As Apple launches its latest smartphone, the iPhone 13, micro-blogging site, Twitter has turned its “Like Icon” into Apple logo.
Twitter has joined the #AppleEvent hashtag promotion as its users have seen changes to the service.
Twitter users who click the Like icon on a post containing #AppleEvent will see the icon change from a heart outline to the neon Apple logo.
Also, the Apple logo spins around to display a filled heart icon after a second.
Meanwhile, if you are using a Chrome browser, you won’t be able to see the animation.
It seems Twitter is limiting the animation to some specific browsers.
However, if you are, of course, using the iOS and macOS versions of the Twitter app, you will see the animation.
Meanwhile, if you are still wondering how you will watch the event, stay put.

Meanwhile, apart from the price and general features, one other question that fans are asking is how to watch the event.
Surely, the first port of call to follow the event is Apple website.
However, while on Apple’s website, the event will be there, but you will not find it at all until it begins.
What to know:
The iPhone 13, according to leaks, promises to come with increased prices.
So, you won’t be buying the iPhone 13 with lesser amount like on the price scale which previous versions entered the market.

Also, the phone will come with ProMotion displays and upgraded 5G for Pro models.
Apple calls the new event, “California streaming.”

Options to watch the event:
Although Apple already disclosed a page on YouTube where you can watch the launch, there are other ways too.
However, the YouTube video sometimes lags a little behind the live stream.
Nevertheless, the lag is only in seconds, that is, if it lags at all.
So, if that is not a big deal for you, then you’re good to go.
Just on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV 4K, or even a PC, you can watch the launch live.
You may decide to be following the event on Twitter. That’s cool too.
However, you’re likely to see comments still talking about segments that have elapsed.
Also, since you are not seeing the video, you definitely are missing a lot.
Playback the whole event after YouTube posts it:
Well, you can still catch up with segments you missed.
This is because, YouTube makes it easier to scrub through looking for the segments you missed.
Just drag the slider to the place you have interest and enjoy.
Also, with Safari on a Mac, you can use the standard video editors’ scrubbing tools and press J, K, or L, or move around in short jumps.
You can still enjoy the show on Apple’s website.
Apple is streaming the event live via its own website.
The website shows markers in the timeline. The website also shows descriptions about the event.
Just hover over the dots on the media.
Note however, that its only Apple’s American version of the website that will stream it live.

However, other versions of its website will promote the show. That’s all you will see there.
Good news though, other versions will eventually link you to the live event.
Also, you can stream the event to an Apple TV, and also that recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge can play if they support MSE, H.264, and AAC.
