Hey Siri–give us a hint?

As with other recent Special Apple Media Events, this one will be live-streamed for your viewing pleasure.  This means that if you have access to an iOS device or Mac, or even a Windows computer–that’s right, I said it, you can watch the event live.  Here are the minimum requirements and the devices that will support the live-stream…

  • Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an
  • iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later
  • Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later
  • A PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
  • Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

Make sure to have your snack bowl and beverage next to you, and your iPhone on mute by 1 PM EST.  Most importantly, point your Safari browser here to watch a live feed of inside the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium before the event, as well as the live-stream of all the big announcements.  For a list of what we expect to be announced at the keynote click here.  Enjoy the show!

What we expect Apple to announce at their live-stream Media event

Apple-Media-Event_2015

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or something over the past couple weeks, you already know that Apple has a major Media Event scheduled for tomorrow.  They will be taking over the vast expanse of the  Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco to unveil what is expected to be “the motherland” of product announcements.  Multiple outlets have been reporting that Apple will announce and/or release the following products at the event

  • iPhone 6S
  • iPhone 6S Plus
  • iPad Pro
  • iPad mini 4
  • 4th Gen Apple TV
  • iOS 9
  • watch OS2
  • New Apple Watch bands
  • New Apple Watch finishes

Typically, with iPhone announcements like this we expect to be able to pre-order the new models starting as early as this Friday (9/11), with updates to iOS 9 and watch OS2 coming a couple days ahead of in-store iPhone sales a week from Friday (9/18).  New Apple watch bands and finishes will most likely be available immediately or perhaps along side the new iPhones.

While the Apple TV could potentially be available as early as this week, we do  not expect an iPad Pro to go on sale until October potentially anchoring the release of El Capitan and the iPad mini 4.

This should go down as one of the most packed Apple announcements in keynote history.  Make sure you have your calendar cleared at 1pm EST tomorrow afternoon.  In addition, be sure to stop back here in the days that follow to get up to speed on all iPad related goodness!
