It’s that time of year—summer is over, kids have gone back to school, and tech reporters and Apple-followers turn their eyes to Cupertino, California to cover all the iPhone news coming out of the Steve Jobs Theater.

We’ll be watching, and will keep you posted below on everything you want to know. Last year, Apple unveiled three new iPhones: the XR, the XS, and XS Max. Boy, are those names confusing. You can expect a trio, probably, of sleek new handsets again this year, but what they’ll be called—and what exact features they’ll have—only Tim Cook and crew know for sure right now. Look for lots of focus on the devices’ cameras (will some of them have three image-makers on the back?), new chips powering these smartphones, big OLED screens, and other improvements, like a faster FaceID.

It’s also safe to look for new Apple Watches, and probably an emphasis on the health features that the hardware and watchOS have; last year they announced fall detection and the ability to take an ECG on them, for example. We’ll also get news about when all this new stuff and software—like iOS 13 and macOS Catalina—is actually coming out. Finally, what else will they announce? New iPads? A smaller HomePod that people might actually buy? A credit card made out of titanium? Oh wait. They actually already released one of those.

Stay tuned, and watch the live stream, below.
