We’ll be blowing this out. And why shouldn’t we? iOS 5, iCloud, Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion,” and possibly an iPhone 5 are all expected to be shown, announced, and possibly released. It’s going to be big. It might even change everything, again.  And, for all of your news needs, we’ve got you covered.

First off, we will have our meta-live blog up and kicking. Tune in for that insightful and witty (and sometimes amusing…) coverage on the day of the event. We should have the post live a few hours before the keynote begins, so you can come in and chill out.

Second, we will make use of our Twitter account this year. This will be useful for those of you that will be at work/school/anything else. You can follow us and use a client, or use the following method to get SMS updates of the event. Here’s how you do it:

  1. On whatever your phone is, text “follow TouchFans” to 40404 (if you are in the USA, check these if you are elsewhere). That’s it!
  2. You can text “off TouchFans” to the same number to turn off the updates.

Depending on your phone plan, it might cost money to receive these texts.

We will also be sending out our regular blog updates on the Twitter feed, so you’ll have the short Twitter updates along with the possibility of reading more in-depth coverage. That brings us to our third manner:

We will also, at the same time, be pushing out updates on the blog. Shocker, right? So you’ll be able to follow that here on the homepage, or by our RSS feed. If you’re more into the Facebook aspect of the social web, we also have an account which updates automagically with the latest news!

In addition to that, there will be multiple other liveblogs and sites covering the event across the internet. The biggest of those will most likely be Engadget, This is my next, MacRumors, as well as others. I’ll update this with links to their liveblogs, if and when they go up. There’s also the possibility that Apple will offer their very own livestream of the event to iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads, so stay tuned.
