Apple has an exciting day ahead, and our official iPhone 5 liveblog is the best place to go for up-to-the-second news from our own Josh and Nilay, who are on the ground in San Francisco. Minutes after the liveblog ends, however, you might want to plug in some earphones and tune in for a very special episode of The Vergecast for a deeper dive into all the major stories. Ross Miller and David Pierce will be hosting the broadcast live from our studio in New York, and you can expect fun, surprises, laughter, love, and a number of special guests — including Josh and Nilay themselves to talk about the whole experience first-hand. Think of it as the iPhone after-party — the coolest after-party you can have in the early afternoon (late morning on the West Coast). On a Wednesday (Does the West Coast have Wednesdays?).
