Something Apple this way comes?

Apple has updated its System Status page to say that its online store will be “updated and unavailable” due to “maintenance” tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21, between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time .

 

 

This could mean that Apple is preparing for the rumored iPad launch that’s been predicted for the week, with the extra hint that Apple commonly issues press releases at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time, which is exactly when the maintenance update is scheduled to end.

 

A little light for an actual hint, but we can work with it.

 

The last couple of weeks has been home to a host of rumors expecting Apple to announce three new iPad Pro models in the next few weeks, including an all-new 10.5-inch model with slimmer bezels and updated 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch versions.

 

This wouldn’t necessarily be a launch, per se, rather an official press invite to a launch. If it’s actually a real life Apple Thing at all.

 

Other products rumored to be in the launch line up include a larger iPhone SE model with 128GB storage, new Apple Watch bands, and a red color option for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

 

Of course, this could just mean that the store is down for maintenance. Booooorrrrring. We want new iPads for all!
