Today's Apple Special Event to be live streamed

Ever since the October 22nd Apple Event was officially announced, one question has been on many Apple watchers' minds: Will the event be live streamed? It appears that the answer is yes. Apple's Apple Events channel on the second and third-generation Apple TV has been updated with information about today's event, along with a page on the Apple web site.

The updated channel encourages viewers to watch starting at 10 AM Pacific Time (1 PM Eastern) when Apple is expected to take the wrap off of new iPads at an event being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in downtown San Francisco. Rumors have varied on what else Apple has up its sleeve today, as well - refreshed Macbook Pros seem likely, as does information about OS X Mavericks' release and perhaps even a release date for the new Mac Pro.

You'll also be able to watch a live stream from Apple's web site, if you don't have access to an Apple TV.

If you can't get near a live stream - or even if you can - make sure to visit iMore, where we'll have up-to-the-minute coverage and analysis of today's announcement.
