Watch Apple livestream the iPad 5 event here
Apple will live stream its special event that will go under the “We still have a lot to cover” motto and it’s expected to unveil the new iPad and iPad mini along with updates to its MacBook lineup and some OS X news.

There is a couple of ways to watch the event live, but all require a device running on OS X or iOS, so if you have a Mac/Macbook or an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch you can watch the event live. If you only have a Windows or Linux machine you are out of luck. Finally, you can also watch the event on Apple TV.

For OS X and iOS users, you just have to head to the link right at the bottom of the article to watch the event, and for Apple TV users you can tune in to the Apple events channel.

Now, what do we actually expect to see? Chief executive Tim Cook should take center stage and introduce the 5th generation iPad. We have seen the leaks pointing to the iPad getting the design of the mini with narrower side bezels and less curvature on the back. The iPad 5 is also said to have become even thinner and lighter.

The second big novelty should be the new iPad mini second-gen. Will it get Retina display and Touch ID or will it shock us by actually remaining the same in terms of screen and touch features and only change under the hood. We still don’t know and we’re excited to find out.

Apple is also rumored to introduce new MacBook Pro models with Intel’s Haswell chip, a much anticipated upgrade, and we’ve been hearing about a new Apple TV with some big changes and possibly even deals with cable operators. And the Apple iWatch... well, next year is the more likely schedule for that one.

Stay tuned to PhoneArena to find out - we’ll be covering the event live as it happens. Right below is the promised Apple livestream link. The event kicks off at 10:00am PST | 1:00pm EST.


Disclaimer: 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.

So again no live video stream from Apple event? And Apple is named as a "tech" company, what a shame!

Add better camera Add stereo speakers Add faster Add better LTE chip; hence, like the 5s, the same version can now be used on more carriers.

I think he was pointing out how stupid it was to list a bunch of differences and then say it's the same.

I would like to disagree, but can we say he's wrong? Really what can we expect this time? What can Apple add that will make the new iPad "new"? Bigger screen? Nope Higher res? Nope CPU from iPhone 5S modified for "retina" display? Maybe Fingerprint scanner? Maybe Aka the new iPad is a enlarged iPad Mini with iPhone 5S innards How about iPad Mini 2? iPad Mini with higher res screen and iPad 4 innards...

Is Apple the ony company that requires you to watch their events using a form of their devices?

lumia 1520 is a phablet not a tablet. Of course the i-Thingy would win. NOOB!!

One thing that you guys should note is that in order to watch this live stream you have to have "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." Oh, and that you have to have QuickTime.

Majority of the comments here show a disinterest in Apple and its products, so why are even here in the first place? Contradiction maybe?

30. stealthd unregistered

There's a lot of walking contradiction commenting on PA. It's actually pretty funny sometimes, I come for the entertainment value. The comments are about on par with YouTube, but generally cleaner.
