Are you getting excited about Apple’s next major press event? The company has now officially confirmed that their next event will take place on October 22, firmly bringing us closer to the magical iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 release dates that so many consumers are after.
Naturally, attention has now switched to the availability of a live stream for Apple’s October 2013 iPad event. We have some interesting details to share with you regarding this, especially if you happen to be an employee of Apple residing in another country outside of the US.
It has now been reported that Apple will plan to hold a live stream of the October 22 iPad event, over in London at a separate event taking place at the Kings Place Hall. The time of the event will be at 6pm local time as stated in our previous report here and it’s worth noting that this location will have space for a few hundred people.
It now looks apparent that Apple intends to invite select international members of the media, as well as some employees of the company, to watch a live stream of everything that happens over in the US at the Yerba Buena Center.
With it being an official event, we could also see Apple give an opportunity for lucky attendees to try out the new iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 devices hands-on, presuming that Apple will unveil them at the same time over in the US.
What hasn’t been confirmed yet, is whether Apple intends to open up this private satellite stream to members of the public. The company has been known to be rather secretive when it comes to live streaming events – clear evidence of this can be seen with the decision not to offer a live stream for the iPhone 5S event.
Hopefully we’ll get a clear answer on this during next week, but for now it looks like Apple are picking and choosing their audience. Give us your thoughts on this and whether you think Apple should just let iOS and Mac users view the live stream, like they have done in the past.
