The event is just starting, everyone taking their seats, exciting! It’s starting, (the Apple live event) – lights have been dimmed…
We have all been looking forward to this day, Apple is holding a significant keynote event and we are really hoping (as we’re sure you are) to see the new iPhone 6 launch. We’re also hoping there maybe a new wearable device and a payments system is also expected to be launched.
We will be tweeting the event live from our main Twitter account @theappwhisperer – as well as keeping this special page updated, with each and every announcement. As always the event is scheduled to launch at 10 am Pacific time, that’s 6 pm ‘my’ London time, 1pm Eastern time and 1 am Hong Kong time (sorry Cara).
You will be able to watch the live stream video broadcast by Apple from the event, here’s the link for that. There’s a catch though as Apple explain, “Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.”
So, if you can’t access that or don’t have the bandwidth, make sure you follow us right here, we’re hoping that many of you will chip in with your thoughts and comments as we work through the event.
