Apple Online Store will be offline tonight as it is 'being updated'

Apple's 10.5-Inch iPad Pro 2 Specifications and features to expect

Apple's 10.5-Inch iPad Pro 2 Specifications and features to expect

The analysts said Apple would most-likely debut its latest product refresh between Monday March 20th and Friday March 24th 2017.

Additionally, whenever Cupertino plans to launch new products, it has historically taken its website down for maintenance - often lasting several hours in the early morning - during which product landing pages, purchasing options, and other data is updated. The store would be back up just in time for a morning announcement from the company. It naturally generates speculations that the unavailability of the online store is due to the fact that Apple is rumored to launch new products.

The timing of this downtime has fuelled speculation that Apple is gearing up to launch new products.

More Departures in Uber as Two Executives Leave
In addition to this weekend's two executive departures, Uber has faced something of an executive exodus this year. In its statement, Uber did not acknowledge the concerns Jones raised, but wished him luck in future endeavors.

If the latest analysts' report is correct, and the event is scheduled for next week, then would be much shorter notice than the company usually leaves. Notably, recent reports have suggested that Apple may release a new 9.7-inch iPad Pro without a special event. Previous rumors have heavily emphasized that at least three new iPad models will be unveiled this month.

In addition to this, Mac Otakara, a Japanese blog suggested that the Cupertino giant will throw a March event to introduce its all new iPad Pro lineup. Besides new slates, there has been talk that Apple will soon announce a 128GB Apple iPhone SE, and a red-hued Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. However, there has been no "smoking gun" about which particular new products are getting updates. Do you think Apple is planning to release new products?
