Apple March 2016 event liveblog

iPhone SE, iPad Pro 9.7 and maybe a few surprises too

There's only a few hours to go until Apple's next big launch event, and we're ready to bring you all the news.

We're expecting the iPhone SE, the smaller iPhone that'll finally silence the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus haters, plus a 9.7in iPad Pro - all the power but in a more manageable size.

Want to watch live? Apple is streaming everything live on its website.  You can tune in on OS X and iOS using Safari, or through an Apple TV media streamer. Windows users don’t need to miss out either - the stream will play nicely with Microsoft’s Edge browser.

You don't need to go anywhere to get the juicy details, though: we'll be live-blogging the whole thing once as soon as it kicks off tonight at 1AM.

In fact, we've kicked off a little early with a preview before the main event. The page updates automatically, so all you have to do is keep your eyes peeled for the announcements as they happen.
