After the less than perfect streaming of the iPhone 6 launch event , Apple is going to take another stab at getting it right, this time by streaming the October 16 event.

The event is being held at the Town Hall auditorium on its Cupertino headquarters campus, but Mac, iDevice, and Apple TV owners are also invited.

While this event is not on the scale of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch event, it represents the company's final big product push before the holidays. At the event we are expecting to see new iPads sporting a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a thinner form factor, as well as new Macs – iMacs with Retina displays, along with updated Mac minis are rumored to be in the pipeline.

It's also been a long time since Apple refreshed the iPod lineup, so music fans who don't feel the need to splash out on an iPhone or iPad may get new devices.

There will also undoubtedly be more talk about OS X 10.10 "Yosemite," which is rumored to make an appearance before the end of the month, and it will be free to everyone running a compatible Mac .

There are two ways to watch the event:

  • At To watch the event you will need Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 on a desktop or notebook system, or later or Safari on iOS 6.0 or later on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
  • On the Apple TV: Closer to the event a "Special Events" tile will appear. Viewers will need a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

The event kicks off on October 16 at 10 am PDT, 1 pm EDT, or 6 pm London time.
