Here's everything that happened at Apple's huge iPhone 11 launch event

Apple iphone event 2019Apple

Apple just announced a slew of new products, including iPhones and an Apple Watch.

On Tuesday, Apple invited journalists, Wall Street analysts, and VIPs to the Steve Jobs Theater on its new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California, to announce its most anticipated products of the year.

Apple's product announcements are a Silicon Valley tradition, dating back over 20 years. Apple's top executives get up on stage, show off the company's new products, and explain what makes these gadgets "magical" and the "best ever."

We had a pretty good idea of what to expect on Tuesday, thanks to a handful of leaks and reports from reputable publications. But we finally got the complete, official story on Tuesday.

Here's everything Apple announced at its big iPhone 11 event:
