Apple's event is still a few minutes off, but the company is already showing off the first new product: its Apple Park campus. Known during its years of construction as "the spaceship," today's event is the first public look at the new 175-acre corporate campus.

Media and guests are in the Steve Jobs Theater at the visitor's center that sits just outside the ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building. For a more complete look at what's inside that part of the campus, here's the big feature Wired's Steven Levy did earlier this year.

The bottom line: There is a lot of glass here. And it's so pristine that one guest cut his eye open by walking into one of the glass walls as he exited the restroom.

President Trump told the New York Post on Thursday that he plans to deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House lawn, despite bipartisan criticism of the optics and legality of the location.

Why it matters: Previous presidents avoided blurring staged campaign-style events — like party conventions — with official business of governing on the White House premises, per Politico.

Antibody drugs and various medicine cocktails against the coronavirus are progressing and may provide some relief before vaccines.

The big picture: Everyone wants to know how and when they can return to "normal" life, as vaccines are not expected to be ready for most Americans for at least a year. Two therapies are known to be helpful, and more could be announced by late September, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci tells Axios.
