Yes. Today is that day in September for which you’ve impatiently been waiting for. Apple, today, is holding a ‘keynote’ event at their Bill Graham Civic Auditorium to take the wraps off the new iPhone 7 lineup, and supposedly the Apple Watch 2. And we would be elated if the company greets us with even more new and upgraded gadgets tonight.
The press conference will begin at 10:30 PM IST (or 10 AM PST, 6 PM in London, and 1 AM/Thurs Singapore Time), and you’ll be able to live stream the whole event on Apple’s website. You can use any one of the compatible technologies to view the live stream — Safari browser on iOS 7 and above, OS X 10.8.5 or later or now even a PC running Microsoft Edge on Windows 10.
There have recently been a barrage of leaks and rumors about the upcoming iPhone, and how its design wouldn’t be much different from the last time. The iPhone 7 is expected to phase out the straight antenna lines on the back for a new technology that pushed them to the edges. There has also been a turbulence in emotions, of many, as the Cupertino giant is supposedly getting rid of the 3.5 mm headphone jack tonight. I still don’t think any radical changes to the home button are in store tonight, but who knows!?
Apple will also lay emphasis on its software updates, iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, announced at WWDC a couple months ago. And we would be beyond delighted if the company drops some subtle hints(or actually unveils) the new thinner, but powerful Macbook Pro lineup.
It’s going to be a tumultuous ride for you Apple fanboys, tonight! So get ready to experience the exhilarating fun of the launch as we liveblog the whole event and give you a second-by-second update of the happenings on the ground.
Don’t forget to tune-in at 10:15 PM IST for a warm-up discussion about our expectations(and aspirations) from tonight’s iPhone 7 keynote event. Go set your clocks and reminders, probably more than one. Also, don’t forget to turn on the aircon, it is definite to get really ‘HOT’ in here!!!
