Apple hasn’t live-streamed an event in more than two years, but the company has announced that it will be sharing today’s expected launch of an iPad mini live, with the world.
Or, to be more precise: live, with the Apple gadget world.
Those interested in the event can watch over Apple TV or through Apple’s Web site, provided they have the right Apple devices. To watch online, viewers have to have Safari 4 or later for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or later, or the Safari browser on iOS 4.2 or later. To watch on the iPhone, you must have or update to iOS 6.
The tech giant used to stream events live with some regularity, but hasn’t done so since October 2010. Instead, the company has taken to posting the full launch events after they’ve wrapped, though it did live-stream a speech that chief executive Tim Cook gave at the Goldman Sachs Technology conference in February.
