If it seems like we just wrapped an Apple gadget event, that’s because we did — last month. But today, Apple is set to unveil a whole different lineup of new products. And if today’s earlier leaks were any indication, time around, it’s looking like Apple is giving us our first official look at its new iPhones and HomePod Mini.

As with last month’s big Watch and iPad event, today’s event will be streamed on Apple’s website, through its Apple Event channels, and on YouTube. (For details on how to stream it, we’ve got you covered right here.) Gizmodo will be live-blogging the entire event, with members of the consumer technology team popping in and out to share their thoughts on Apple’s latest lineup of 2020 devices.

Aside from phones, weeks of rumours, as well as an apparent pre-launch leak, indicates that we could also see a mini version of Apple’s HomePod that could cost around $140. We could also see new over-ear headphones with the debut of AirPods Studio, as well as an appearance by Apple’s long-delayed magnetic charging docks.

We’ll be covering everything we learn in real-time on the liveblog as today’s products are revealed. God willing, Apple won’t keep stringing us on into the new year.
