The goal of this post is to create a clean, simple, lo-fi record of what Apple announces, in chronological order, with light commentary. The Verge liveblog here will have photos. Refresh this page for the latest.
10am CT: Apple kicked things off with a video of kids playing and talking about changing the world. “We’ve always believed that people with passion can change the world,” Apple CEO Tim Cook says, noting that was on display this past weekend as kids led gun-control marches across the country. “We are deeply inspired” by those students, Cook said.
10:03 Today’s event is about technology, and Apple will be talking about that. He talks about Apple’s history in the education market, “and we’ve never stopped working on it.”
Apple’s “Let’s Take a Field Trip” event in Chicago begins at 10:00 a.m. Central Time (8:00 a.m Pacific), where the company is widely expected to unveil a lower-cost iPad, new education-focused initiatives, and perhaps make some other announcements.

Here we are, kids, hours away from Apple’s big education event where we’re expecting to learn about the company’s strategy to reclaim dominance in classrooms, crucial for the incubation of the next generation of consumers. Apple’s expected to announce a low-cost iPad (an ePad?), probably with Pencil stylus support, in addition to new software and services needed by educators and students alike.
It’s an important event for Apple, which has fallen behind both Microsoft and Google, particularly in US school districts (today’s event is being held at a Chicago high school). Google has emerged to reign supreme thanks to cheap Chromebooks and, as of yesterday, an entirely new class of devices: Chrome OS tablets like the $ 329 Tab 10 from Acer….
Huawei is about to unveil its brand new flagship smartphone — the P20. While many details have already leaked, this is going to be an interesting launch. The conference will begin at 3 PM in Paris, 9 AM in New York, 6 AM in San Francisco.
The company chose to unveil its new device at the magnificent Grand Palais in Paris. This is the first time Huawei chooses Paris to launch a major new device. Carriers and retailers in the U.S. have stopped selling Huawei devices. That might be the reason why the press conference is happening in Europe.
Huawei is now the second largest phone manufacturer in the world behind Samsung and just slightly above Apple. The P10 was a great device, so it’s clear that many Android fans will pay attention to today’s launch.
The original Mix is in no small part responsible for this thin bezel, tall aspect ratio craze that we’re seeing today. It has the trophy case to prove it too. The latest incarnation, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s is getting unveiled today with a couple of major changes. The event starts at 6:00 AM GMT and you can watch it live below: While you wait for the countdown to hit zero, you can check out the rumor roundup – we’ve covered everything that has surfaced about the dual camera, the Snapdragon 845 chipset and the rest of it.
