Apple is prepped to host Tuesday what many speculate will be the most-significant product announcement since founder and CEO Steve Jobs passed away in 2011.

Featured products from the forthcoming fall lineup will likely include two larger-screen iPhone 6 models, the company’s first piece of wearable tech in the form of a smartwatch (dubbed iWatch or iTime by the media), the largest iPad yet, and the company’s latest iOS 8 mobile software.

The notoriously secretive Cupertino, Calif. company has released no official details leading up to the event, with the exception of the invitation tagline, “Wish we could say more.” The announcement will take place at the Flint Center in Cupertino — the spot where Jobs first unveiled the Mac — at 1 p.m. ET (REPORT: Report: New Video Gives Full, Detailed Look At iPhone 6)

Apple will be live-streaming the event for Safari, Mac OS X and iOS 6 users here, while those using other browsers, including Chrome and Firefox, can watch after installing the user agent switchers linked above, which effectively “trick” websites like Apple’s into thinking you’re using Safari or another supported OS, according to Mashable.
