There’s typically a period of anticipation after every Apple keynote, between a new product being announced and it arriving in stores for customers to buy.
That may not be the case with today’s Mac event, as a photo shared online show Apple Stores set up with outside line dividers — suggesting that whatever Apple announces today may well go on sale immediately following the event.
The picture posted online showed Apple’s San Francisco Apple store, at which not only are line dividers already erected, but there is also space on the floor for what could be a possible display area. Other users commenting on the Reddit thread suggest Apple stores elsewhere have taken similar steps.
Today’s Apple event is reported to include a fancy new MacBook Pro with Magic Toolbar, 12-inch Retina MacBook, and possible new iMac. For our run-down on everything we’re expecting to see, check out our video here.
The event is set to kick off at 10am PT (1pm ET). Make sure to check back in at Cult of Mac, where we’ll be liveblogging the event.
