SAN FRANCISCO — Ready or not, Apple has another device on deck, and will unveil it for the first time on Wednesday morning. Wired’s Gadget Lab team will be live at the Yerba Buena Center in downtown San Francisco to feed you the news right as it happens. The event starts at 10 a.m. PST, so bookmark this page beforehand, and refresh it during Apple’s announcement for the latest updates.
Gadget Lab senior editor Jon Phillips (@JonPhillipsSF) and staff writer Christina Bonnington (@redgirlsays) will be onsite, while staff writers Mike Isaac (@MikeIsaac) and Roberto Baldwin (@strngwys) will provide support from Wired HQ.
In the tradition of Apple’s past two spring events, we’re expecting the company to show off its third iPad tablet at Wednesday’s unveiling. Amid rampant speculation, we’ve heard every guess under the sun as to what the new device could feature. There’s the possibility of a super-high-resolution, 1536 x 2048 display, and perhaps a beefy, much-improved quad-core processor. Maybe Apple’s voice-powered assistant, Siri, will come to the iPad for the first time. Or maybe the tablet’s camera will get an HD upgrade.
