It does not matter. Press events serve a purpose so let it happen. If they don’t and just make the announcement that’s fine too. I don’t care either way. Also think this is a silly thing to poll about.
Old fashioned with audience and events. Press release supported by varios videos and physical demonstration in apple Stores is the way.
Apple keynotes have gotten so stale and repetitive so just a press release and shipping product would be fine for me. No need to make a big event with products that just get some minor updated features and save the keynote events for introducing new product categories or revolutionary products.
