Apple requires you to have the latest version of Safari or Apple TV in order to watch their live streams. So if you're planning to watch Apple's live stream of their September 9 announcement, make sure you update well ahead of time. Otherwise you may end up crying and tearing your hair out because you're missing the first 15 minutes of the announcement while you wait for Safari or Apple TV to finish updating.

In order to live stream the event on Safari, you will need version 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later and Safari on iOS 6.0 or later.
