Apple on Wednesday launched the iPhone 7, a new Apple Watch, and a couple of other new and updated products. As usual, Apple turned to Akamai Technologies to handle the streaming of the event to the public.
On Wednesday the company said Apple’s keynote was the highest ever video traffic event for Akamai.
“Very Exciting! Yesterday’s Apple keynote was the highest ever peak video traffic event for Akamai,” the company posted to Twitter.
That’s saying something considering all of the events and internet traffic Akamai handles from around the world. It’s even more amazing when you consider all of the large events that Apple has held over the years.
Clearly the interest in Apple’s product announcements was very high among tech people and the general public.
