Apple on Friday sent invitations to a Sept. 12 event in the Steve Jobs Theater at its new "spaceship" campus in Cupertino.

"Let's meet at our place," reads the invitation to reporters. The most anticipate of the new products will be an all-new iPhone featuring an edge-to-edge screen, no physical home button and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology (which we wrote about this morning.)

Here's what to expect:

  • Three new iPhones. Two will be modest updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, plus the high-end model detailed above
  • Updates to the Apple Watch line, including models with built-in cellular connections
  • An Apple TV set-top box capable of displaying 4K content
  • A final version of iOS 11, an update to the iPhone/iPad operating system that supports augmented reality, among other new features
  • The "High Sierra" update to MacOS

The Supreme Court rejected in a 5-3 decision Monday Wisconsin Democrats' request to reinstate an extension of the deadline for counting absentee ballots to six days after Election Day, as long as they're postmarked by Nov. 3.

Why it matters: All ballots must now be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day in Wisconsin, a critical swing state in the presidential election.

The Senate voted 52-48 on Monday to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. She is expected to be sworn in within hours.

Why it matters: President Trump and Senate Republicans have succeeded in confirming a third conservative justice in just four years, tilting the balance of the Supreme Court firmly to the right for perhaps a generation.
