Apple's much-anticipated iPhone event is happening today, September 12, and based on the (rather convincing) rumors out there, it could be one of the biggest launches for the company's mobile offerings yet. Top of mind is, of course, the successor to the iPhone X, reportedly called the iPhone XS. The rumors indicate there will be at least two versions: the iPhone XS, which will be 6.1 inches and will be the more affordable model, and the iPhone XS Max, which will be a whopping 6.5 inches (the biggest iPhone yet). [Update: Apple's event has wrapped up, and we did indeed get three new iPhones as expected. Check out all of the Apple keynote news in our roundup.]

GameSpot's sister website, CNET, will have full coverage of the event, featuring several longtime Apple watchers and coming to you live from the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. The pre-show begins at 9AM PT / 12PM ET / 5PM BST, with the main event kicking off at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST. You can watch the livestream of CNET's coverage below, or you can head over there for a liveblog of all the big announcements.
