Here's an awesome surprise: Everyone with a Mac, vaguely recent iOS device, or an Apple TV is going to stream today's keynote. Mash this link right here on the appropriate device, at the appropriate time (10:00 AM Pacific), and you'll be in keynote country. New iPads have all but been totally confirmed by very reputable sources, with the iPad mini rocking a Retina screen and the A7 processor while the iPad proper is expected to get a slightly slimmer form factor and the A7X.

As we've mentioned several times now both on the site and on the podcast, there's a ton of other Apple products ripe for a refresh, so it's really anyone's guess what else shares the stage along with the new iPads today. Fingers crossed for iOS game controllers...! We'll be posting TouchArcade-relevant updates throughout the day, but, if you want the up to the second info, the live stream is definitely the way to go.

  • MkRwilliams

    Just waiting for my friend PresidentZer0 to comment :D hey bro :)

  • Capricornman

    The event will start at 1pm in the afternoon for me so if you're in the UK that's a five or six hour difference to my time zone in Canada. So either 6pm or 7pm start time in the evening for you in the UK
    Should be exciting!!

  • Dustin Leiblein

    Controllers, controllers, controllers.......please.....controllers

    • AngryBaby

      Really? I'll make a bold prediction and say that controllers will never be a big thing for iOS gaming. It's just not accessible and has very little mass appeal. I'll let you be excited, and I hope they announce what you're looking for, but count me as one person who could care less about iOS controller support.

      • hunterkorvis

        Out of touch? We have already seen games updated with the new controller support and companies like logitech have teased their designs.

      • dancj

        And count me as someone who couldn't.

    A7 in iPad Mini Retina would be worse. The 5S will then twice as fast cuz it handle apps on a much lower resolution and the iPad 5 with an A7X will be faster than the Mini cuz it will have more processing power while keeping the same resolution as the iPad Mini. Hello fragmentation.

      Sorry about my controller outburst.

    • Brown Cow

      Control yourself.

      • Jacob007

        I was about to make a self control pun. :-(

      • MkRwilliams

        Enlighten us, please ;}

      • tinkie277

        Haha, I am preying in all fairness though!

    • renatpl

      Controllers

  • Jacob007

    Looking forward to it, especially the new mini and the controllers!

  • one.sixty.four

    Yes! Gotta love live streaming.

  • Mortexsky

    Can't wait to get a new ipad mini!

  • lordyokomoto

    Been holding off upgrading ipad2 for this....just as long as they make ipad5 with huge memory capability ;))

  • Gustav

    The new iPad is a failure for all people who use it in their bed, that's for sure. The thinner borders will sink in your blanket, which effectively conceals large parts of the screen. This is design at its worst, function follows form.

  • cobbyco

    A7 iPad mini? Nope. How will the A7 handle the retina display? That's what the X chips were made for...

    I'm thinking A6X for the iPad mini 2nd gen and A7X for the iPad 5th gen.

      Huh? A7 iPad mini was a yes. Why post false info like this? Was this your 'pre-speech guesstimate'? Well, you failed.

  • ScotDamn

    Uhh. Ok. I guess the new apps are cool... The new mini seems way nicer than the iPad Air.
