Apple's online store to go down tomorrow, new products imminent?

Apple is also believed to be unveiling a new 7.9-inch iPad Pro mini, 10.5-inch iPad Pro with slim bezels, and an updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro in the near future.

Reports last week claimed Apple would avoid a gathering this time around and just opt for a press release.

We've been expecting a 2017 March Apple Event for weeks and multiple sources pointed to new Apple products this month. This has sparked speculation that the company could unveil new devices tomorrow without a press event.

The move would be the first major overhaul of Apple's iPad Pro line, replacing ageing models with sleek models that may feature an edge to edge display and no home button.

The Apple Store is going down tonight and you could wake up to see new Apple products without an event. Expected initial shipments of the new 10.5-inch iPad are likely to reach one million units and are expected to increase up to 1.2 million units a month from the second quarter. Both the 12.9-inch and 10.5 inch iPad models are said to come with a new A10X processor.

Secret Service stepping up security after multiple scares
White House press secretary Sean Spicer praised the agency's response on Twitter. There have been two other white house security breaches in eight days.

Apple also lists Photo Print Products are also scheduled for maintenance at the same time, which could mean that they'll be updating the infrastructure for that or suggest that this maintenance is not related to new products.

With bated breath, electronics consumers are eagerly anticipating the 2017 iPad Pro 2 release date, price and specs announcement. As to pricing, the 10.5-inch variant may take the $599 slot for a new report say that the 9.7-inch will be scaled down to $499 to make room for the new form factor, according to Forbes. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro model is estimated to be priced for as low as $299.

The larger iPad model is also expected to gain the 12-megapixel rear camera and True Tone flash from the smaller model. "The Apple Store will be updated and unavailable during this time". There are no plans for a big keynote, but there's still a chance the Apple store will return with some sweet surprises.

Apple has been contacted for comment concerning the delay of the launch of the trio of new iPads, but is yet to respond.
