    I don't think they've ever live streamed an iPhone event. They normally just upload them a few hours later.

    Apple has never live streamed an iPhone event. They have streamed iPad and WWDC events before but never the iPhone. But who knows, maybe this year will be different.

    They didn't stream iPhone 5S announcement last year, but they did it for the iPad and for WWDC.
    This time they're moving to a bigger place and there's a lot of hype, I don't see why they would miss what is basically free advertising allowing people to watch the event live.
    They really have to stream the announcement this time

    I just want them to stream to windows computers so I can watch at work!

    Other than that, live.twit.tv always has Leo and the crew giving play by play.

    Don't think they did the 5 or any of them (iPhone events that is).

    I'm gonna take a long lunch and watch it in my car on my iPhone hooked up to my car stereo. Don't judge me.

    I believe they've been live streaming for a few years now of every event.

    As mentioned before, they haven't, especially not for iPhone events.

    ----------

    But that wasn't the case for the 5 and 5s events (which the OP/thread asks about).

    They asked about the 5 and 5s event.
    The 6 will be live streamed, I know that.

    And the OP probably knows it now too.

    Live video will be posted here ....

    Could mean they upload it an hour after the event like normal.

    How would you guys feel if Apple releases 4.7" iPhone 6 next week and couple of months later the 5.5 Version comes out?

    If would be nice if they tell us about the bigger version this Tuesday for those who want the larger screen.

    "Live video from our special event will be right here.

    Join us at Apple.com on September 9 at 10 a.m. PDT to follow every moment."

    They wouldn't have people "join" them at 10AM (when the event starts), just to stare at a blank screen for a few hours until they upload the video.

    It will be a live stream.

    I don't think they'll announce two different iPhones in two different events, it would be very unfair.
    Either they'll announce the 5.5 next week or next year.

    I think they will announce both sizes at the event, with the disclaimer that the 5.5 inch device will come later this year.

    The very nature of that "live" word means that it's not something that is done afterward, but is there as it happens.
