A new rumor says that Apple will only host a single media event this fall and it is today.
The September 9 Apple event is the only one this fall says Apple evangelist John Gruber on his Daring Fireball blog. This means all new major product announcements will happen today. In the past Apple has held a second fall media event in October that focused on iPad and iPods.

Apple announced last year the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 in the October event along with the latest details on the OS updates.
John Gruber says: "Lot of little birdies out tonight in San Francisco. The consensus is that there’s only going to be one Apple event this fall, and it’s tomorrow. So if there’s an iPad Pro, it’s coming tomorrow, no matter how much or how little sense that makes."
This is a plausible rumor. A media event is a huge disruption for the company. It is much more efficient to host one big event. This would also explain why Apple booked a much larger venue than previously. The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium has seating for about 7,000.
This rumor supports the earlier reports that Apple will unveil new iPads today. Apple is expected to introduce the iPad Pro and the iPad mini 4. Other highlights of Apple keynote will be the iPhone 6S with 3D Touch Display an the new Apple TV. Siri will also be a focus point in today's event.
John Gruber posted on Tuesday that his gut feeling says that there will be no iPad announcements today. The rumor has turned his gut feeling upside down.
The Apple keynote will be streamed live starting at 10am PDT. The Apple Live stream works via Apple's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later.
For the first time Apple events can be streamed on a PC. It works with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
