Apple Store Goes Down Ahead of ‘Time Flies’ Event

Apple’s online store has gone down ahead of the company’s ‘Time Flies’ event later today. It is typical for Apple to take down its online store ahead of major product announcements.

Apple is expected to announce the Apple Watch Series 6, a low-cost Apple Watch SE, iPad Air 4, and the eighth-generation iPad at its event later today. The company usually holds an event in September to announce new iPhones but it has had to delay their launch by a few weeks due to the ongoing pandemic. It is now expected to announce the new iPhones in mid-October and then put them up on sale by the end of the month.
