JOURNALISTS GATHER AT THE STEVE JOB THEATER

JOURNALISTS GATHER AT THE STEVE JOB THEATER

Tech journalists gather at the Steve Jobs Theater before the first-ever product launch at the new Apple Campus in Cupertino on Tuesday.
Apple is expected to introduce not one, not two, but three new phones, along with a new Apple Watch and redesigned wireless headphones. The company could also unveil a new Apple TV, according to several tech blogs and a recent leak of the company’s upcoming iOS update.

Center-stage, as always, will be the new phone. This time, the focus is on a brand new luxury device supposedly called the iPhone X, a new, top-of-the-line model that forecasters are calling the first radical make-over of Apple’s smartphone in years. Goodbye home button! Hello bigger edge-to-edge OLED screen! The latest iPhone is expected to feature new face-scanning technology that will let the user unlock his or her phone merely by looking at it. (Here’s looking at you, phone!) And Apple is reportedly unveiling the long-awaited wireless charging feature for the iPhone X.

Rumor also has it that the X will be made of some kind of special high-end materials, maybe including the ceramic and sapphire used in the highest-end versions of the Apple Watch.

And it will likely be expensive — maybe $1,000 or even $1,500 or more. In many ways, that’s the point.

As Steve Jobs used to say at these events, “But wait – there’s more!”

Apple has supposedly been working on an updated model of the existing iPhone 7 and 7 Plus — rumored to be called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and both could be introduced this morning. That update could also include wireless charging.

As Vox reported, the launch “is also a perfect time to demonstrate the capabilities of the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 11, which has been available to developers in beta mode for some time now but which will come to consumers soon. One big chunk of the new iOS software is aimed at the iPad market, where new features may not transform Apple’s signature tablets into a full laptop replacement but do make it an increasingly robust computing platform.”

HOW TO WATCH IT LIVE: Since the event is private and only open to the press, analysts and some lucky Apple employees, the rest of us can catch it in several ways:

Live stream: Apple’s live stream is available via a dedicated channel on the Apple TV set-top box or the Safari browser on OS X (10.8.5 and above) and iOS devices (iOS 7 and above). Windows 10 users can watch in the Microsoft Edge browser.Live blog: You can follow along with a number of bloggers who’ll be at the event, including The Verge’s live blog
