UPDATED: Apple Store Down -- No iPad Pre-Orders, Could be Nothing...

Apple Store Down

UDPATE: Nothing. Behind-the-scenes maintenance or prep-work for some later update. Seriously. Can't find a difference...

ORIGINAYes, the Apple Store is down. We have no idea if this is for iPad pre-order setup, for some other product update/refresh, or for behind-the-scenes maintenance.

If you have any ideas, let us know in the comments and we'll update as soon as it's back!

[Thanks to Andy for the tip!]

UPDATED: Apple Store Down -- No iPad Pre-Orders, Could be Nothing...


The Valentines Day stuff was already there before it went down. Was probably just maintenance. Doesn't appear to be anything new.
