How can you watch the Apple iPad event on Tuesday? You can stream Apple’s “Let Loose” event on YouTube, on the website or on your smart TV.

This week, Apple is expected to debut new iPad Pros with an OLED display and possibly an M4 chip, roll out an updated iPad Air in a 10.9 and new 12.9-inch size, and update the Magic Keyboard and Pencil accessories. New Macs or AirPods are not rumored to be seen at this event.

Here’s how you can watch it all live.

How to watch the Apple iPad ‘Let Loose’ event

The keynote starts at the following times:

  • 7 a.m. Pacific, United States
  • 10 a.m. Eastern, United States
  • 3 p.m. GMT, Europe
  • 7:30 p.m. IST, India
  • Midnight Wednesday AEDT, Australia

No. 1: Watch on Apple’s website, best for a computer

The easiest way to watch the keynote is to just go to Come Monday evening, the live stream should take over the homepage. Later, it’ll move to, where you can always go to rewatch old presentations. There, you’ll also see a link to Apple Event videos on Apple Podcasts — a convenient way to rewatch (and download) every Apple Event since January 2007.

No. 2: YouTube live stream, a second choice across all platforms

Another convenient way to watch the keynote is on YouTube. The watch page is up now in advance. You can bookmark it, add it to a calendar event, or keep it open until it starts Tuesday morning.

The YouTube live stream is the most accessible across any device and platform. In the past, Apple’s website has gone down if there’s too much traffic (though I don’t recall that happening recently). So, the YouTube live stream serves as a universal backup plan.

However, the YouTube stream usually runs a little bit behind Apple’s own stream. Plus, I vastly prefer the video player on Apple’s website to YouTube’s. If you’re watching on a computer, I recommend you go to but keep YouTube muted in the background, so you can switch to it just in case.

No. 3: In the Apple TV app on your big screen

The best way to watch the Apple event on your TV is in the Apple TV app. The Apple TV app isn’t just for Apple TV boxes.

Any modern smart TV made by Samsung, LG, Vizio, Panasonic, Sony (or any TV running Google TV software) has it built in. You can download the app on your Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick, PlayStation or Xbox if you have any one of those.

Here’s the full list of compatible TVs and game consoles.
