Apple’s 16 October event will be a live stream as per the announcement of the American multinational corporation headquartered in Cupertino, California, through its live page with the text: “Join us here at apple.com/live on October 16 at 10am PT to watch our special event live.” You can add a reminder and the added reminder to your calendar will ping you when the big event starts on the live streaming.
Currently, the webpage is displaying the message, ”It’s been way too long.”
The special media event will unveil new iPads including a new gold model and Macs with a 27-inch model that has a high-resolution Retina display, with discussion of Mac OS X Yosemite, the next-generation Mac operating system and Apple Pay on the cards.
iPad Air 2 is also said to be the thinnest tablet ever to hit the market.
The Safari Web browser with a version 5.1.10 or later on an Apple device is a pre-requisite, and there are certain operating system constraints too like your machine should have OS X v10.6.8 or later though going by what the website says is that the event will be streamed live to Apple.com.
iPhone or iPad, running at least iOS 6 is required and you can watch the stream via Apple TV units with second- or third-generation Apple TV software 6.2 or later.
Microsoft Windows or other operating systems’ user can avail the opportunity only through a live blog on Apple’s website, which it used for its Sept. 9 event.
CEO Tim Cook said in July, “We still feel the category as a whole is in its early days, and there’s still significant innovation that can be brought to the iPad, and we can do that.”
The event will take place at Apple’s headquarters. The last ballyhoo event of the company was the launch of iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus but the streaming provided was very glitchy and slow. Fingers crossed it works a little better this time.
iPhone 6 live streaming on Apple’s official website was a disaster with many fans complaining the streaming never worked on their devices although they were meeting the requirements of Safari web browser. This has also given a chance to Samsung marketing media team to make fun of live stream failure.
iPad launch live stream on October 16 will be under close watch by Samsung, and if the live steaming faces the users ire again, then Samsung is definitely going to release videos making fun of October 16 iPad launch event.
