The most exciting day of the year for Apple fans is finally here. After months of anticipation, and an endless stream of rumors, Apple today is poised to introduce its iPhone 11 lineup. That said, Apple’s special event today isn’t an iPhone-only affair. On the contrary, Apple has historically used its September event to introduce a range of new hardware, with the Apple Watch being a prime example.

In light of that, Apple kicked of today’s media event with a slew of updates and announcements, including new details regarding Apple Arcade, Apple TV Plus, and a brand new 7th-generation 10.2-inch iPad. Building on that momentum, Apple just a few moments officially introduced the Apple Watch Series 5, the next-gen version of its increasingly popular wearable.
