Showcases new iPhone 5, new iPods, new accessories
[Update: podcast version now available on iTunes] Apple has posted a streaming version of today's iPhone 5 and iPod rollout held in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco this morning. The video, which runs just under two hours, features CEO Tim Cook and an array of senior Apple executives announcing and demonstrating the new products along with revealing the release date of iOS 6, the next major upgrade for most iOS devices, which is now planned for September 19.
A podcast version of the stream should be available on iTunes Wednesday in SD, 720p and 1080p versions. The streaming version autosizes itself according to feedback from the user's internet connection, and gives in-depth details on Apple's new iPhone 5 release, the revamp of the iPod lineup and a sneak peek at the next version of iTunes, along with an iOS 6 recap.
Unusually for a major Apple keynote, the event had only one non-Apple speaker: Electronic Arts executive Rob Murray, who came onstage to show off a new game for the iPhone called Real Racing 3 that highlights the advanced graphics capabilities of the new A6 SoC processor. The show ended with a mini-concert by the Foo Fighters, a traditional ending for an iPod-related event.
