Apple’s Online Apple Store has gone down ahead of the iPhone 11 pre-orders in the early hours of this morning at 5am PST.

When it comes back, customers will be free to order one of Apple’s new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max handsets for delivery on September 20. Well, so long as you’re quick, that is!

The Apple Online Store has gone down hours ahead of today’s special event. “Be right back,” reads a notice on the site. “We’re making updates to the Apple Store. Check back soon.”

When the Online Store returns after the conclusion of today’s “By Innovation Only” event, we expect to see information about new iPhones, a refreshed Apple Watch, and more.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro has been removed from the Apple Online Store following the introduction of the new iPad Air.

Apple’s newest slate combines the same 10.5-inch screen with its fastest A12 Bionic processor, making the old iPad Pro redundant. You will still be able to buy the device from third-parties for now, however — and at a discounted rate.

The Apple Online Store has mysteriously gone down this morning, leading fans to wonder whether AirPower and new iPads are on the way.

Apple has an event planned for March 25, but it is thought that will focus on services rather than hardware. It is certainly plausible that refreshed devices will be added to the store this morning without much fanfare.

As expected, the Apple Online Store has gone down (purposely) hours ahead of today’s special event.

When it returns following Apple’s keynote event, we expect to see redesigned versions of the iPad Pro, a new low-cost MacBook, refreshed iMac models, and — after four years of waiting — a more powerful Mac mini desktop.

The Apple online store is down ahead of today’s big education event, which kicks off at 10 a.m. central time.

Downtime is an indication that Apple is preparing to add new products to its lineup, which could be available to purchase or pre-order later today. Recent rumors have hinted at the arrival of a new MacBook Air and an even more affordable iPad.

You’ve written your wish-list and sent it off to Santa, and now it’s time to hit the hay before you wake up to find out if you’ve been good enough this year. In other words, the Apple store is now down ahead of today’s special event.

When it comes back up, we expect to see a bunch of exciting new products, including Apple Watch Series 3, Apple TV 4K, and of course, iPhone X.
