It naturally generates speculations that the unavailability of the online store is due to the fact that Apple is rumored to launch new products.

Given Apple is rumoured to be updating its iPad line, as well as adding new iPhone storage and color options, it seems there's a decent chance tomorrow might be the day.

Apple will be releasing three new models this year - a 9.7-, 10.5- and 12.9- inch model. Update: The Apple Store is still up several minutes after the announced start time.


Reports have also suggested that Apple may launch four iPad Pro tablets. The Apple System Status page shows besides the current status of a service also upcoming maintenance.

The existing 12.9-inch iPad Pro will also be getting the True Tone display, which is now limited to the current 9.7-inch model. So whatever new products are coming tomorrow, if indeed they are coming, will more than likely be announced via an official press release - as opposed to an official product-unveiling event, such as the company held past year on March 21st.

The 10.5-inch version of the iPad Pro is expected to ditch the home button and, therefore, may have slimmer bezels.


There is huge possibility that the iPad 4, iPad mini 2 and iPhone 5 will all miss out on iOS 11 compatibility, but we'll have to wait for the company to make an official statement.

The reason why the entire world is highly anticipating Apple's devices is because the company is said to equip them with an innovative edge-to-edge display.

Apple today cut the price of its least expensive 9.7-in. iPad by $70, and as it did, dropped the "Air" nameplate and returned to simply "iPad" as the moniker. The special edition (PRODUCT) RED iPhone will be available to order online worldwide and in stores beginning March 24. Actually, other Apple products are still pricey and Apple's "underpricing" strategy, for now, is only for the AirPods and Apple Watch, which Cybart reveals could still fetch higher prices without any issue. The iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro were also announced at a March event in 2016.
