Update: The Apple Online Store is down as well now. Expect it to go back up following the conclusion of today’s Apple event.

The Apple Online Store sitemap page is down ahead of today’s “Spring Loaded” event.

Usually, Apple takes the entire Apple Online Store down ahead of its special events. Today that doesn’t appear to have happened. (Although this could change as the day progresses.)

Nonetheless, this highlights that Apple is expecting to make some changes to the products on offer — likely including a new iPad Pro, iMac, and possible other products like Apple’s location-tracking AirTags. There may also be more information about Apple’s rumored Podcasts+ service.

For more on what we’re expecting from “Spring Loaded” check out our rumor rundown of the event. It will kick off at 10 a.m. today, a.k.a. April 20. You can tune in to watch it via the free Apple TV app, on Apple’s website, and on YouTube at the link below. Cult of Mac will also have stories on everything you need to know about Spring Loaded during, and following, today’s event.
