    Typically, live streams don't happen. MRs will have live updates. Apple will then post the video of the event to their website within an hour or so after its over.

    I'd say by 4:00pm EST Apple will have it up on their website.

    Most likely:

    No live feed, but lots of live blogs to follow.
    Apple will release the video of the event sometime that day on their website.
    Can preorder tomorrow online, stores will only have it to purchase about a week later.

    I don't think they typically stream the keynote, they release it later. You can however get up to the minute updates from various site, including MacRumors, that have staff on site and run a live blog.

    As for getting your hands on the device, my suggestion would be pre-order it as soon as it becomes available for pre-order. Waiting even a few hours can mean not getting the device on launch day. If you miss the pre-order window, and really want the phone on launch day, I'd suggest you get ready for an overnighter at your local Apple Store or other big box retailer.

    Good hunting :)

    I posted this in another thread but I'll post it here as well!!

    There is a live stream here : http://www.ustream.tv/ltktv

    Whether or not this will be a live video stream as opposed to just a live blog of the event, I don't know, however, someone confirmed that the same site did have a live video stream of the WWDC2012 a couple of months back so its quite probable that they may stream tomorrow's event as well.............;)

    From what I remember, they did 2 live broadcasts over the Internet a couple of years ago. But they have't done any since.

    I'm sure the bloggers and those who make a living at this asked them not to have a live video.

    C'mon..the OP is looking for some help here. You have no clue if preorders are happening that same day. In fact, id say that most likely they won't happen the same day. An what do u mean "stores will have it a week later"? Stores won't have it until its launched, which is rumored to be the 21st. All these questions will be answered tomorrow. Until then, nothing is certain.

    OP, you can watch a live blog right here on MR. They will have a link up right on home page. It's not the live event, but it's a great way to follow it and see pictures of what is going on.

    I don't know for certain, that's why I said "most likely."

    But the past few years, you've been able to pre-order the day of the announcement, and the physical release has been about a week later, or so. In this case, 9 days (if the 21st is the actual date). I am just assuming based on the past few releases. I'm not sure how much more helpful I could've been given that this is all speculation.

    Umm no. Stores will have it at launch, which is one 1 week from September 12th. As far as pre-orders, I don't recall when you could pre-order last year but I don't think it was the day of the event.

    I am pretty sure the launch is the 21st, not 1 week from tomorrow. They may or may not do pre-orders on the day of the announcement. In the past, it is the friday after the keynote; However, the macbook retina was available just an hour after the keynote, so that may be an indication.

    You might be right about the pre-orders not occurring on the day of the announcement. For some reason I thought it was that day.

    Does anybody have any recommendation for the best place to follow the event on my phone? Unfortunately, I'll be out of the office tomorrow so I won't be able to follow along on Engadget on my computer like I have for all the other announcements. Ideally a site that automatically updates and has pictures. Does Engadget have a mobile site for their live blogs?

    Engadgets live blogs work perfectly well on the iPhone - I used to watch all the events on mine before getting an iPad......

    That's usually what I use. The cnet live blog is okay. Sometimes a little glitchy.
    Between @macrumorslive and Engadget I'm covered :)

    No need to argue with me, my post was saying what you said but I was directing it to the guy giving wrong information. I, on the other hand, have not attempted to provide facts regarding what I do not know. :)
