Apple is notorious for refusing to live stream their various press events online, but today they are making an exception. Or possibly creating a new rule. Yeah, let’s go with that one.
If you want to watch today’s event live, you can do it on Apple’s website.
On the Apple Events page, the company currently lists a “Special Event” for today at 10 am PT. You can access it here. One note of warning, however: Apple is keeping it in the family by only allowing users with Apple products to live stream the event from their website.
That’s right – in order to stream the event today, you must be running Mac OS X v 10.6 or later and Safari 4 or later.
Apple is also allowing mobile streaming on iOS, if you’re running Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Just open up this link on your iOS device to access the live stream (h/t BGR)
Apple is also giving people another way to watch the event: Apple TV. As long as you have the second or third generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later, you should be able to stream the event later today.
It’s widely accepted that Apple will unveil the iPad Mini at today’s event, the 7-inch version of their popular iPad tablet. Other possible launches include a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and new Mac Mini, and iTunes 11. We also think that the event will probably focus on education.
