Apple October 2013 media event

Earlier today, Apple sent out invitations to an October 22 media event saying “we still have a lot to cover.” It’s believed it will focus on the new iPad and iPad mini, but new MacBooks and OS X Mavericks are also expected to get stage time.

The event itself will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. But according to a new report, Apple plans to stream the keynote to a separate London satellite event to cater to media members not located in the US…

9to5Mac has the scoop:

“For its September 10 iPhone event, Apple held simultaneous satellite streams in Berlin, Tokyo, and Beijing. For the upcoming event, the stream will be held in London, according to members of international media invited to the stream. The London-based event will begin at 6PM local time and it will be held at the Kings Place Hall. This hall fits a few hundred people.

It is likely that the London stream will also offer an opportunity for local journalists to try out the new devices. We’re expecting an iPad mini with Retina display, redesigned full-sized iPad, new Macs, and talk of OS X Mavericks, so there will be plenty in store for the demo area.”

The site goes on to say that it has also learned Apple will will be setting up an internal live stream for employees to view the event in company offices across the world. But unfortunately, there’s still no word on a public live stream.

Apple did not provide a live stream of the September 10 iPhone event to its employees, nor did it provide an event stream for iOS device/Apple TV users. Apple has in the past offered live feeds for its customers, though, so it is possible.

Regardless, the event is shaping up to be a big one. Apple is expected to introduce a wide range of new products including a redesigned iPad 5, a Retina iPad mini, new MacBook Pros, and of course OS X Mavericks is on the list as well.

  • Prasoon Singh

    I hope there will be a live stream. It’s more fun than reading a live blog.

    • Freddy Born

      Just wait two hours and watch it in hd on their site

      • Mohammad Ridwan

        I hope someone uploads it on youtube fast… Apple quicktime streaming is a pain.. especially windows folks with low bandwidth….

      • Sam Khan

        Better still buy an Apple TV…

      • Taf Khan

        Low Bandwith sucks more than anything else… Not sure I could cope with slow speeds.

      • Kurt

      • Taf Khan

        Bang on lad.. Tut tut

        Nice to see you back, where you been hiding?

        Ready to purchase a new ipad?

      • Kurt

        in gold! you?

      • Taf Khan

        Space grey for me. Gold is a little bit too much for my liking.

      • Kurt

        I haven’t seen the gold in person so perhaps its not that great? But it seems like people are really liking it. I’ll take a look in person soon enough

      • ConduciveMammal

        I tried that but was inundated with news of what was announced so it kinda ruined it for me.

    Apple’s live streams suck. I know there are millions trying to watch, but it always buffered forever. That’s why I never watched the ip5s unveiling

    • MHCsk

      There wasn’t even the live stream.

      • illK†Δ

        Good then I didn’t miss anything

    I’ve never had a problem streaming from my iPad, I really hope mavericks is available right away, that’s all I’m planning on at the time. Waiting for iPad 6 and iPhone 6 next year.

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      I’m hoping they’ll show off new Macs to run Mavericks on. I want to buy my first Mac sometime this year but are still trying decide between the MacBook Air, Pro or the iMac…

      • At

        Right now I have the 2012 retina MacBook Pro and I also use it as my desktop by connecting it to a external display via HDMI. Works as duel screen or I can close my macbook and just have the one external screen.

  • Xee

    Wish Apple would do a public live stream. Blogs suck.

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Maybe someone will just re-stream the private stream or use something like ustream to broadcast the event from their iPhone (other cameras are available

  • Gróf Attila

    what about mac pro?
