Apple TV owners will notice that the ‘Apple Events’ channel has returned to their main menu this morning with an invitation-matching icon. As with previous events, this channel will allow you to watch a live stream of today’s iPad keynote (here’s hoping it goes better than last time).
Apple will also be streaming the event to its website, where users running Safari on OS X or iOS will be able to tune in. For those that are unable to watch live, Apple typically uploads a video of its event to its YouTube channel within 24 hours or so, or you can just follow along with us. Read More

Apple has posted a notice on its website this morning to confirm that it will be providing a live video stream of next week’s iPad event. There’s no countdown timer this time, but the company published the above image showing the stream will begin at 10am on October 16.
We’re expecting Apple to unveil new iPads—at least a new iPad Air—with Touch ID support, thinner profile and possibly higher resolution displays. It’s also believed that we’ll finally see new iMacs with Retina displays, and of course OS X Yosemite will get some stage time. Read More

Apple TV owners have probably noticed that the ‘Apple Events’ channel has returned to their main menu this morning.

Apple will also be streaming the event live to its website, where users running Safari on OS X and iOS will be able to tune in (sorry Windows users). For those that are unable to watch live, Apple typically uploads a video of its event to its YouTube channel within 24 hours or so, or you can simply follow along with us. Read More

Hopefully, you’ve followed along the announcements Apple made during its WWDC keynote that we’ve covered here at iDownloadBlog, but the whole event is so much better than the summaries provided by blogs. Apple has of course provided a live stream of today’s event. If you missed it, a replay stream went live at Apple.com – remarkably enough, just minutes after the keynote has wrapped up.
Yup, now everyone can witness Apple’s boss Tim Cook take slow talking to the next level, laugh at the geeky jokes software engineering boss Craig Federighi cracked on stage (choice quote: OS X Weed) and basically see for themselves why Apple totally killed it today… Read More

As the race for the living room heats up, and rumors of an upcoming Apple TV refresh continue to swirl, Roku has announced its latest entry into the space called the Streaming Stick. The $50 accessory plugs into the HDMI port of your TV and streams a variety of content.
