Apple's event was at the beautiful Howard Gilman Opera House at BAM, the Brooklyn Academy of Music in downtown Brooklyn.
The event is over, but we've updated many of the photos that follow with the latest information. If you want more details, check out everything Apple just announced. If you want to relive Apple's announcements on-stage, see the executives and CNET's editors in action, and cap it with a little Lana (Del Rey), read on.
The company also introduced a new version of its small Mac Mini computer, starting at $799 (£799, AU$1,249) and also available Nov. 7. That's a lot more expensive than the original, which debuted in 2014 (!) for $500.
The new model gets new four- and six-core, eighth-gen Intel processor processors, up to 64GB of RAM and a sleek new space gray finish. Apple has also added up to 2TB of solid state storage, Gigabit Ethernet, four Thunderbolt 4 ports, and two UBA-A inputs. You can also upgrade it to a 10GB Ethernet port. It retains the HDMI input of previous models, too.
The third and final big product announcement was an upgraded iPad Pro. It starts at $799 (£769, AU$1,229) for the 11-inch model and a 12.9 inch model for $999, again shipping Nov. 7.
The home button is gone, replaced with Face ID unlock, the same system used on the newest iPhones. The new iPad is smaller and lighter, with a thinner bezel, but also a lot more powerful. It also uses a USB-C connector, replacing the older version's lightning port, but drops the headphone jack. The Apple Pencil has been updated too.
The photos you just saw were from the current event. But let's go back in time, to the event before the event, when CNET's crew got prepared. With tacos. From left to right: Dan Ackerman, Shara Tibken, Sarah Tew, Mark Licea, Nic Henry and Scott Stein.
