As in previous years for its product launches, Apple will be holding a special satellite event in London. Usually, it’s a live stream projection of the keynote announcement taking place in San Francisco. This year, Apple’s iPad launch will be at the Yerba Buena Center, with the only satellite event happening in the England’s capital city at the Kings Place Hall at 6PM British Summer Time.
For its iPhone launch, Apple did have similar events across the globe in Tokyo, Berlin, Beijing and London. Normally, employees are invited to attend along with a few hand-picked members of the press. After the presentation, those press members will get their hands on which ever products are being launched (iPad 5 and iPad mini 2?) for a brief time.
With the official satellite stream taking place, we’re not expecting Apple to live stream the launch to everyone online. We can’t be 100% sure on that since the company did opt to make the live stream available to everyone via its Events page during WWDC in June, but not during the iPhone launch event in September. As soon as we get confirmation of live stream availability, we’ll be sure to let you know. And of course, we’ll be hosting a meta live-blog giving you all the action as it happens.
