Apple recently confirmed the iPhone 6s launch event for 9 September, wherein the iPhone maker is also expected to unveil the iPhone 6s Plus and the new Apple TV with the invite tagline reading: "Hey Siri, give us a hint". The tagline clearly suggests that Siri could be an integral part of the Apple TV announcement, according to some rumours.
In less than two weeks' time Apple will be geared up for live-streaming the big event through its website as well as via Apple TV app. As folks at Redmond Pie point out, streaming the live iPhone 6s launch event is a straightforward and easy process on iOS and Mac devices, while it could get a bit complicated on PCs, Androids and Apple TVs.
