  • ITPRO 10/22/2013 4:28:21 PM
    Thinner products are always good as long as the battery last long

    I love the new design of the Mac pro, but what kind of monitor it will use? Hopefully they show the whole system..

    Hi everyone, we're inside and ready to go.
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 4:48:18 PM
    And we're in our seats!

    Thanks for joining us this morning. Things should be kicking off in about 12 minutes.
  • Paul Sloan 10/22/2013 4:49:17 PM
    Hey all. Stick around for our great coverage. We're turning off comments now. Thanks.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 4:50:06 PM
    On stage are two MacBooks and iMacs, along with another setup with two other MacBooks, so some Mac software demos are likely on tap.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 4:51:32 PM
    Up front is a who's who of Apple folks past and present. We saw Bertrand Serlet, Apple's former Mac software chief on the way in.
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 4:52:44 PM
    We're here at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a venue Apple has used many times in the past. It's a bit more spacious than their on-campus venue where they launched the iPhone 5S recently, but it's still cozy.
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 4:53:03 PM
    That said, we're still warming up from a long time waiting in the cold to get in! Forgive the typos, cold fingers don't type good.
  • Scott Stein 10/22/2013 4:53:42 PM
    Hey everyone! Seated here at Apple. At least there are power outlets (and Wi-Fi!)
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 4:54:35 PM
    So, who has some predictions for us? We'd love to hear them and we'll share some of our favorites. You can tweet at us. I'm @Tim_Stevens. Josh is @Josh.

    Apple's Phil Schiller milling about up front. Expecting him to do much of the presenting this morning for actual products.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 4:55:35 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 4:56:19 PM
    Just got the five minute warning to put phones in silent.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 4:56:54 PM
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 4:57:32 PM
  • Jason Parker 10/22/2013 4:57:35 PM
    Hey guys, I'm seated and waiting for the event to begin!
  • Scott Stein 10/22/2013 4:57:36 PM
    I don't expect iWatch today. Too much else to discuss.
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 4:57:39 PM
    @kara_h says "Mavericks avail today "and one more thing"" -- That'd be great. We've been waiting for Mavericks for quite some time now.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 4:57:50 PM
  • Scott Stein 10/22/2013 4:58:32 PM
    I do want a new iPad accessory, and I want more on iOS gaming. And Retina Mini.
  • Carrie Mihalcik 10/22/2013 5:00:53 PM

    Cook turning to iOS 7, pointing to early reviews.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:07:52 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:07:56 PM
    5 days post launch, 200M devices were running iOS 7. As of today, 64% are running iOS 7
  • Tim Stevens 10/22/2013 5:07:59 PM
    I hope I'm not jinxing anything here, but Wi-Fi here seems remarkably secure... a nice change from the iPhone launch a few weeks back.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:08:14 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:08:23 PM
    SO we just switched metrics there, but safe to assume that's closer to 300-400M.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:08:34 PM
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:08:57 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:09:09 PM
    Cook turning to iTunes Radio now, pointing to early successes like Justin Timberlake playing his album on there early. 20M listeners have tuned in since the service launched, and listened to 1 billion songs in just the past month.
  • James Martin 10/22/2013 5:09:22 PM
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/22/2013 5:09:25 PM
    Now App Store - more than 1M apps on the App Store, and users have downloaded apps 60 billion times (cumulatively)
