There’s a new channel on your AppleTV, namely Apple Events. Now you will be able to see Apple’s live events directly from the AppleTV and not just through their website (which required a OSX device and Safari previously). The event starts around 6pm Irish time, but in the meantime you can view archives of previous Apple Event, like this summer’s iOS 8 Keynote.
Today’s announcement has been fraught with rumours, and one of the more surprising ones is that no new Macbook Air is expected. Updates are expected to the iPad Air, a Retina iPad mini and a 27″ iMac also with Retina display. Almost all the Apple products have a Retina display, so we expect that they might just remove the word Retina in future.
