Apple's Online Store Down Ahead of Today's iPhone 7 Event

Apple's online storefront has been taken offline this morning, less than six hours prior to the company's upcoming "See You on the 7th" media event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, where Tim Cook and other senior executives are expected to announce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, second-generation Apple Watch, new Beats products, and possibly other updates.

Apple will provide a live stream (spoiler free) of the keynote on the Apple TV and on iOS and Mac devices through its website, starting at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. MacRumors will also have full coverage of the event, with a live blog on our front page at MacRumors.com and updates in 140 characters or less through our @MacRumorsLive account on Twitter. Last week, we outlined what to expect at the event.

We'll also have specific coverage of today's announcements in separate news stories, and our community forums are a great place for readers to discuss the announcements before, during, and after the event. Be sure to keep tabs on the iPhone and Apple Watch sections in particular for the latest discussions.

Damn, I was just about to buy an iPhone 6S and an :apple:Watch. Any chance we might see a new version of one or both of them?:eek:

I keep wondering if this is just a marketing trick or is the store technically really that bad that it can't add/update products within seconds. Just imagine Amazon would go down for hours each time they add a new product. Why would they voluntary loose half a day of business?


I guess it stops people from ordering an iPhone 6s/plus on the same day and then complaining about it.

Just stumbled across this Gif which may be old but I have never seen before.

I would love it if they did something like this during their presentation today!

It would be cool if they did a "One more thing" announcement at the end like in the old days and surprised everyone with a new Mac Pro or something.

Let it be exiting, like MacBook Pro, unlike next iPhone 6.

Why is this still considered "News" and why are there always pages of pages of comments on this stupid topic? OMG The Apple Store is down on the day of a big event!!! OMG the world is shattering!


And yet, here you are..... :confused:

It's been a while...


Finished it for you

By Staind

And it's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high (Innovation, new products)
And it's been awhile
Since I first saw you (MBP)
And it's been awhile
Since I could stand on my own two feet again (Eddy Cue)
And it's been awhile
Since I could call you (800-APL-CARE)

And everything I can't remember
As f*****d up as it all may seem (General MR consensus about Apple)
The consequences that I've rendered (TC needs to be fired)
I've stretched myself beyond my means (Apple prices)

And it's been awhile
Since I can say that I wasn't addicted (iphone Smombies))
And it's been awhile
Since I can say I love myself as well (LOOKING THINNER)
And it's been awhile
Since I've gone and f*****d things up just like I always do (Tim Cook according to MR posters)
And it's been awhile
But all that s**t seems to disappear when I'm with you

And everything I can't remember (so much in the pipeline)
As f***d up as it all may seem (no Mac Mini)
The consequences that I've rendered (Apple share price drops)
I've gone and f****d things up again (doomed)

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away (EU TAX NOTICE)
Just one more peaceful day! (With no negative Apple news)

And it's been awhile
Since I could look at myself straight (Well not really straight, but no problem HERE)
And it's been awhile
Since I said I'm sorry(For no updated MBPs)
And it's been awhile
Since I've seen the way the candles light your face
And it's been awhile
But I can still remember just the way you taste

And everything I can't remember
As f****d up as it all may seem to be I know it's me
I cannot blame this on my father (SJ)
He did the best he could for me

And it's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile
Since I said I'm sorry
