Apple live events always send the rumor mill into a tailspin: of course the tech world is buzzing, and with the iWatch most likely imminent, the fashion industry is also in a tizzy. And it seems more and more likely that they’ll be a music element to it as well. Earlier this week, we reported that some were speculating that U2 would continue their long-time partnership with Apple at Tuesday’s event, and The New York Times backs up those rumors, confirming that the band “will play a significant part.” They don’t know the specifics, but say that “in addition to performing, the band will reveal an integration with Apple’s products that is connected to its next album, which is expected to come out by the end of the year.” Early rumors speculated that the new album could come pre-packaged with every iPhone 6, but sources close to the band have apparently denied that. Whatever U2 is or isn’t doing, all will be revealed tomorrow — Apple’s live event will take place at 1PM EST.
