With the introduction of iPad 2 and Apple A5 processor in March 2011 Apple TV fans got an amazing new feature called AirPlay Mirroring. A5 was powerful enough not only to send a separate picture or video to an HDTV via Apple TV (AirPlay), but also to wirelessly display everything what’s on the iPad 2 screen right on the HDTV, allowing to stream apps and play games on the big screen TV (AirPlay Mirroring). Since then, all the iDevices that got A5 chip or one of its more powerful brothers (A5X, A6) supported AirPlay Mirroring. Yesterday, A5-powered iPad mini and A6X-powered 4th gen. iPad joined the family of devices that support one of the iOS coolest features.

For the first time since 2010 “Back to the Mac” event Apple will live stream its keynote on the web: the company has updated Apple Special Event page where the live stream from today’s iPad mini event will start at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Apple has also added a new “Apple Events” icon to the Apple TV home screen. For now, the new channel only offers some past Apple events but it invites users to tune in at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time to watch today’s event live. It’s the first time Apple TV users can watch Apple event live directly on the Apple TV.
