Apple is hosting its annual September press conference on Wednesday at the Steve Jobs Theater on its circular Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. The stereo speakers have also been improved to provide "wider" stereo sound. Follow live updates below.

Apple has invited journalists, analysts, and tech industry figures to its campus on Wednesday for the launch of new iPhone and Apple Watch models.

It is expected to be a grander form of the iPhone X with a 6.5-inch screen, around an inch bigger than the screen of the iPhone 8 Plus.

The information was found by ATH hidden within Apple.com and confirms that there will be three new phones: The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and a cheaper iPhone XR.

Apple exec Phil Schiller has still called it the most advanced LCD display in a smartphone, dubbing the 6.1-inch screen as "Liquid Retina".

Hurricane Florence's path: Track the storm here
The current forecast track suggests the hurricane will most likely approach North Carolina or SC on Thursday as it gathers speed. The hurricane's impacts could range from a strong storm surge to flooding from torrential rainfall and hurricane-force winds.

But this time around each new model takes inspiration from the iPhone X, which means edge-to-edge screens and no home button.

This even-bigger iPhone, which will be available on September 21 - with orders open the week before - represents Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly larger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video, as well as take photos wherever they are. It could also feature an OLED display. The new iPhones that will be launch may come with dual sim support, a first in iPhones.

"Fall detection is a feature we hope you never need, but it's really nice to know it's there", said Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams. There may have been gasps when the price of the iPhone X was revealed previous year, and there is likely to be a repeat of this when people hear price tag that will be attached to this phone when it goes on sale.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is all about the huge display! One tidbit: Apple's physical retail locations are now being visited by over 500 million customers a year. It features Smart HDR, which automatically makes improvements to photos using machine learning. What are your thoughts on the new accessories?

It also pushed smartphone prices into the stratosphere with the iPhone X retailing in Australia for $1579 and $1829.

Bob Woodward on Trump: 'People better wake up'
In his first live interview about the book, Woodward said that "some of the things Trump did and does jeopardize the real national security ".

The iPhone Xs is the next generation in Apple's iPhone lineup, moving the line forward with the original iPhone X aesthetic. The flat white oval charges the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time without having to plug them in. Apple announced a little over two years ago that it had shipped over 1 billion iPhones, and said earlier this year that it had 1.3 billion active iOS devices worldwide.

Workers prepare for the opening of an Apple store in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China January 23, 2015.

Both are expected to have a slightly longer battery life, as well.

Another focus of the new iPhone models is their cameras.
