Did we all enjoy today’s Apple event? We know we did. With Apple unveiling a whole new iPhone, refreshed iPods and more iCloud and iOS 5 info, it’s been a rather eventful day so far.

iPhone Event

While live blogs and photos are a good way of keeping up with the event by proxy, there’s nothing quite like watching the event unfold live before your very eyes, but Apple has just given us the next best thing – a video of their ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ right on their very own website.

The event can be watched in all its streaming glory right here, and although there isn’t currently a downloadable version, we’re keeping an eye out on Apple’s Keynote Podcast feed, as that’s usually where the company posts the full HD versions of all its live events. Don’t expect that to appear until later today, or tomorrow, though.

We’re sure you’ve been following all the action here on Redmond Pie over the last few hours, but for those who have been hiding under a rock, or, perhaps, an oversized Android phone, here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect to see in the event video.

  • iCloud recap – watch as the Apple team take us through iCloud once again, highlighting document syncing, iCloud backup and all the other funky little features we can expect from this free replacement for MobileMe.
  • iOS 5 refresh – one half of the new iPhone experience, iOS 5 re-imagines the whole iPhone experience. New, much improved notifications are present, as are a host of new camera features.
  • New iPods – an update for the iPod nano sees a selection of new watch faces, with Apple almost admitting that more people use the nano as a watch, than a music player. New iPod touch as well, with a white model being added for good measure.
  • iPhone 4S – Twice as fast thanks to twice the CPU cores, twice the graphics cores and more memory. iPhone 4S also includes Siri, Apple’s new digital assistant that promises to change the way we interact with out iPhones.

All this and more, plus Tim Cook’s first Apple keynote, all available for you to watch for free via Apple’s web site.

One little tip, too – fire up Mobile Safari on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and watch the keynote via the wonder that is AirPlay, right on your big screen TV.

Bliss.
