Where to Follow Apple’s iPhone Event Live Today

iPhone Event

Today Apple is expected to announce the next generation of the iPhone – at a live event that starts at 1:00PM Eastern. It’s widely expected that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S and also a lower cost new model dubbed an iPhone 5C by rumors and tech pundits.

There is little to no expectation of hearing any new iPad news today from Apple – but there are still a number of reasons for iPad users to be more than a little interested in today’s Apple event. For starters, we’re likely to hear the latest on iOS 7 and when it will be released. We may also hear about new models or new initiatives for Apple TV. And of course, we’ll also get a good feeling for how impressive, or not, the new iPhones are.

I’ll certainly be tuning in to the event.So, what are the best ways to follow it live? Thus far, there are not as many big sites planning live blogs as I’ve seen for many past Apple events. The two best I’ve seen and that I will follow along at are these:

Engadget: these guys have been live blogging Apple events for as long as I can remember, and do a great job of it.

The Verge: great all-round tech site and their live blog coverage of recent Apple events has been very good.

I am also hoping that Apple may announce they’re live streaming the event at some point this morning, as they have with several of their most recent events of this type. If they do, I’ll update this post with a link to their live events page.

Countdown to iPad – iPhone 4×4 (Use Case 23)

Yes, you're once, twice, four times an iPhone... and I love you!
Yes, you're once, twice, four times an iPhone... and I love you!

A great many iPhone apps would benefit from the larger screen real estate provided by the iPad. However, there are quite a few apps that are fine in their current format. In one of my many day dreams… I see Apple providing a framework that allows 4 normal-sized iPhone apps to run simultaneously. Not only does this allow us to mashup our favorite apps, but we can cut-and-paste text, images, video and audio in-between apps. Whoa hang on, since it is my day dream… we can drag-and-drop text, images, video and audio in-between apps… there that’s better.

iPad – the ultimate iPhone masher-upper.
