Apple temporarily took down its online store Tuesday morning ahead of the “Time Flies” event, at which the company will introduce a range of new products.

You can read more about what we expect to see at today’s event. The TL;DR version? A new iPad Air, Apple Watch Series 6, and possibly other devices like AirTags, AirPods Studio headphones, a possible Apple Watch SE, a HomePod mini, and more. One thing few people expect is the iPhone 12 handsets, which likely will debut at a separate special event later this year.

The Apple Online Store undoubtedly will reopen following today’s 10 a.m. PDT event, hopefully with a bevy of goodies for ordering, pre-ordering or, at the very least, reading a bit more about.

As ever, we’ll be covering Apple’s live event here at Cult of Mac with plenty of breaking news and analysis. (Here’s how you can watch the Time Flies event yourself.)

What are you most excited about seeing later today? Let us know in the comments below.
