Today, the Steve Job Theatre will play host to Apple’s “Special Event.” This occasion will begin at 10 am PDT (6:00 WAT), and Apple has offered teasers of a theatre live stream from the venue.
Many people consider Apple’s timing of streaming the event was too close. Furthermore, these teasers include people cleaning the stage to video clips of a dancer to an iPhone Call from Hollywood Actor, Chris Evans. But evidence shows that that the stream includes CGI versions of the keynote theatre with various camera angles. Apple hopes to use these images to increase the curiosity of the viewers.
