Apple will offer live stream of iPhone launch event
Apple will offer a live stream of next week’s iPhone launch event from Cupertino via its website with a countdown clock already in place.
The September 9 event (3am on Sept 10 Sydney time) will be held in the Flint Centre for the Performing Arts – the same venue where Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the original Mac 30 years ago.
It will be streamed from Apple’s website here.
For past events Apple has also created a dedicated channel on Apple TV to allow viewers to watch the live feed on their television and it likely to be offered once again.
The highly-anticipated and much-speculated event will probably see Apple announce at least one new iPhone with a larger 4.7-inch screen and possibly a second iPhone with a 5.5-inch screen.
Apple may also use the event to reveal the iWatch for the first time. This device has been the subject of rumours for more than a year.
Other new initiatives like a secure payment system using either the iPhone’s Touch ID fingerprint identification or an onboard NFC (near field communication) chip may also be revealed in partnership with major retailers.
Tech Guide will be in Cupertino for the Apple event and will be providing full coverage and analysis.
