Every year we wonder why Apple don’t do a better job at offering a live video stream of their events, and this year it seems they’ve stepped up to the mark and done just that. You can watch the Apple iPad mini event live with video coverage thanks to an official Apple stream on their TV box, which we’ve been hands-on with just a few hours before the keynote is due to start.
Apple special media event live – if you own an Apple TV you might see a new icon that appeared today, which simply states “Apple Events” and you can see this icon in the screenshot below that we captured a few moments ago. Once you click this icon you will see another page that details the latest “Apple Special Event” that also states “LIVE” in the title.

The Apple special media event is detailed in the description, which explains to users to “tune in at 10:00am” Pacific Time. It also states you’ll be able to watch Apple’s October 23 event with live video directly on the device, and of course whatever you have it plugged in to. For us that will be a Panasonic Projector with a 170-inch screen, so this is certainly going to be one of the best Apple events we’ve ever seen streamed from Apple.
Do you have an Apple TV to watch the live video steam of today’s event? It is worth noting that clicking play now only delivers a black screen with “Apple Special Event” in text, which also explains to come back at 10am, or a start time of 6PM in the UK. The countdown is well and truly began and we have just over 3 hours to go at the time of writing.
Keep connected to PR today for all our coverage of the Apple press event, which should be focused on the new iPad mini with a few other products and services also seeing an announcement like a new iMac, and iBookstore expansion.
