In a new visual for the Apple Store website, Apple has posted a “We’ll be back” note for potential web visitors. What’s news about that? Well, there are 18 different languages that rotate through, each (assumedly) saying the same thing. We’re assuming this is regular maintenance for the site, but will keep an eye on things just in case.

It’s a nice international touch, and in keeping with Apple’s continuing success worldwide. Click on through to see if you can figure out all the languages – feel free to share in the comments below.

Cherokee Is Now An Official Language In iOS

The Cherokee Language isn’t one that doesn’t get a lot of play off of the reservation, but you’re probably carrying around at least one terminal for it in your pocket: the Cherokee Language is now a part of iOS.

It’s actually been on iOS for a while now, since iOS 4.1, but the road to getting there was long: three years ago, the Cherokee Nation made a request of Apple that they would add their language to those supported on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. In September, though, Apple finally baked it into their mobile operating system along with approximately fifty other languages.

Cherokee Nation’s language technology representative Joseph Erb was pretty excited to see it added. “There are countries vying to get on these devices for languages, so we are pretty excited we were included.”

Cherokee is a dying language, and only 8,000 members of the approximately 300,000 strong tribe still speak it. Perhaps a few more will be turned on now that it’s a part of the most respected mobile operating system on Earth.
