APPLE is hosting a major tech event TODAY – and we'll see new gadgets unveiled.
We're expecting a new iPad, two Apple Watches and maybe even the first-ever 5G iPhone.
Apple September 15 event – when is it?
The event is taking place on Tuesday, September 15.
It kicks off at 10am San Francisco time, which is 1pm in New York and 6pm in London.
Normally, these events take place with legions of press at Apple's Cupertino, California HQ.
But this year, the event will be held virtually – beamed around the world via livestream.

It's unclear how long the event will last, but we'd expect somewhere in the region of 60 to 90 minutes.
Apple event 2020 – what to expect
It's expected that some gadgets will be revealed in the September event today with less fanfare than usual – with a bigger iPhone reveal in the coming weeks.
We could see the launch of the Apple iPad Air 4 today.
This long-rumoured device is expected to feature some performance upgrades, but the main change is with its design.
Apple looks set to ditch the old-school iPad design and adopt the newer look seen on the iPad Pro.
This means no Touch ID Home button, allowing for a bigger screen – and the inclusion of Face ID face-unlocking.
The iPad Air sits between the regular iPad and the iPad Pro in terms of pricing.
It's unclear if the price of the iPad Air – which starts at £479 – will increase due to the ritzy new design.
We're also expecting the launch of the Apple Watch 6, as part of the smartwatch's yearly upgrade cycle.
The watch will likely come with Apple's latest watchOS software, which adds brand new features – including sleep-tracking.
The latest rumour is that we'll see new iPhone models announced in October.
Bloomberg recently reported that orders for at least 75million 5G iPhones have been placed with suppliers.
Apple is one of the only major phone makers yet to release a 5G smartphone.
That's despite the fact that 5G networks have been rolling out across the US and UK this year.
And many rivals – including Samsung and Huawei – have released multiple 5G models.
Now Apple is expected to finally join the 5G fray, with four new models supporting the super-fast mobile speeds.
However, Apple hasn't confirmed any such plans, so take all leaks and rumours with due caution.
In other news, Android users are being warned not to download a specific phone background as it could crash their device.
Apple's next AirPods could track your heart rate – using light sensors in your ears.
And, 3D designers have mocked up what the Apple Watch 6 could look like.
