CNET will have a group of veteran Apple watchers live blogging on the scene backed up by dozens more around the world.

A new iPad Pro is also expected, which Apple hopes can lure people away from rival laptops and hybrid devices.

The star of tomorrow's Apple event will definitely be the new iPads. While the iPhone won over consumers, and the Watch is on a growing number of wrists, Apple is pushing content creation for its other major devices. This suggests that the company could be revamping its hardware products, since the new 9.7-inch iPad, that was launched in March at an event in Chicago. It's from Bloomberg and serves mostly to summarize all details that have surfaced so far for the 2018 iPad Pro refresh. It will not have a notch into the screen like Apple's new iPhones, however. This will be a huge shift towards a more universal standard, all mobile Apple devices have relied on lightning port till now. Apart from the tablet, Apple is expected to announce a newer Pencil stylus and it will still likely to be sold separately.

It's unclear if Face ID will only work in portrait or landscape mode, or if Apple has figured out a way for it to identify faces in either orientation. It will also add Face ID, which would help make that transition seamless. It says that the upcoming tablets will have more squared-off sides.

Everton left to rue missed chances and refereeing injustice against fortunate United
Manchester United secured a 2-1 win over Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, with Paul Pogba scoring one and assisting the other. Was Jose Mourinho right to drop him for today's game against Everton? It was good for us and good for me.

The A12 Bionic that's tucked inside the new iPhone Xs and XR is, without doubt, one of the fastest processors now on the market.

A custom Apple graphics chip, the first time this would be included in an iPad.

For the Mac, Apple is planning its first wide-ranging upgrades since June 2017.

Signs of new Macs came from a filing sighted by Consomac in the Eurasion Economic Union. This, combined with interest in larger smartphones and competing PCs, led Apple to report the fewest Mac sales since 2010 in its fiscal third quarter. Apple's desktop computers have always been a reliable seller, and in recent years the company has made efforts to improve their performance for professional photographers, designers, and other high-end users. Some or all of these products could debut at Tuesday's event. "The 12" MacBook hasn't been updated in a while, and it's really due for some changes as well, so it would make sense if they either release a new Air as a lower-cost version, or make that the lower cost one, and make the Air into a bigger version of the 12" MacBook.
