Where to watch tomorrow’s iPhone 6 announcement

Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 20.10.24

It’s that time of year again, the time where only one tech company gets all the attention: It’s Apple week. Although, T-Mobile’s doing its best to make sure it gets noticed too. Still, for the second year running, the iPhone launch event is going to be live-streamed on Apple’s website. Head on over to Apple.com/live and you’ll see a countdown placeholder ready for the device unveiling to be streamed straight to you.

The stream – as with all previous feeds –  will be compatible with Safari on iOS devices and Macs (with QuickTime installed) only. It’ll be available to stream on 2nd/3rd generation Apple TV too.

As for expectations, many rumors from well-sourced sites have told us for months that we should expect two new iPhones. One will be 4.7-inch and another 5.5-inch, running the latest iOS 8 software, with better cameras, a redesigned chassis and a higher resolution display. We’re also told to expect a wearable device in two sizes, and 4 different color/style options of each size (male/female designs perhaps). The fact that so many fashion and design publications have been invited last minute is a sure sign that something different is going to happen tomorrow.

If you’d rather follow live-blogs as well, you can expect the usual crowd to be covering the event. Sites like CNET, The Verge and – for the first time since 2009 – Gizmodo among others will certainly be there covering all the action as it unveils.

The event kicks off at 10am Pacific/12pm Central/1pm Eastern.

    Since there have been soooooooo many rumors about what Apple will announce, I’d expect many Apple fans to be disappointed. The only certainty is the 4.7″ iPhone, everything else is hope and speculation.

    • HangmanSwingset

      There are a handful of leaks of the 5.5″ rear shell and other internal parts. It’s existence and impending release are inevitable. It’s just unclear if it’ll ship when the 4.7″ does.

      • VG

        If true, then I doubt Apple will announce the 5.5″ version tomorrow unless it is ready to ship along with the 4.7″ model next week. Apple has a habit of not announcing new iPhones until the week before for fear that potential customers will wait, thereby causing potential sales of any available iPhones to drop.

    • Larry Griffin

      i would hope they will release something other than just a larger iPhone … something to make a 5.5 inches phone worth it … a direct competitor for the note 4

    • KingCobra

      The Watch and the 5.5″ iPhone are all but confirmed as well. Anything beyond that is speculation though.

  • SEBA

    iNote with iPen and iWatch are coming

    • Paul

      What about iGlasses and iPints of beer?

      • SEBA

        LoL… iDon’t know….

  • JB

    I don’t know, something about Apple streaming the conference via their own products seems a little elitist and snooty. If I was a consumer that didn’t already have a Mac (or iOS device) and was interested in making the jump to Apple depending on what they had planned, this aspect would totally turn me off, even if I knew I could find out via my favorite tech bloggers. Or maybe I’m missing the point as to why they do it this way.

    That said, for the first time in a while I’m actually curious to see what they have up their sleeve (not that I don’t follow what apple is up to anyways. Lol)

    • S. Ali

      These events are meant for the media, so the fact we can still watch them is pretty cool. It isn’t surprising that Apple would want to encourage potential viewers to own an iDevice to see it (like a perk).

      • JB

        I can actually see the logic in that. I perhaps was maybe being a little bratty about it! Haha

    • Kidney_Thief

      Apple? Being elitist? Tell me more.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    I have never bought anything Apple except for a ipod nano as a gift like 6-7 years ago. I might just be interested in the bigger screened iPhone when released. Probably the unlocked version

    • Mike Palomba

      You should try them, I was an android fan and refused to get an iPhone. I borrowed my friends iPhone for one day and went out the next day and bought my own, then sold my LG G2. Best choice I ever made and I would NEVER go back to android.

      • aznvanwilder

        Still no removable battery and no expandable memory card slot.

        • Mike Palomba

          Yea those things are annoying but you get used to them. I’m a very heavy user and my iphone battery lasts all day without a problem and iTunes does a great job syncing so it’s easy to secure your data on the computer and just delete it from your phone.

        • aznvanwilder

          Except for Jennifer lawerence, haha. I’m using iPhone 5, have to charge my phone twice a day. On my s4 it would last me at least 10 hours

        • Mike Palomba

          Lol and how long have you had it? After like. A year or so it helps to replace iphone batteries.

        • aznvanwilder

          Only 6 months

        • Mike Palomba

          Wow that’s weird

        • the2000guy

          Because running ios 7 on an iphone 5 drained the battery compared to an iphone 5s that is optimized to run smoothly. Look on the net at all the complains about ios 7 on iphone 5 and 4s when they released it. I’ve tested both and I noticed that my 5s battery lasts longer than my 5

        • There’s a battery replacement program they just announced a few weeks ago. I know because they replaced mine along with the sleep/power key. Check into it,you might’ve got one of the bad batteries in the iphone 5. here’s the link: https://ssl.apple.com/ca/support/iphone5-battery/

        • There is an iPhone battery replacement program for the iPhone 5, I’d give you the link, but for some reason my post was deleted even though I’ve been posting here and in the forums since 2008 and never posted anything inappropriate or inaccurate.

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Samsung has a similar sync method lol back up texts and mms :-)

        • Mike Palomba

          Kies right. I had an s4 and I used kies. It doesn’t even compare to iTunes

        • Jay J. Blanco

          That’s a deal breaker with me because I can pop a new battery in and keep going as for isheeps they have to wall around with cords or external battery

      • Paul

        At this point both OS’ offer pros and cons to the consumer. I’ve used both but prefer Android myself. I know plenty of people that have switched from one to the other. It’s just a personal preference.

        I do hope they bring some great features, and look forward to the WiFi calling for the iCrowd.

    I really hope T-Mobile’s iPhone pricing is better this time around. I liked when they first launched and the iPhone, and all of the iPhones were $20 or less monthly, plus

    • aznvanwilder

      iPhone is the only phone that carriers don’t determine the prices, at least not the full retail cost. It’s the same across the board

  • iOSX

    I really hope T-Mobile’s iPhone pricing is better this time around. I liked the pricing when they first launched the iPhone: $0 down and $18.75 monthly for the 4, $69 down and $20 monthly for the 4S, and $99 down and $20 monthly for the 5. Paying $0 down for the iPhone 5S/5C is no fun when your monthly cost is almost $30.

    • YABD

      I totally agree with you.

    • JE_25

      This is the only phone that T-Mobile does not control the price, Apple does and they are very strict about it. The price is always consistent.
      The iPhone 4 and 4s are bad examples since T-Mobile didn’t start selling iPhones until April 2013 and by then the iPhone 5 had been out since September 2012. So yes, they were cheaper that’s because the 4 was two and a half years old, while the 4s was a year and a half old. And the iPhone 5 was 7 months old.
      If you want to reduce the monthly payment, then put more down and you monthly EIP will go down. If the iPhone 5 had been $0 it would have been $24 a month. But obviously the price had dropped since release.

      • iOSX

        I didn’t say I want the iPhones to be cheaper, but I wish T-Mobile had made the 5S like $149 and the 5C $49 down so that the monthly cost wouldn’t be so damn high.

        • lynyrd65

          You can always choose to pay $150 down (or whatever you want)

        • JE_25

          Lynyrd65 said and so did i. Just put more down. It’s that simple. T-Mobile doesn’t care if you put extra money down.

  • YABD

    I want an iphone with super amoled screen and true black colors and a bold iOS like the touchwiz.

    • iOSX

      At that point you’re better off getting a Samsung.
