Today at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern, Apple will introduce the 2013 versions of the iPad and iPad mini, and I'm sure will also have lots of other iOS and Mac announcements. For example, there will likely be updates to Apple's GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto, Pages, Numbers and Keynotes app because for a short while this past Sunday, Apple's website showed new icons for the apps and new information on the GarageBand app having in-app purchases.
At some point this morning, Apple might announce that there will be a live video stream of the event. That happened last year. [UPDATE: The Apple Events channel on Apple TV now says that there will be a live video stream.] [UPDATE #2: Apple's web page now says that you can watch on an Apple TV, on a Mac, or on an iPhone or iPad.] Otherwise, if you want to learn about the announcements in real time, you can follow along on one or more websites providing live blogs. Here are the ones that I expect to provide some of the best live coverage, along with direct links to their live blogs:
- Macworld. Jason Snell and Dan Moren are perhaps the best live-bloggers in the world for Apple announcements.
- The Verge. Joshua Topolsky typically live blogs Apple announcements for The Verge, although it was Dieter Bohn who covered the iPhone 5s announcement last month, and his coverage was excellent.
- Engadget. I'm not sure who will do this one, but the Engadget folks typically do a good job.
- Ars Technica. I believe that Andrew Cunningham will provide the Ars live blog this year. He did a good job with the iPhone 5s live blog next month.
Finally, if you miss the event during the day, I expect that Apple will post a video of the event later tonight.
