The Apple Store Is Down – Got Any Bets On What It Could Be?

By •

I'm *pretty* sure it says,
I'm *pretty* sure it says, "We'll be back."

The Apple store is down on Apple’s website, which typically happens when a new product is about to come online and be sold to the public. With the iPad Mini all but confirmed to be released at a separate event, and the iPhone 5 a semi-distant last-week memory, chances are this is a simple update or change. Maybe a simple speed bump for one of the Mac computers? The iMac, perhaps?

Of course, the fan boy in me really wants it to be something super cool, so I’m asking you all here to jump in with your wildest fantasy of why the Apple store is down. Ready? Go!

    The next time that there’s a new iMac, it is going to include much more than a speed bump.

    New 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display?

  3. CaptainSolo says:

    Today is now the anniversary of Steve Jobs’ passing. Perhaps it is more of a site update in commemoration, rather than a product update.

    Steve Jobs’ passing? It’s been a year today (10/05). If it was the iPad Mini would it not be a slap in the face to Jobs considering his view on how perfect the size of the original is?

  5. Whodakat says:

    Its the iWatch! And its magical!

  6. EldonChew says:

    They might be updating the order status of the iPod family!
    Might be shipping today!

    It’s got to be a Steve Jobs tribute.

    It surely could be getting ready for the anniversary of his passing, which is tomorrow, Cupertino time. There are some reports that he had been convinced, at least slightly, on the potential of a smaller iPad device.

    I certainly hope so.

    Steve Jobs memorial sure, but why on the store front and not the main page?

  12. Koban4max says:

    I bet it’s the new ipod. From keynote presentation…

  13. Joshua Dodge says:

    It’s the iPhone 6: Nuclear powered 100 year battery, iTeleport to beam you up to Starship Enterprise and most importantly bigger and smaller at the same time

  14. ondrejsynacek says:

    New iTunes software or Steve Jobs memorial page. I hope its updated iMac/Mac mini.

  15. Tallest_Skill says:

    I hope it’s some sexy photos of Mr. Jobs. Or, at the least, Woz.

    Being the anniversary of Mr. Jobs death, it’s the least they could do for us.

  16. Mirage299 says:

    iPhone 5 off-contract

  17. sebastiendeb says:

    new itunes software and ipod touch 5g starts to schip

  18. marioyohanes says:

    My bet would be new iPhone 5 accessories or simply a minor update on pricing scheme like off contract iPhone 5.

  19. Cgs101 says:

    I hope they’re sorting out their iPhone 5 inventory cause my order has been in pending for 2 weeks!

  20. JJoughin says:

    The new IMAC, I bet your money on it :) All the stores stopped ordering the ‘current’ 27″ 2-3 weeks ago. The only question is will the new one have retina display. In my opinion… it will.

  21. Novux says:

    Store is back up. Am I missing something notable? I see nothing new.

  22. Grayham says:

    What I’d really like to see are official, Apple upgrades for exisisting MacPros.
    So that those of us who bought the bomb-proof, professional machines can bring them up to speed without having to sell the children… again!
    Well, you said we could fantasize!

  23. BenjyWeeks says:

    AAAAAND IT’S…nothing?

  24. joewaylo says:

    Only thing I see as new are price adjustments and a tab on the bottom left called Refurbushed.

    I could see him going for it based on profits for sure, he had to of known the market for a tablet at that price, and with Apple quality, was larger than anything anyone could imagine.
