It’s finally time, folks. October 23rd means Apple‘s “special event” is actually upon us. If current speculation is correct, the company is all set to announce a smaller version of their widely-adopted iPad. Whether it will actually be called the “iPad Mini” is up for debate, but it’s almost certainly on the docket to be revealed. Who knows? Maybe they’ll actually unveil something surprising. The show starts at 1 P.M. EST and 10 A.M. in California.
Apple’s event page includes a disclaimer saying that anyone wanting to view the stream will need both Safari 4 and OS X 10.6 or later in order to watch via the web. On the other hand, it goes on to state that Safari on iOS 4.2 should also work, and “Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.” To be entirely clear, click this link to watch Apple’s stream if you meet the requirements.
This is Apple’s first official stream of an event since 2010. Let’s hope it’s a good one. Also, you can watch TWiT TV‘s stream of the event embedded below.
