday, March 21, will be a big day for Apple, with possible reveals of a budget 4-inch iPhone SE, a 9.7-inch iPad Pro and maybe even some new Apple Watch bands ahead of the second iteration of Apple’s wrist computer.

Want to watch the Apple event live? Here’s how you do it on any of your Apple devices (and even a PC).

Note: Monday’s Apple event starts at 10 a.m. Pacific. Cult of Mac’s liveblog will start serving up color commentary an hour before that, so don’t be late!

Watch using Safari on Mac or iOS devices

You can watch the Apple event live on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using the built-in Safari browser. iOS devices must be running iOS 7.0 or later; Macs must be running Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later.

Simply launch Safari on any of those devices, and use this link to the event: Livestream the Apple Special Event.

Watch the Apple event on Apple TV

If you’ve got a new Apple TV, you can tune right in via the just-released Apple Events app.

Search for and "get" the Apple Event app on your new Apple TV.

Search for “Apple Events” in the App Store on your Apple TV, then click on the Get button. Once you download the Apple Events app, you’ll be able to either click the Open button or hit the Menu on your Siri Remote and click on the Apple Events app on your Home screen.

You will you be able to watch the March 21 keynote live as well as some archived Apple events of yore. Streaming via Apple TV requires a fourth-generation Apple TV, so make sure you have one before the curtains go up. It looks like the previously available Apple Events “channel” is no longer on older Apple TVs, so if you don’t have the latest model you’ll need to watch on another device.

Watch the Apple event on a PC

If you’re using a PC, and running the Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10, you can watch the Apple event, too. Just use this link to see the show: Livestream the Apple Special Event.
