Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

It's new iPhone day, and as usual our team is preparing for Apple's launch event, which is scheduled to stream live at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT. We'll be operating under new leadership, so get acquainted with new EIC Dana Wollman before you check out one tech-filled Mercedes crossover and the details of a small manufacturing tweak from Tesla.


Engadget's next chapterA letter from the editor

It's that time of year again, when Apple launches a slew of new mobile devices and who knows what else. There will be a live video stream available from Apple Park, and this year it will be available on Twitter, too. Of course, we will have a liveblog from the scene (which you can find right here when it goes live) thanks to Chris Velazco and Dana Wollman. Some of the surprise has already been spoiled, thanks to a series of leaks, but we'll be ready for whatever Tim Cook and company unveil this afternoon.

It's priced at $50 for people who already have Verizon wireless and $70 for those who don't, promising speeds of "around 300 Mbps" up to 1 Gbps, with no data caps. Early adopters will also be greeted by a combo of three months' free YouTube TV access and either an Apple TV 4K or a Chromecast Ultra for free.
