Watch The Apple 'iPad Mini' Event LIVE: How To Follow Today's Announcements As They Happen

That time has come yet again! Apple is hosting another big event this Oct. 23, beginning at 1p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT).

Tim Cook and company will take the stage at the California Theater in San Jose, Calif., to reveal the latest products that have had the tech world speculating since invitations for the event arrived in journalists' inboxes on Oct. 16.

What do we expect Apple to launch this time around? Well, the most anticipated new device is what has become unofficially known as the "iPad Mini," rumored to be a 7-inch version of Apple's iPad tablet. The "Mini" device is expected to be priced more affordably than Apple's 10-inch iPad and would compete with tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. There have also been rumors that the tech giant may release a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, a refreshed line of iMac desktops and more.

So how can ecstatic fanboys and curious gadget gurus follow the second-by-second coverage? Besides following our Facebook and Twitter accounts, check out the list below for the websites with the best online coverage.

For The Best Video...

This time around, Apple is streaming the event live from Apple.com (here). The only caveat is that to view updates, the "video requires Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later," according to the company's site. You can also stream the event live from a second- or third-generation Apple TV, running on version 5.0.2. or later.

If you have a fairly new and recently updated Apple device, the event will be easy to access. For everyone else, there are plenty of other places you can follow along online.
