Here’s what we know so far:
1. You Have to Use an Apple Device to Watch
First off, you can’t watch the event on a non-Apple device or application, way to embrace the free market guys.

Users on Twitter are complaining that the event is being overdubbed in Chinese.
3. Despite Everything, the Phone Looks Great
Apple CEO Tim Cook told the audience during the unveiling:
Today, we have some amazing products to share with you and we think at the end of the day you will agree that this too is a very key day for Apple.
The new iPhone will be 50 times fast than previous models. No word on how this will affect livestreams.
4. The Venus Holds Significance for Apple Fans
The event is taking place at Cupertino’s Flint Center for the Performing Arts, the same place where Steve Jobs launched the Macintosh.
