Last month Apple announced the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to the masses and of course the two products were met with overwhelming praise. It seems like Tim Cook thrives off of the attention that these events get as there is yet another “big” announcement today taking place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, California at 1 p.m. EDT – Leo Laporte and his TWiT cast will be covering the event via live stream.
Laporte will be joined by Sarah Lane, Andy Ihnatko, and Alex Lindsay for their live coverage event of Apple's big iPad and iPad mini unveiling. Rumor has it that in conjunction with the new iPads, Tim Cook will take center stage to announce updates to Apple's Mac computer products and a possible release date for OS X Mavericks – tune in to the Apple event live stream to see what else Cook has up his sleeves.
In a rather sudden power move, Apple will actually be streaming the iPad 5 event live – that alleviates us from having to find a brave soul who is streaming “illegally” from inside the event. Of course there is a kicker regarding the live stream as it is Apple we are talking about here. In order to watch the iPad event today via Apple's Official Live Stream you must meet the following requirements:
Live Streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.
It's great that Leo Laporte will be hosting his own live stream of Apple's event today so that everyone, not just those who choose to use Apple products will be able to watch on live. TwiT.tv will provide the live stream as well as great commentary from the entire cast of characters.
What are you looking forward to at today's big Apple event in San Francisco, California? Do you already have a place in line to purchase one of the “newer than new iPads” or perhaps an iPad mini? With Christmas right around the corner I now see why Tim Cook wants to pump out as many new products as possible – money, money, money!
