With Apple’s (AAPL) iPad mini press conference less than five hours away, the company is currently making preparations for the various new products it will unveil on stage in San Jose, California. Part of those preparations, of course, include taking the online Apple Store down to set up pages for new products. Apple is expected to finally take the wraps off of the iPad mini later today, and new Mac computers are expected as well. While taking the Apple Store offline ahead of a press conference is standard fare for Apple, streaming its event live is not — but the company will make an exception today, and here’s how you can watch all the action unfold live on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV.
