What to expect

It's a shoo-in that Apple will announce the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max during the event. We also expect it to unveil a new Apple Watch or two.

Hopefully, there will be an Apple Watch Ultra 2, which has been popping up in rumours here and there recently, plus an Apple Watch Series 9.

The company also announced its AirPods Pro 2 earbuds last year, so we could see some USB-C enabled AirPods Pro announced during the 2023 event, too (although not a complete refresh). And we fully expect the official, full releases of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14 Sonoma, watchOS 10 and tvOS 17 to be there or thereabouts.

As for the event itself, it is an in-person affair again, like this year's WWDC, rather than the pre-recorded presentation we've seen since the pandemic started.

Another way to follow it all day today and through the event itself is via our liveblog here on T3. We'll be posting regularly, so join us for the exciting announcements to come.
