The online Apple Store has been down for some time now, but no one is quite sure why.
While it isn’t unusual for the Apple Store to go down on the day of a keynote, any time it goes down for any other reason makes people immediately go, “Uh oh … is something new coming?” For whatever reason, Apple always takes its site down when its adding new products, but it could also just be a database backup.
The issue with this particular outage is MacBook Pros, iMacs and MacBook Airs are all due for updates, so this may be it.
We’ll keep an eye on it and be sure to cover whatever new products may be released.
UPDATE: It appears they were adding graphics for Father’s Day.
