Watch Apple's 2014 iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 event livestream

As many of you probably know, Apple will be hosting another event on the 16th of October. The company has announced that anyone will be able to watch the event live, as long as they have an Apple device, of course (OS X 10.6.8, iOS 6, or 2nd gen Apple TV software 6.2 or later required).

Keeping with the company's spirit, Cupertinians have given no official info, regarding what products they will unveil at the keynote, but lots of rumors and educated guesses point towards the next generation if iPads.

The new iPads – iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 – are expected to sport the Touch ID fingerprint scanners that have adorned Apple's phones since the iPhone 5s, have NFC chips for mobile payments, and possibly have a higher resolution. The iPad Air 2 is also expected to be the thinnest tablet to ever hit the market.

The company's invitation for the event is, like always, short-worded and vague. “It's been way too long” it reads, which could mean that Apple is about to unveil a redesign for a product that they haven't touched in a while. Speculations say it will have something to do with Macs or MacBooks.

Well, we will know soon enough, assuming everything goes smoothly with the stream. What do you think Apple means with the vague sentence?

Its is a bit pathetic that Apple live streams to Only Apple devices, at lease live stream via safari for windows. So much for wanting users to move over from android & windows to apple, when they cannot even be bothered to broadcast to them.

I actually agree here. I can't see why it's a bad thing to let everyone stream it.

Because all the flak the haters will cause. This is why apple disables comments for it videos. Who wants to read all that BS from a bunch of losers hating all day.

I guess, they don't have sufficient broadband speed to live stream for everyone. so they have to limit to apple devices only.

Still that's millions and millions of devices... On the other hand, can you imagine how many users of non Apple platforms would like to see the livestream ?

more then 50% of them hate apple, few cannot afford, and some are already in different contract so can't buy the new apple product. :) there should be very less percentage who don't have apple device and might be really interested in live stream. so apple don't care about few percentage.. [just a blind guess]

I don't think that average user would see the livestream. I think this kind of event aims journalists and hardcore users (I like to watch events like WWDC and Google I/O even if I don't own a iDevice or program for mobiles). The last stream showed they are not prepared for mass stream....

They should live stream it on youtube for the others...but as we all know, apple only wants to work for those who purchase apple products...they have stopped working on safari for windows.

I have already said that i don't expect it from Apple but what's wrong in doing it? They already have a channel on youtube If they can post ads on youtube through their channel, they can use it for live streaming as well. And they couldn't stream the iphone/apple watch keynote properly though the apple website...we missed the first half of the live stream.

I think an updated Mac mini is coming. That hasn't been updated in years.

That sentence can either mean an updated Mac mini or an update to the iPod Touch and iPod nano.

Well, it had got to have something to do with their products because the Apple Store is "unavailable".

It doesn't make sense and is in line with the attitude Apple has. Having said that, i am watching the event via UStream.
