This is a live blog from CNBC Tech Correspondent Jon Fortt, reporting from Apple's "Let's Talk iPhone" event at the company's corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Real-time stock price: The event is being hosted by CEO Tim Cook and is the company's first major product launch since the departure of Steve Jobs.
All times are Eastern.
2:55 pm: In what appears to be an indication of how much interest there is in Apple's announcement, Apple.com is down. We're getting the message: Access Denied. You don't have permission to access "http://www.apple.com/" on this server.
2:44 pm: The event is over.
2:42 pm: Tim Cook is back on stage. For the first time in a decade, music isn't center stage and the iPod line gets no design update at all. It's about software and services.
2:40 pm: In 28 more countries a week later. 70 countries by year end.
2:38 pm: The iPhone 4 and 3GS will live on. The 3GS is officially free with a contract. I think this is Apple's first time offering three models at once. October 14 launch for the 4S. Sprint will have the phone. So will KDDI in Japan.
2:36 PM: Is this disappointing? For the geeks, yes. But for investors, this minor hardware change means Apple will have an easier time satisfying demand in its busiest quarter.Page 1 of 8 | Next Page
