Live coverage of the Apple unveil

Waiting for word on the iWatch? Follow along on this blog.

At 1 p.m., Apple will host its first major product launch event of the year. As our business columnist Lucas Kawa noted earlier today: “Tim Cook is expected to unveil: two new iPhones with larger screens, a mobile payments system and information about the launch dates for its new operating systems. However, the highlight is expected to be Apple’s foray into the world of wearable tech via an iWatch. This would mark the tech giant’s first notable new product category since the iPad and the passing of Steve Jobs. If the iWatch proves to be half as indispensable as the iPhone, this would be enough to prove that Apple is still able to innovate without its visionary co-founder.”
