Apple iPhone XS/iPhone XR event live blog and livestream: Preshow starts at 9 a.m. PT, noon ET

New iPhones, Apple Watch Series 4 are widely expected, and we could see new iPad Pros, too.

Apple took to the stage today to announce three phones and a brand new smartwatch. Read about the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, Apple Watch 4 here. 

You can watch (or rewatch) Apple's livestream here.


Today's the day. The biggest iPhone release ever -- both literally and figuratively -- is just hours away. 

Apple will kick the proceedings off at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, starting what's expected to be a long list of product refreshes. Our live preshow starts an hour earlier.

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but the latest leak this morning seems to confirm the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max names that have been making the rounds for days. That follows the excellent online sleuthing by 9to5Mac, which seemed to confirm that new iPhones -- including the largest-ever 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch iPhones joining a second-gen 5.8-inch model -- and new fourth-generation Apple Watch models are a certainty. Additionally, Apple could unveil the first-ever iPad models with Face ID, as well as a long-rumored MacBook Air replacement -- and that's just for starters.

In other words: If you have even a passing interest in Apple products, or even if you're an Android fanboy looking to see what Google needs to counter with on its Oct. 9 event, you'll want to follow this event live. Here's how.
