Today marks the official launch of Apple's upcoming iPhones, including the premium iPhone X, but at today's event a lot more will be unveiled.

For months leaks have spilled specifications that could possibly feature in the three new iPhones and Apple's other products, including a new Apple Watch.

However two days before the massive reveal, reports emerged that a disgruntled employee leaked code taken from Apple's iOS 11 operating system.

Here's a rundown of what Apple may reveal at its Apple Park HQ in Cupertino, California:

1. Three iPhones: The firmware indicates that Apple is ditching the S branding and instead the devices will be named iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, which may cost $1,000.
...and we now have the name of all three new iPhones. Are you ready for this?

2. Face ID: The iPhone X may come with a new, improved facial recognition software dubbed Pearl that will be smart enough to detect facial expressions, plus it reportedly will have a pay feature.

3.  Animojis: Apple fans will be excited to know that they will be able to create their own "custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions."

All the different parameters for the Animoji 3D models, presumably Face ID can detect all these states. https://t.co/nQBsfH8i63 pic.twitter.com/TPvZJLWzVA

4. Apple Watch LTE: Apple is perhaps adding an LTE modem to the device, meaning features such as phone calls, sending text messages and installing software, could function without a iPhone.

Well fortunately there are no actual iPhone 8 or iPhone X renders in the OS, but the LTE Apple Watch and revised AirPods weren't so lucky pic.twitter.com/ddO1vL0PgA

5. AirPods:  After the controversial AirPod release, Apple stuck to its redesign of removing the headphone jack and today may release an improved pair of AirPods.

6. Apple TV: The next-gen Apple TV may be powerful enough to send 4K video to a 4K TV.
