The biggest iPhone release ever -- both literally and figuratively -- could be just days away. Apple is gathering the media to its annual fall product event on Sept. 12, and a long list of product refreshes are expected to be on deck. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but convincing leaks reported by 9to5Mac point to 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. 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 its own Oct. 9 event, you'll want to follow this event live. Here's how.
The 2018 event is following in last year's footsteps: The Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park campus in Cupertino will be the venue, and CNET will have a group of veteran Apple watchers on the scene, backed up by dozens more around the world.
