Apple’s iPhone event off to a shaky start as tech problems plague live viewers

Apple’s event today to introduce its next generation iPhone was hit with problems right from the start as live viewers were left unable to tune into the event.

Despite offering a live stream for viewers using Apple hardware, it’s currently not working for many users around the world – including some of the TNW team. Naturally, users reported problems immediately via Twitter.

If the site loaded at all, many users were directed to this schedule screen.

At the beginning of the event, two music tracks were playing simultaneously and other users reported Chinese audio translation on the occasions that the stream did work. On others, the stream simply played on a loop.
