Here's what it's like to attend a big Apple event in person

Apple’s media events are a grand affair.

Major news outlets from around the world travel to California at the company’s invite for a one-day unveiling of its latest products. 

On Wednesday, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 6s, a new Apple TV, and more. It rented out the 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco for what’s expected to be its biggest event yet.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a member of the press at one of these spectacles, take a look.

Apple events usually start at 10 a.m. California time, so you get to the venue early in the morning.
