  • The Apple store is down ahead of its April 'Spring Loaded' event.
  • Apple is expected to debut a bunch of new products later today.

As is expected, the Apple Store has gone down ahead of today's April Apple event where the company is expected to introduce a new iPad Pro, AirTags, and possibly a new iMac.

Apple's store "front" still stands but clicking on any product or buy link yields the message "Be Right Back. We're making updates to the Apple Store. Check back soon."

It is likely the store will come online as soon as the event later today comes to a close.

Apple announced its event last week, from that report:
