Apple’s iPad 5, iPad mini 2, new MacBook Pro and OS X Mavericks event is slated to start in just a few hours and it is shaping up to be a very fast paced event with a lot of products to announce.
The tagline for this event is “We still have a lot to cover.”, and based on rumors and speculation that’s an understatement. After skipping a spring iPad event and not delivering new MacBook Pro models this summer, there are a lot of products that Apple will unveil today.
Update: Added link to Apple Special Event Live Stream for web.
A live stream of the fall 2013 iPad event remains a possibility as Apple typically streams the iPad events online and in 2012 on the Apple TV. While there was no stream for the iOS 7 event, there are enough new products here that it makes sense to offer a live stream of the iPad mini 2 and iPad 5 event.
Apple confirmed this morning that the October 22nd event will come with a live stream free for shoppers who want to tune in to see what Apple is announcing.
The October 22nd Apple event starts at 10 AM Pacific, and at the following times in other time zones across the U.S.,
- 11 AM Mountain
- Noon Central
- 1 PM Eastern
