Apple Store Goes Down Ahead Of WWDC

Screen Shot 2013-06-10 at 15.26.48

With just over two hours to go until Apple kicks off its WWDC 2013 keynote, the Apple online store has gone down. We can’t say we’re hugely surprised, but the move does suggest that we won’t just see software previews today, but also new hardware as well.

Recent rumors have suggested that Apple will refresh its entire notebook lineup today, introducing Intel’s latest Haswell processors to the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. Some suggest we’ll finally see a new Mac Pro as well, and new iMacs.

We might also see some smaller additions, such as new AirPort and Time Capsule devices compatible with the latest 802.11 ac standard. However, it’s unlikely these will get a mention during the show, so look out for them when the store is back up.

Apple’s WWDC keynote kicks off at 10 a.m. PST, and the store should be available again soon after it has finished.

    New Mac pro please!

    According to my sources, who are very close to the matter, they are only going to talk about the new Mac Pro and new Cinema Display at the keynote. The whole lineup is getting moved to Haswell but the rest will just show up online when the store comes up. Haswell, slightly faster RAM and new ac compat wifi is all they are getting.

    Nothing will be said about any iOS devices, including the Apple TV, and nothing about iRadio today. That’s coming in the Fall Media event

    I’m hoping for a thinner cheaper Cinema Display
