    Apple is holding Monday’s event at the Town Hall auditorium at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The venue, which seats a few hundred people, is a notable location and has a lot of history for Apple.

    Today's event may not be Apple’s flashiest this year, but it’s important for getting more of Apple’s current iPhone and iPad users to upgrade their devices. Nearly 40 percent of iPhone owners have one of the older 4-inch models instead of the larger handsets. And fewer people have been buying new iPads, despite Apple’s efforts to make them more laptop-like.

    It sounds like we're listening to Beats One as we get ready for this to start.
  • ben 3/21/2016 4:51:18 PM
    I hope that they introduce the Apple watch 2!!!!! That is actually useful!
  • Digital Snuggles 3/21/2016 4:53:24 PM
    They don't even need to innovate - just give me better battery life.

    It looks like everyone is seated, and it's gotten quiet in here as we wait for the event to start.

    The event kicks off a busy week for Apple. The company will face off against the US government in a Southern California court Tuesday, where it will argue that it shouldn’t have to create new software to help the FBI unlock an iPhone 5C used in December’s San Bernardino, California, terrorist attack.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:55:26 PM
    Apple argues it shouldn't be forced to make its phones less secure, while the FBI says it needs Apple’s help to determine if information on the iPhone could reveal more about the terrorists' activities.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:55:38 PM
    I'll be heading to Riverside after this event to cover the hearing tomorrow.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:18 PM
    There was some other big legal news for Apple this morning. The Supreme Court said it will consider the Apple v. Samsung case. It hasn't looked at a design patent case since the 1800s, which is crazy.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:33 PM
    Those cases were about things like carpet color. Computers, let alone smartphones, didn't even exist at that time.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:45 PM
    We're getting the warning that the presentation will be starting shortly.

    Ok. The lights have dimmed. It's go time
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:00:59 PM
    We're seeing a video that's running through the history of Apple in words like "Genius Bar." "Newton" is crossed out. haha
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:01:05 PM
    That was one of Apple's rare misses.

  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:02:27 PM
    "Recently we passed a major milestone that no one could have imagined. There are now 1 billion Apple devices in use around the world."
  • Scott Stein 3/21/2016 5:02:28 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:02:38 PM
    The company said that number in January during its last earnings report.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:02:53 PM
    "Our products are such an important part of peoples' daily lives and with that comes a significant responsibility."
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:03:01 PM
    "I'd like to address something that's on the minds of everyone this morning."
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 5:03:13 PM
    "We built the iPhone for you, our customers, and we know it's a deeply personal device."
