Watch Apple unveil new devices live right here

Apple is set to announce new hardware today. The company is holding a (virtual) event at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. in New York, 6 p.m. in London, 7 p.m. in Paris). And you’ll be able to watch the event right here as the company is streaming it live.

Rumor has it that the company is set to announce a refreshed iPhone SE. While the smartphone could keep its iconic iPhone 6/7/8/SE design, it could feature an updated system on a chip and a new 5G modem.

Apple could also unveil an updated iPad Air. Once again, it seems likely that the company is going to refresh the internal components. The new iPad Air could be as speedy as the latest iPad mini that was released six months ago.

But it’s going to be more interesting to see what Apple has in mind for the Mac lineup. As Apple is in the process of refreshing its entire Mac lineup to replace Intel CPUs with Apple chips, there are still some big Mac updates coming this year, such as a new Mac Pro or a new iMac Pro with Apple internals. The company could also update its entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, the Mac Mini or the MacBook Air.

What we expect from Apple’s Peek Performance event
