Apple Store Goes down Ahead of Today’s iPhone SE and iPad Pro Event


Apple Store down

And so it begins! The Apple Online Store is now down ahead of today’s keynote, which kicks off at 10 a.m. PST. When it comes back up, we expect it to be populated by iPhone SE, a brand new iPad, new Apple Watch bands, and more.

Apple traditionally pulls its Online Store before a big event, and it’s a sign that new products are incoming. The fact that’s it’s now down more than five hours before the event kicks off suggests that there is plenty for Apple to add to its lineup.

Apple has also introduced a new notice, which reads:

We can’t wait to show you what we have in store.

Our virtual doors are just about to open.
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and patience as we work to get everyone in as quickly as possible.
Keep checking back, because it won’t be long now.

We’re expecting four big announcements from today’s event, including the much-anticipated iPhone SE, a 9.7-inch iPad Pro that will replace the iPad Air family, brand new Apple Watch bands in fancy new colors, and a bunch of big software updates.

We’re not expecting to see any new Macs, but there’s always a chance Apple will surprise us.

You’ll be able to watch Apple’s keynote live online or on your Apple TV, and we’ll be covering it all right here on iPhoneHacks, so be sure to check in throughout the day for updates.
