Today is Thursday, the long-awaited Apple event that will officially unveil the latest generation iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini with Retina display 2. In addition, Apple will also make big announcements regarding OS X Yosemite as well as their mobile payments platform known as Apple Pay.

According to Apple's website, the highly anticipated Apple keynote will take place at the Apple campus in Cupertino beginning at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. Once again, the live stream will be limited to Safari users on on Mac OS X (10.6.8 or later) and iOS (iOS 6.0 or later). For those of you that own a second or third-generation Apple TV, simply select the "Apple Events" channel on the home screen.

For those that do not have an Apple device but would like to catch the live stream anyway, there are a couple of workarounds. The easiest way to get around Apple's restrictions is to open up the settings that will enable you to trick websites. The best browser to perform this loophole is via Google Chrome. Check this link for a step by step guide on how to make your browser compatible with the Apple live stream. For Firefox users, the User Agent Switcher add-on for Mozilla Firefox effectively performs the same loophole.

So what do we know so far? A lot, actually. On Wednesday, Apple accidently leaked full images of their upcoming  iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 on their iTunes Store page. Expect the new iPads to feature the new Apple iOS 8 that was introduced in the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In addition, a leaked user guide reveals that the new iPad Air 2 will also feature a new Burst Mode camera function for rapid-fire photos. In addition, both the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 will finally feature the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that was introduced in the iPhone 5s. 

The once popular iPad line has significantly dropped in sales, so the upcoming new products will be extremely important for the giant consumer tech company. Finally, there's little details regarding whether Apple CEO Tim Cook will also take a couple minutes to announce some updates on the new Apple Watch. Stay tuned as Apple hosts their live event later today.
