Great news Apple fans, it looks like the Cupertino company has decided to live stream today’s so-called “iPad mini” event after all.

Several users have noticed that a new icon labeled ‘Apple Events’ has popped up on the main menu of the Apple TV that matches the press invitations¬†Apple sent out last week. And sure enough, its description says that there will be a live feed of today’s presser…

First spotted by 9to5Mac, the new app’s description reads:

As you probably all know by now, Apple is widely expected to unveil a new, smaller tablet at today’s event, as well as new Macs. There has also been talk of a refreshed version of the third gen iPad making an appearance, and possibly a new version of iBooks.

It’s unknown whether or not Apple will also be live-streaming the event on its web site, but don’t worry, we’ll be covering the entire thing here on iDB.
