Live Chat event for Apple's 'Gather round' announcement (Fall 2018)

Join us in Ask Different Chat

As many of us know, in September most years Apple hosts a press event during which new products are announced. For example, on 12 September 2017 we saw the iPhone X range, and Apple Watch Series 3 among the major announcements.

Apple has just issued invites to this year's event. Once again it'll be held at its Steve Jobs Theatre located at Apple's new Apple Park 'spaceship' campus!

This event will be held at 10am on Wednesday 12 September 2018 (Pacific Time).

Below is part of the invite Apple issued for the event:
