After forgoing its usual spring iPad keynote this year, it appears Apple is set to unveil new versions of its tablet tomorrow at a media event in San Francisco. We’re expecting to see refreshed iPads, iPad minis, MacBooks, software and more.

Though Apple is reportedly streaming the event for its employees, and hosting a live feed for journalists, we have yet to hear anything about a public live stream. But never fear, iDB will be here all day providing coverage and commentary…

We will be covering Apple’s keynote live tomorrow, along with our analysis of all announcements and subsequent reports. Expect to see the website updated frequently, as we attempt to deliver the news as quickly and as accurately as possible.


What time does it all go down tomorrow? Well the event itself is slated to begin at 10 a.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time). That’s 11 a.m. Mountain Standard Time, 12 p.m. Central Time, and 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. And for everyone else:

  • London – 6:00 p.m.
  • Paris – 7:00 p.m.
  • Berlin – 7:00 p.m.
  • Tokyo – 2:00 a.m. (Wednesday)
  • Sydney – 4:00 a.m. (Wednesday)
  • Auckland – 6:00 a.m. (Wednesday)


As aforementioned, we’re expecting new iPads to be the main focus of tomorrow’s event. The full-sized iPad should get its first hardware redesign since 2011, and it sounds like the mini is getting a Retina display. More on the two tablets here.

Additionally, we’re anticipating a MacBook Pro refresh with Intel’s Haswell processor and more details on the all-new Mac Pro. And on the software side, OS X Mavericks should get some stage time, alongside updated iLife and iWork apps.

Remember, Apple chose to hold its iPad event in the larger Yerba Buena Center, and the invites read ‘we still have a lot to cover.’ And with noticeably fewer leaks (besides shells) than before previous unveilings, things could get very interesting.

iDB is definitely ready for Apple’s iPad event, are you?

    we need to see the option enabled to use Airdrop of mac with iPhone

    • Hussain Alsanona


    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      I’ve not seen AirDrop since it doesn’t work on my 4S (presumably hardware incompatibility?). It would be nice to see Apple integrate a Bluetooth fallback into AirDrop so that legacy devices do not need to be left behind…

      • Jarryd Richards

        I don’t believe that hardware incompatibility rubbish. AirDrop works on the iPad mini and that has pretty much the same internals as the iPad 2 (which doesn’t have AirDrop).

      • Σαλαη αββας

        It has deferent wifi technology , and something like this

      • wadjj

        Different wifi chip, dual bands 802.11 ac etc.

  • Palmer Paul

    What about iOS 7.1? Wasn’t there a rumor that it would come out tomorrow? I hope they add the ability to choose your toggles in Control Center (I really could use a 3G one).

    • Hussain Alsanona

      yeah I’m totally agree dude

    • Casey H.

      And a passcode on airplane mode.

      • CC-Dog

        If thieves really want to cut the signal, they can just throw the device into a Faraday cage.

      • Casey H.

        Thanks Debbie. I know you’re right but I don’t expect most thieves to be that smart.

    • NSA

      I really like Control Center but I think it needs more toggles. Now we are only limited to 5 toggles…

  • Palmer Paul

    Apple, please live stream it to the public!!!

  • xxObliteratorxx

    How long after the event can we start ordering the products that ship immediately?

    • Saeed Ghattas

      Are you serious? 🙂
      Just wait for tonight and we will give you the answer.
      Nobody knows that answer untill apple say so.

      • xxObliteratorxx

        Lol I’m serious all right, got a 3.5 grand budget for MBP tonight.

        What I’m asking is how long after the event is the webpage refreshed?

      • Burge

        You will more than lightly be able to order next week and the shipping will about a week after that..if we’re lucky

      • Taf Khan

        I think it will depends on your location. For the mini 2 maybe release in North America and some Western Europe countries only due to supply constraints.

  • Jonathan

    I’m ready…

  • Nipasaurus

    I’m hoping for a 64-bit ipod touch

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Keep dreaming…

  • Prasoon Singh

    • sharp44MAG .

      Yes more than likely. It is being streamed on the Apple TV.

  • Lisa Casey

    Sydney, Australia will be 4am.

  • mav3rick

    Don’t care anymore. They’ll run the clowny neonOS, the first one introducing the lag on iDevices.

    • TDD140

      I really hope they fix the performance and bug issues. It’s terribly annoying having an iPhone 5C lag, even the slightest.

  • Apanizo2

    Leaks are nice, but surprises are the best !!!

    • Arman

      Surprise mother fuckker

      • Yehya Mansour

        You sir, just owned the internet
