09:55 – Gareth again within the using seat right here – I have come off my unnecessary Twitter barrage to in truth write on a site. Some ideas:

1. Somebody smells great close to me. It is like a woody, fruity odor. It is excellent.

2. The ability is not running, however my computer is working with over 7 hours’ battery left. That are meant to be sufficient except Tim Cook dinner has some stuff to get off his chest.

3. I am proper in entrance of the palms on house. I am able. SO READY.

09:50 – We are being handled to a couple funky song over the PA machine whilst everyone reveals their seats. They higher hurry up, we are beginning in 10 mins.

At the degree display there is a colour converting Apple brand. We now have observed some iPhone 11 colour leaks during the last couple of days, together with a fairly fetching inexperienced hue. May this brand be a touch that the brand new iPhones will are available in a variety of colours? 

There is now not lengthy to attend to determine.

09:40 – HYPE LEVEL TO 11

09:35 – Making our means down the steps into the Steve Jobs Theater. No longer lengthy to move now.

09:30 – So, let’s briefly recap what we are anticipating to look very quickly:

09:00 – One hour to move till Tim Cook dinner takes to the degree. Are you able? We unquestionably are. We’ve got Gareth reporting reside from Cupertino, and the entire TechRadar group in workplaces around the globe able to convey you completely the entirety you’ll be able to want to know.

08.50 – Ah, the Steve Jobs Theater. We meet once more.

08.40 – I undercover agent, with my little eye, Apple Campus!

08:30 – Rolling against Apple Campus, there is a good bit of visitors lately. Possibly they heard TechRadar used to be on the town? (or possibly it is simply rush hour)

08:00 – Apple has ditched the plastic badges this yr for a extra eco-friendly cardboard. Is that this an indication of items to return? The sector’s first cardboard smartphone? Most certainly now not… 

Additionally – take a look at that carpet. Wowzers.

07:00 – See, we advised you he used to be wakeful. Excellent morning Mr Cook dinner! A gorgeous morning in Cupertino.

06:46 – Break of day in Cupertino, California, and Tim Cook dinner’s eyes slowly open. He pushes again the sheets and stretches his palms out. He glances at his Apple Watch (grasp on, that appears a bit of other… a 5th era wearable most likely?), which presentations he is had a forged six hours of sleep.

“Easiest” he whispers, as he swings his legs away from bed, “let’s do that”.

06:00 – So what else are you able to sit up for from lately’s Apple Tournament? Neatly there will have to be excellent information for individuals who recently personal an iPhone, iPad or MacBook, as Apple will have to give us company liberate dates for its subsequent large instrument updates.

We already know lots about iOS 13 for iPhone, iPadOS for iPads and macOS 10.15 Catalina for Macs and MacBooks, however the completed variations of the instrument updates have not begun to hit gadgets.

We now have observed Apple announce instrument replace dates all over earlier iPhone release occasions, so we totally be expecting it to proceed the craze this yr.

05:00 – We are wakeful in California! Excellent outdated jet lag, preserving us sharp between the ears. As now we have five hours till the Apple Tournament kicks off, why now not learn our Telephones Personnel Creator, Tom Bedford‘s ideas at the iPhone 11 Professional.

Rumors have tipped the 11 Professional to return with Apple Pencil toughen, permitting you to make use of the company’s stylus with the handset – one thing which has been to be had handiest to the more recent generations of iPads to this point.


It occurs once a year, simply earlier than a large release, and indicators the reality there will likely be new introduced. Apple takes its retailer offline, permitting it to able the brand new product pages with out giving the sport away.

04:00 – Whilst three new iPhones are just about nailed directly to release lately, one thing we are rather less positive on is the coming of the Apple Watch 5. We noticed the fourth era of Apple’s smartwatch release along the iPhone XS in 2020, however the rumors and leaks surrounding its successor had been quite skinny at the floor.

Our Telephones Editor, James Peckham says “To this point, we all know little or no concerning the Apple Watch Collection 5. It is nonetheless most probably we will pay attention about Apple’s next-gen smartwatch later lately and we predict a large center of attention on snoozing monitoring tech. 

“It is closely rumored that Apple is about to make large enhancements in how it displays your dozing, however those options also are prone to land on earlier Apple Watch iterations too. Apple must have a wonder ready within the wings if it will inspire those that already personal the Apple Watch 4 to improve to 2019’s model.”

03:00 – It is nonetheless very a lot the nighttime at the west coast of the USA, and Cook dinner and co. will likely be tucked up in mattress dreaming of latest tactics to mention “surprising”, “innovative” and “beautiful”.

In the meantime, for the ones of you who’re already up and wakeful – what are you able to be expecting from lately’s release? Neatly the primary tournament would be the announcement of latest iPhone handsets – and it seems like it is going to be any other trio of smartphones.

What those new iPhones will likely be known as remains to be up for debate. We are recently pegging them because the iPhone 11R (changing the iPhone XR), iPhone 11 (changing iPhone XS) and iPhone 11 Max (changing iPhone XS Max).

Alternatively, some rumors recommend the “inexpensive” R sequence will likely be known as the iPhone 11, with the iPhone 11 Professional and iPhone 11 Max the flagship choices. Then there is the college of concept which says Apple will persist with Roman numerals and provides us the iPhone XI and co.

It is messy, so tell us what you suppose in our Twitter ballot:

02:30 – Let’s kick off with a bit of sing-a-long to get you within the temper. Were given lyrics for extra verses? Tweet us!
