Apple To Hold Major Event On September 9th: Apple TV And Siri Are The Stars

 Apple September 9th 2015 Event

It will be a Year to the Day and Minute when Apple hosts it’s huge event on Wednesday, September 9th at 10:00 AM Pacific in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

And for the first time in forever, I will be away from my virtual desk and cannot live blog the event. How can this be?  Poor planning on my part – or multi- tasking which clearly went out of my control. 

However, you can watch the event on Apple.Com or stream it via your Apple TV. 

And, speaking of Apple TV, get ready to be dazzled by an all-new, Siri-enabled Apple TV, one which will take your entertainment preferences to the next level. Or next several levels.  And, if we believe the rumours, this new Apple TV will come equipped with a new remote and Siri capability which will make surfing for shows, music, gaming etc. incredibly easy and seamless. 

Also, set for the grand unveiling is the new IPhone, iPad Pro and Watch OS2.  Additionally, the availability of iOS 9 and OS X update El Capitan will be revealed. 

Apparently, the new phone will be named iPhone 6 S. Again with the “S”. What does this S stand for?  $$$$$$?   Or is it a tribute to Apple Co-Founder and CEO, the late Steve Jobs.  Please enlighten me Apple or somebody out in the blogosphere hit the comments below and have your say. I am confused! 
And if, like me, you cannot watch the event in real time – oh my goodness, I am dying inside just saying these words – you can stream it later on by clicking on Apple.Com or the Apple Event App on your Apple TV.  

Poor Apple TV 3 – the September 9th Event will quite possibly be one of the last things I view on it. I will be all over that new Apple TV unit and handing over its pre-decessor to family members. 

If you are watching live, feel free to jump in and add updates in the comments section below.

LIVE UPDATE: Apple’s Special October 16th Event Will Be Padded With Goodies!

Update: I am intrigued about the “It’s Been Far Too Long” theme for today’s event. Can this pertain to a new and improved Apple TV product?

Please excuse my hokey headline but I am competing against all the bigwig tech sites for page views here.

Nevertheless, suffice it so say, Wednesday’s October 16th Apple Event will be devoted to the unveiling of the new iPads. These iPads may be thinner and faster and will probably boast a camera upgrade, Apple Pay, Touch ID, new Colors, new Cases and more.

Also, I expect that Apple will reference the Yosemite Update for Mac, with a probable release date in October.

It would be great to see an update to the Apple TV Unit but right now i am holding my breath in hope that this Apple Event will stream seamlessly via the current Apple TV – unlike the brouhaha of their September event. What a train wreck. Seriously. I couldn’t provide live updates because of this glitch.

At any rate, I don’t think there will be any major surprises because so many details have already been leaked. But, one never knows.

So come back at 1:00 PM Eastern (10:00 AM Pacific) on Wednesday for the live GTG update.

What are your predictions for tomorrow’s event?

Overall, I am enjoying the iOS 8 update. It took a few days for everything to run smoothly but, overall, it is a vast improvement to iOS on many levels.

And, I learned that a quick restart/reboot usually takes care of many problems.

However, I was experiencing an annoying keyboard issue Read the rest of this entry

Apple October 22nd iPad Event Will Be Live Streamed On Apple TV And The Internet

In 90 minutes, Apple honchos will take to the stage at the Yerba Buena center in California,

A high degree of fanfare and hoopla has surrounded this particular Apple Event and justifiably so.

A new line of iPads, a MacBook Pro refresh, a new line of really, really, really Smart Covers, an upgrade to the Apple TV unit and more have hit the the rumour mill over the past few weeks.

And to add to the anticipation and excitement engulfing this event, Apple has announced that live streaming will be available via Apple TV and the Official Apple website.

That’s pretty huge if you ask me! There was none of this when Apple launched the iPhone 5C and 5S in September.

Could this be the start of something big – something revolutionary even? It could be!

Here is the quick link, courtesy of TechCrunch:

“For visitors on the web, the event will go live at the Apple Events section of its homepage when it starts in just a few hours. So to recap, you’ll need the following to tune in:

Safari on the Mac or iOS
An Apple TV gen 2 or 3, with the Apple Events channel that arrives special and automatically when things like this go down.”

I will be adding updates right here in this blog topic, so refresh often and tune in for my impressions. It’s going to be an exciting day.
