Apple Store down ahead of iPad Air 2 unveiling

Apple Store down

Ahead of tonight’s expected iPad Air 2 unveiling, Apple has temporarily taken down its online store; suggesting new products are on the way.

In what has become a familiar precursor to new product unveilings, the Apple store has shut its digital doors for the afternoon, instead being replaced by the company’s traditional holding note.

"We'll be back" a note on the Apple Store homepage reads. It adds: "We're busy updating the Apple Store for you and will be back soon."

It is likely the store will reopen with new products in tow shortly after the refreshed iPads enter the realms of reality this evening.

Although the Cupertino-based company has yet to formally detail exactly what new products will be announced this evening, an iPad Air 2 tablet is believed to be heading for launch alongside an iPad mini 3, new Macs and a heavily updated Apple TV unit.

While all these new products are unlikely to be immediately available for purchase, the store could offer pre-orders and early looks at the upcoming devices.

If you’re looking to keep tabs on the big announcement, you can find out how to watch the Apple event here, or simply keep it locked to TrustedReviews for all the latest.

What a waste of money! Why do Americans these days always feel the need to get the latest iStuff? There is barely any difference between the very first iPad and the latest model. A touch screen table with internet and a cam… WOW!

You shouldn't be able to complain about the economy or your own personal financial situation if you blow your money on trivial Apple crap.

Many American have a steak taste on a hamburger budget . That's part of the problem we now face from a long time ago. Barrow to the max and then whine about now having enough money . Nice house , car or truck and boat. Can you afford them or does it really matter at this period of time?

I'm just gonna make smart decisions with my money so I don't end up with an empty bank account:

1) Paying off my debts as they come to me. Never holding a credit card balance longer than a month. If this means living in a small studio apartment and eating ramen, rice, and beans, so be it.

2) I will always buy small, fuel efficient and durable cars. I drive a 2006 Honda Civic now. It costs me nothing to fill up and next to nothing to insure ($25/month from Insurance Panda… woohoo!). I will not drive when I don’t need to, and use public transportation whenever possible.

3) Developing multiple revenue streams. Doing side jobs. Building up small businesses. Doing contract work. Basically doing whatever I can to generate income from multiple sources.

4) Grow my revenue and assets no matter what. Make sure I am always expanding and develop them to the point that they consistently generate reliable cash flow.

5) The most important one - make as much as I can. Save as much as I can.

iPhones... ecigarettes... Starbucks... Chipotle Burritos...new clothes.. organic lipgloss... expensive yoga classes. Why not try living in your means for once? No wonder we have a debt crisis

Relax love, it's just an iPad. All the effort living to your means will be a waste of time as you will drop dead with stress if you get worked up over something so small. Anyway, what do you suggest? That all these tech firms stop producing goods and close for good? So we don't have anything new to spend our money on? How about closing all the pubs and restaurants while were at it so we have buy our food from Aldi or Kwik-e-mart. Infact, lets all just do ourselves in, that will save us an absolute fortune!
