It’s really annoying to be excluded from the Apple Announcement because you don’t have an Apple device. Here is how you can watch it on a Windows or Linux device using the Google Chrome Browser.

Open a Chrome browser and enter the URL for the Apple announcement into the address bar. The link isn’t available yet so you have to imagine that it is in the address bar.

Select Tools > Developer Tools.
