Apple Store Goes Down Ahead of Apple’s iPhone Event

So, what will it be? Signs are certainly pointing to an iPhone 4S as being the only new iPhone we’ll see this afternoon.

Either way, it’s highly probably that we will see some new product hit Apple’s online store after the media event concludes.

That’s because Apple’s online store is currently down, which normally means the ability to order a new product, or at least pre-order a new product, is in the cards…

Obviously, the ability to order new hardware bodes well for a possible iOS 5 GM release later in the day as well.

In any light, we’ll know the full unabridged story in little over an hour from now. Right after Apple gets finished bragging about how many iPhones, iPads, and apps they sold this past quarter.

Got your credit cards ready?
