Apple has confirmed that it will live-stream its 16 October iPad launch event, so we’ll be able to see the unveiling of the next-generation iPads in real-time. At the moment, Apple’s official live site has a holding page for the stream, saying the following: “Join us here at apple.com/live on October 16 at 10am PT to watch our special event live.”
Apple’s previous big event took place in early September, and the event was also live streamed. However, many complained that it was a glitchy video and a translation audio track playing loudly over the feed. So, let’s hope that this time things will go smoother.
Take into account that live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Also, streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later. Besides the arrival of new iPads and Macs, we could hear new details about Mac OS X Yosemite and the Apple Watch.
Most of the features and specs of the next iPad Air have already leaked, so you can go ahead and have a read if you are curios. However, while we assume the third-generation iPad Mini will borrow many of its bigger brother’s features, nothing’s sure at the moment.
What I personally am curious about is what is Apple going to do about its iPod line? Are we going to see a new model anytime soon or Tim Cook and his team has called it quits? Maybe we’ll hear something on this, as well.[H/T: @bhatnaturally]
