Apple Event: iPhone 6, Watch, U2 Live & Apple Pay

Apple Event iPhone 6, iWatch, U2 and more 1PM ET

Apple is expected to announce two new versions of the iPhone today, both with bigger screens than their predecessors, and to introduce a wearable device, nicknamed the iWatch, also expect something big from U2. Extending a decade-long connection with Apple, U2 will play a significant part in Apple’s event.

The new phones are said to have 4.7 and 5.5-inch displays, and a design similar to the current iPads. The smartwatch is expected to feature a flexible display, protected by a stronger-than-glass synthetic sapphire coating, and will charge wirelessly. Both types of devices will reportedly include near-field communication, or NFC, technology that could allow for tap-to-pay mobile payments.

The Apple event starts at 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, which will be held at a performing arts center in Cupertino, Calif.
