Apple Store currently offline

Apple’s online store is currently offline, displaying the familiar message that often, but not always, precedes new product additions:Apple Store offline

We’ll be back. We are busy updating the Apple Store for you and will be back soon.

If you haven’t heard, Apple is scheduled to hold a special media event today at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT. MacDailyNews will present live coverage of Apple’s special media event keynote address (link coming soon).

[Thanks to MacDailyNews readers too numerous to mention individually for the heads up.]


  1. So it begins.

    What will Apple announce in terms of new products given the type of event is less important then how Apple handles the iPhone 5c and 5s in a market becoming more saturated. Consumers are hanging on to their phones longer and fewer are upgrading every one to two years and carriers are doing away with contracts.

    Apple only has high end phones and there’s little growth in that market. To have the 5c sell for $100 less than the 5s which in turn will sell for $100 less the iPhone 6 especially if Apple increases the cost of the iPhone 6 will weaken Apple. Competitors are producing high end smartphones at or under $400 that drop in price several months after coming to market. Apple never drops it prices.

    We will see, soon.

    1. One thing the competition never understood was the notion of status. Samsung achieved it briefly with their Galaxy line, but after they were proven in a court of law to have copied Apple their luster ended. Using an Android phone in public is like pulling your pants down or farting in a crowded elevator. It proves to those near you how much of a zero class hack you actually are.

      1. At least Samsung servers don’t go down without warning leaving millions of users world wide in the shit. I’d rather drop my dacs and fart like a saxophone in packed elevator. I couldn’t care less providing I can use the service, never be a tech tart mate, doesn’t matter who you go with they will always let you down when you most need to use the service. Heads would now be rolling at Apple in Steve Jobs day. He’d at least have the decency to give us some warning and info. Not these days, they take your cash and leave you in the shit.

  2. On a separate note, just spare a thought for Tim Cook and the people putting this event together, all of which have either had no sleep or are sat at home right now, unable to sleep with all the activity and nerves.

    I can just imagine Tim Cook now in his PJs running through his Keynote presentation for the billionth time.

    Going to be a great presentation I think (and hope). Who doesn’t like an Apple event? 🙂

  3. The iPod Classic appears to be gone. Too bad. As a pure music player and tool for musicians, it’s the best of the best. The linear slider is not near as useable as the rotary click wheel. To bad they couldn’t have put an SDD in it, or put a software clickwheel on an iPod Touch
