On Oct. 15, 2013, Apple announced its long-awaited iPad event. The keynote is rumored to be the official unveiling of an iPad 5 and possibly a Retina iPad mini. Though, according to the event invitation, we may see a lot more than just iPads. It’s quite possible that Apple will also unveil new Macs and finally set a release date for OS X Mavericks. Alongside the event at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Apple will also hold a simultaneous live stream of the event for international media members. According to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, the event will be held at the Kings Place Hall in London and begin at 6 p.m. local time. It’s very possible that media members invited to this remote event will also get a chance the test out the new devices after the keynote has ended. Gurman also notes that Apple may set up an employee live stream:
In addition to the international stream, sources at Apple say that the company will be setting up live streams for employees to view the event in Apple offices across the world. Sources say that Apple also informed employees that a replay of the event will be viewable via Apple’s website and iTunes after the presentation ends (as Apple always offers). This is interesting because Apple was unable to provide a live stream for its employees of the September 10 event. At the time, Tim Cook pointed to the restrictions of the smaller Apple Town Hall venue in Cupertino. This time, however, Apple’s event will be held on a bigger stage.Because of this information, it’s possible that we’ll be able to watch the upcoming keynote on the Web or via Apple TV, but it could also mean the exact opposite.
