Apple flags are now flying over Bill Graham Civic Center in San Francisco, California, as the company prepares the venue for Wednesday’s iPhone 7 announcement. Apple’s keynote kicks off at 10am PT/1pm ET, where we expect to see upgraded iPhones and a new Apple Watch introduced. Check out more shots of the scene after the break…

Apple typically decks out the venue with black and white Apple flags and the Apple Store-like logo at the entrance of the civic center, and this year is no different. We’re also seeing Apple’s bokeh art in the shape of the company logo first spotted on the official event announcement on display at Bill Graham. This is likely a teaser for the camera effects that are possible from the dual camera system on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Thanks Howard!
