It's September 2016, which means it's time for another Apple iPhone keynote. If you've got an aging iPhone 6 or 6s and eager for the next big thing, stay tuned — the much-hyped iPhone 7 (and a bevy of new features) will very likely be on its way.

First, let's talk time and date. When does the Apple event start? 1 p.m. Eastern. How long will it last? It's not clear, but last year's iPhone event was 139 minutes. They're generally one, one and a half or two hours long. How can you watch it? Open Safari and go here.

CEO Tim Cook and other Apple execs will probably introduce the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus, the Apple Watch 2 and a new line of MacBook Pros — in what order, we don't know. We'll also learn the release date of iOS 10.

We do know the expected features, thanks to a leaked dump from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, obtained by AppleInsider. The iPhone 7 will have increased storage, a nicer display, a dual camera (iPhone 7 Plus only) with better low-light capabilities, Lightning EarPods and a dongle included, a better flash and — you guessed it — no headphone jack.

We'll have a liveblog going and will be tweeting live from @TechMic. Stay tuned!
